Now available in paperback, the Routledge Handbook of South Asian Politics examines key issues in politics of the five independent states of the South Asian region: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Nepal. Written by experts in their respective areas, this Handbook introduces the reader to the politics of South Asia by presenting the prevailing agreements and disagreements in the literature.

In the first two sections, the Handbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the modern political history of the states of the region and an overview of the independence movements in the former colonial states. The other sections focus on the political changes that have occurred in the postcolonial states since independence, as well as the successive political changes in Nepal during the same period, and the structure and functioning of the main governmental and non-governmental institutions, including the structure of the state itself (unitary or federal), political parties, the judiciary, and the military. Further, the contributors explore several aspects of the political process and political and economic change, especially issues of pluralism and national integration, political economy, corruption and criminalization of politics, radical and violent political movements, and the international politics of the region as a whole.

This unique reference work provides a comprehensive survey of the state of the field and is an invaluable resource for students and academics interested in South Asian Studies, South Asian Politics, Comparative Politics and International Relations.

Review:

"What's not to like in a handbook of South Asian politics edited by someone as respected as Paul Brass and containing contributions from a further 28 of the best-informed scholars of their time?" - Robin Jeffrey, National University of Singapore; Pacific Affairs, 2013.

"Summing Up: Recommended.  Lower-division undergraduate collections and above." - A. Ahmad, CHOICE (June 2011)

"Drawing on contributions from 28 eminent regional experts, the Routledge Handbook of South Asian Politics, now published in paperback, provides a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the main issues confronting contemporary South Asia.[...] The volume successfully manages to capture and outline, with analytical depth, the complexity of South Asia’s puzzling institutional and political developments. Each country’s individual political course is clearly addressed, also in a comparative perspective, from the very first pages. [...] This unique and wide-ranging volume is thus an essential read for students, researchers and practitioners who are interested in deepening their understanding of South Asian dynamics, presenting them with an exhaustive, comprehensive and wellrounded reading."Filippo Boni, University of Nottingham. Political Studies Review: 2015, 13(1)
