Political Violence and the Police in India

K S Subramanian,

Political Violence and the Police in India
 
 
Increasing political violence in India is challenging the government’s ability
to resolve conflicts democratically. In this topical book, K S Subramanian:

- identifies patterns and trends in political violence in India;

- examines how the government’s political machinery has responded;

- explains why State response has been inadequate; and

- recommends changes in structures and attitudes.

The author sketches the growing crisis of governance by assessing the Central
and state governments’ police organisations, especially key central agencies
such as the Intelligence Bureau, the Central Paramilitary Forces and the Union
Ministry of Home Affairs. In case studies of regions and communities affected
by political violence, he takes the reader behind the scenes—whether it
is on police partisanship in the communal pogrom in Gujarat, the official approach
to the Naxalite problem, the violence against dalits and adivasis, or the violation
of human rights in northeast India.


With police reform being a major public concern, police research is gaining
importance as a field of study. This book will appeal to students of criminal
justice, political science, sociology, public policy and public administration,
as well as policy makers, police and administrative officers, and human rights
activists.
