Beschreibung

This book presents numerous discussions of specific aspects of democratic politics, showing how 'democracy' can be projected as a model of deliberate imperfection - a model that tolerates various loose ends in the system - and how democracy recognizes a multiplicity of possible courses open to the system at any point in time. Against this backdrop, the book carefully analyzes the lifetime work of D.L. Sheth, which, seen as a whole, offers us with a theory of Indian politics.

The selection of fifteen essays has been clustered into five sections that signify the major domains of democratic politics: State, Nation, Democracy; Parapolitics of Democracy; Social Power and Democracy; Representation in Liberal Democracy; and Emerging Challenges of Democracy. These essays give a sense of the transformations and struggles that are underway in India, brought about by the dynamics of democratic politics. Each of the fifteen chapters focuses on one aspect, providing a unique analysis of the deepening of democracy in India.



Essays by 
Professor D.L. Sheth, Honorary Senior Fellow, Former Member National Commission for Backward Classes, Former National Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Centre For the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS).

Compiled and Edited by
Professor Peter Ronald deSouza, Former Director Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Former Dr. S. Radhakrishnan Chair of the Rajya Sabha.
