From Google Books: "In this volume, one of India's foremost political scientists offers a richly detailed and critical analysis of Indian politics in the fifty years since independence. Using a variety of genres--essays, book reviews, commentaries and journal entries--Partha Chatterjee scans the entire period from the Nehru era through the through the regimes of Indira and Rajiv Gandhi to the present. He attempts to develop a true perspective on democracy in India, not in the cliche-ridden sense of government of, by, and for the people, but as politics of the governed."
