Book Description:

The revised edition of Robert Stern's book brings India's story up to date. Since its original publication, much has altered and yet central to the author's argument remains his belief in the remarkable continuity of India's institutions. This is a comprehensive introduction to modern India in which the author explains its caste and class systems, its venerable faiths and extraordinary ethnic diversity, its imperial past and its post-Independence contribution to the global economy. While paradoxes abound, Stern demonstrates why India remains the most enduring democracy in the developing world.
