Politics in India : structure, process and policy by Subrata Kumar Mitra( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive analysis of the broad spectrum of India's politics, the book explains the key feature of Indian politics in a comparative and accessible narrative, illustrated with relevant maps, life stories, statistics and opinion data. Using familiar concepts of comparative politics the book highlights the policy process, with a focus on anti-poverty measures, liberalisation of the economy, nuclearisation and relations with the United States and Asian neighbours such as Pakistan and China. While managing to introduce the novice to India, this accessible, genuinely comparative account of India's political evolution also engages the expert in a deep contemplation of the nature of strategic manoeuvring within India's domestic and international context
Subnational movements in South Asia by Subrata Kumar Mitra( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

However, this book presents subnationalism not as a culturally specific phenomenon but as a politically convenient self-classification, used as an instrument of identity, mobilization, power, and counter-hegemony by political actors. Drawing on detailed analyses of seven South Asian cases - Kashmir, Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan, Assam, Tamilnadu, and Sri Lanka - the contributors move beyond sociological and economic explanations of the origin and evolution of South Asian subnationalism to formulate a political explanation based on theories of cultural nationalism and collective action

The puzzle of India's governance : culture, context, and comparative theory by Subrata Kumar Mitra( Book )

Democracy and social change in India : a cross-sectional analysis of the national electorate by Subrata Kumar Mitra( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors succeed in presenting very detailed findings from a post-election study of the electorate using a theoretical approach that accounts for the most worrying phenomena in contemporary Indian politics' - John Hickman, Contemporary South Asia Drawing on a 1996 nationwide post-election survey of 10,000 people, this book analyzes the process and progress of democratization in India. It begins with a discussion of some of the major schools of thought in the area of social change. This is followed by a description of the survey findings on how Indians view their state, how they judge those who govern them and how they understand their society. The authors provide an important analysis of the findings, providing answers to questions such as: - are there generational differences in the views expressed? - does the rhetoric of regionalization find resonance in the views of the people surveyed? - is India truly a nation or merely an accidental geographical assemblage of separate communities? Using innovative statistical analysis, the authors explore the relative success of Indian democracy in coping with the processes of modernization and social change

12 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Rebels Become Stakeholders: Democracy, Agency and Social Change in India explores the agency of ordinary men and women in the making of democratic social change in India. The study is specific to India, but the issues that it examines are of wider significance. The authors join the debate on democracy and development on the basis of case studies that showcase the opinions and attitudes of the Indian voter. They assert that mass perception of institutions, policies and processes-so often dismissed as mere false consciousness or as the conditioned reflex of a gullible public, manipulated by

Re-use : the art and politics of integration and anxiety by Subrata Kumar Mitra( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented here is a novel approach to understanding the relationship between the past and the present using the unique concept of re-use, wherein elements from the past are strategically adapted into the present, and thus become part of a new modernity. The book uses this method as a heuristic tool for analysing and interpreting cultural and political changes and the transnational flow of ideas, concepts and objects. The chapters apply this concept to South Asia but the concept of re-use and the method of its application are both general and amenable to cross-cultural and comparative analysis

Comprising the states of Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives, South Asia has gained considerable international visibility over the past decade.
