Reviews for The Government and Politics of India (Comparative Government and Politics)
'...[A] mainstream political science text...[and] a useful reference book...[which] confronts and challenges the generalised sterotypes which structure the outsider's vision of India...For anyone interested in both the formal structures and complex nuances of contemporary Indian politics this is a welcome addition to the existing literature.' - Kate Currie, Journal of Contemporary Asia
