Book Description:

This concise comprehensive study of the major political, cultural and economic changes and crises in India during the past forty-five years focuses on the consequences of the centralizing drives and tendencies of the national leadership to create a strong state, unified nation and dynamic economy.

From the Back Cover:

The crisis in India has intensified, revealing itself in secessionist movements and in increased inter-castle conflicts. The country has witnessed the rise of Hindu nationaflilsm and the worst communal massacres since Independence following the destruction of the mosque in Ayodhya. The issue before the country now is whether or not it can find within its own traditions and moral and material resources the leadership to restore a political and communal balance in state and society.
