Democracy in India Summary


Democracy in India by Niraja Gopal Jayal (Professor, Centre for the Study of Law and Governance, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi)

This volume-in the Themes in Politics series-brings together the finest scholarly writings on several dimensions of Indias democracy. It analyses Indias experiment with democracy and its successes and failures. It also situates Indian democracy in the context of the basic principles of democratic theory as well as contemporary debates about the relationship of democracy with civil society, cultural diversity, and development. The volume addresses the crucial concern as to whether the state has contributed to the decline of democracy or whether democratic politics has undermined the states capability to govern the city. It discusses Indias unique experience of negotiating cultural diversity through democratic institutional mechanisms.
