Democracy and Authoritarianism in South Asia, A Comparative and Historical Perspective

$30.00

Challenging the view that a shared colonial legacy led to contrasting patterns of political development in South Asia–democracy in India and authoritarianism in Pakistan and Bangladesh–Ayesha Jalal argues that, despite differences in form, central political authority in each state has confronted similar threats from ethnic and regional movements. By comparing state structures and political processes, the author evaluates and redefines democracy, citizenship, sovereignty and the nation state, arguing for more decentralized government.
