by Mahendra Prasad Singh and Subhendu Ranjan Singh


Any discussion on India's politics has to grapple with the many mind-boggling facets that emerge from its constitutional-institutional structure and the dynamics of its local identities. In this light, The Indian Political System lucidly explains the many complexities of the political system in India and carefully covers all the essential themes within this subject. The book begins by explaining the various ideological perspectives underlying the Indian state and various facets of social and institutional power structures. This is followed by exhaustive discussions on the Indian Constitution, on secularism and communalism and on strategies of development. An important section of the book is devoted to the examination of the various movements that have played a crucial role in shaping Indian politics. Both the fundamentals of and the evolving pressures and demands on the Indian State are explained through these chapters. Another section compares the Indian political system with those of Canada, United Kingdoms and China. Various aspects such as federalism and human rights have been discussed clearly and comprehensively in this section. The Indian Political System will provide undergraduate students of political science with an enriching, holistic and yet clear insight into Indian politics.
