Citizenship and Its Discontents

Front Cover
Harvard University Press, Feb 15, 2013 - Political Science - 346 pages
This book considers how the civic ideals embodied in India’s constitution are undermined by exclusions based on social and economic inequalities, sometimes even by its own strategies of inclusion. Once seen by Westerners as a political anomaly, India today is the case study that no global discussion of democracy and citizenship can ignore.
