about

This collection of essays takes an in-depth and analytical look at India and its neighbourhood against a brief historical backdrop of each country and addresses the vital question of whether these political developments served as markers of substantial political change regardingconstitutionalism, democracy, secularism, human rights, and human development in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. It explores whether such political events of great magnitude had changed only political dispensations in these countries or have they actually inspired new political discourse and created a new vision among the political class. How had the people responded to these changes and the new situationstriggered by them? This volume will provide a holistic view of the region while focusing on politics and political culture of each neighbouring country.
Maneesha Tikekar is Head of the Department of Politics at SIES College of Arts, Science and Commerce in Mumbai, India.
