Democracy, Development and Discontent in South Asia

Veena Kukreja,

Democracy, Development and Discontent in South Asia
 
 
This book deals with the issues of democracy, development and discontent in the general context of South Asia and the specific contexts of the major countries of the region. Major challenges confronting democracy and development in South Asia—including the interface between multicultural identity, democracy and development in India; movement for the restoration of democracy in Pakistan; and the Maoist movement and its democratic accommodation in Nepal—are part of the detailed discussions in the book.

Democracy, Development and Discontent in South Asia comprises latest analysis of data by well known scholars in the field, clear conceptualization, and fresh theoretical organization and interpretation. The parameters for the analyses include ethnicity, multiculturalism, democracy and authoritarianism, economic reforms, armed rebellion and movement for democracy, peace through confidence building measures, trade and development, and federal pressures—constitutional and devolutionary—in these countries.

This book would greatly interest students and academicians in the field of South Asian Studies, Pakistan Studies, International Relations, Comparative Politics, Political Sociology, Development Studies and Journalism.
