This is an encyclopaedic book with a gripping account of contemporary politics in India….the book is a pioneering effort for its distinct style, depth of analysis and open-ended inferences. The authors deserve to be complimented for presenting a complex subject in a serious and professional manner. It is a must-read for all those interested in the contemporary history of India.
The book is a racy read and all the events of the last few decades have been faithfully chronicled.
The book is not a dry academic treatise, but a very readable, informative account, which stands out for its blunt assessment of the leading personalities of the Indian political scene, particularly those who are currently at the helm of affairs.
This is an encyclopaedic book with a gripping account of contemporary politics of India. It is a comprehensive and objective analysis of political parties in pursuit of power and the games they play in that process. The book unfolds several myths about parties, policies, polls and delineates the undercurrents. No analysis of ongoing politics in India could claim ` definitive answers`. The authors restrain from such a trap.
This is a remarkable book on the durability of coalition governments to which the Indian polity is destined for the next few decades, according to the authors who are both second- generation scholars and gifted journalists.
Dismissing the notion of bi-polarity, and resting the debate on whether coalition governments are at best a necessary evil or are better than single-party governments. Challenging many widely held views on the Indian political process, this book is a must read for anyone interested in contemporary Indian politics at the beginning of the 21st century.
The book helps one to understand the dynamics of tele-evangelism and explains why it is nothing but fundamentalism.
