Political science & theory

Politics of Nation Building in IndiaNationhood is about power. It is the staple of political theory. Two outstanding Indians - who, respectively, witnessed England's capture of power in India and laid down an ethical strategy for fighting her rule - form the subjects of two essays. The play of power in the Indian constitution with judiciary in focus is the theme of two articles but underwrites the parameters of several essays on nation building and its ethno-cultural constraints from a global and historical perspective. The federal structure of the state, regionalism, secularism and communalism, and the minority problem of different hues are critically examined. The contemporary tribal movements, urban tensions and communal conflicts are analysed with statistical data. One essay explores the historical and geographical context of India's relationship with her neighbours.
