McLeod theorizes the levels and culture of violence between India and Pakistan since partition and independence in 1947. Despite a voluminous output of political and, in particular, historical accounts of this extraordinary and unique relationship in international politics, there has been little attempt to theorize the culture of violence between these two states. As a consequence, the study of India-Pakistan relations suffers from what the author labels historical reiteration. That is, the dispute is historicized in a way that reproduces the preconceived division of 1947. This approach, at best does nothing to enhance our understanding of relations and at worst, actually serves to further entrench rivalry and hostility. This book moves the debate away from historical reiteration and instead theorizes the nature and culture of violence between these two states and asks, are India and Pakistan rivals or enemies?

"A brilliant text; superbly organized in terms of the complex subject matter, very perceptive and wonderfully clearly written. Quite the best book on political ideas available." - Bill Jones ‘Political Theory is a lucid and highly engaging introduction to political theory. Heywood covers a large range of ideas and issues and he is particularly good at taking a synoptic view of these and making them accessible for those coming to political theory for the first time. No matter how high the ideal or how abstract the concept, he never fails to make it intelligible and to illustrate its relevance for the real world of politics." - Peter Jones, University of Newcastle "Here is a marvellous introductory tour through the territory of political theory… Heywood has charted the area so clearly and matched his lucid thinking with such accessible prose that his guided tour is a tour de force, an ideal primer for new students of politics at both advanced and university level." - Jessica Sarago, Times Educational Supplement This is a fascinating and highly informative text which is clearly organized and written with wonderful clarity. Heywood conveys not only his undoubted expertise but also his enthusiasm for the subject… at 400 pages, it represents excellent value for money" - Peter Dorey, Talking Politics This fully revised and updated fourth edition of a highly successful text in its field on how these have been used by different thinkers and schools of thought. The book systematically builds understanding of both classical and contemporary theory by reviewing a wide range of major thinkers, from Aristotle, Rousseau, Marx and Mill to the present day.

About the Book The present book titled Bihar: Untold Growth Story is, in a sense, a treaties on socio-economy of Bihar highlighting the states glorious, remote and immediate past with the present terrible economic position indicating things to come in the state suggesting several measures towards realizing the goal of economic and social accomplishment. The book has taken care of the latest issues tormenting the state authorities and the economist pertaining to rural and urban poverty, migration of Bihari labour force, corruption and criminalisation proving to be a stumbling block in development as also the debated aspect of improving the states financial position by way of special package or special status. The book though highlights achievements of the state, brings out the myths of these, laying down that the development process is characterized by truths and half truth very boldly observing and finally suggesting that accomplishment is not the same thing as achievements, nor is the fact that what is apparent is real.

About the Book :- Political Analysis offers both a lively and accessible introduction to key issues in political science and a distinctive and original contribution in its own right to political analysis. Drawing on a wide range of examples from politics and international relations, it provides a sustained and systematic introduction to the analysis of political structures, institutions, ideas and behaviour, and above all to the political processes through which they are constantly made and remade. Following an introductory overview of the main approaches and concepts in contemporary political analysis, the text focuses on a set of central issues and debates that concern and divide political analysts. These include: the boundaries of the political; the question of structure, agency and power; approaches to the study of political change in modern societies; the relative significance of ideas and material factors; and the challenge posed by postmodernism which- the author argues- the discipline can strengthen itself by addressing without allowing it to become a recipe for paralysis. Written in an engaging style and deploying well-chosen examples and original charts and diagrams throughout, the book will provide essential reading for students of political science and international relations. Contents :- List of Figures, Tables and Boxes Preface and Acknowledgements 1. Analytical Perspectives, Analytical Controversies 2. What's Political about Political Science? 3. Beyond Structure versus Agency: Context versus Conduct 4. Continuity and Discontinuity in the Analysis of Political Change 5. Divided by a Common Language? Conceptualizing Power 6.

B.N.Ghosh, Eastern Mediterranean University, North Cyprus and Director (Hon.), Centre for the Study of Human Development, Leeds (UK). This book identifies and analyses the political economy elements in Gandhi's thought, evaluating the spiritual and ontological basis of Gandhian political economy, and examing the contemporary relevance of Gandhian Political economy both in terms of alternative types of heterodox political economy and in terms of policy.

He brilliantly examines Gandhian methodology and further themes on inequality, justice, conflict resolution, the role of government, industrialization, and the reasons for development and underdevelopment. This is a must read for those who wish to know how Gandhi's thought can be applied to contemporary political economy perspective on the world. Professor Phillip O'Hara, Curtin University of Technology, Australia. I do not know of any other work on Gandhi's economic thought that is remotely comparable to Professor Ghosh's book in its depth and range. It fills an important gap in the Gandhian literature and should encourage economists to pay closer attention to the epistemological, moral and other presuppositions of their discipline. Professor Bhikhu Parekh, University of Hull, UK Professor Ghosh's new book on Gandhi's pioneering contributions is a major work that is both timely and highly relevant to meeting contemporary challenges of development studies. It is amazing how refreshing Gandhi's thinking remains after more than half a century. The book deserves to be read widely.

About the Book There is today, as never before, a need to change the prevailing understanding of relationship between governance and administrative reforms, and not to look at it by the differences—in approach and content. Such an approach need not be a delimiting exercise but a help to actualise the emergence of a well administered, responsive state. While India is increasingly recognised as an emerging economic power, its administrative underpinnings are often perceived as weak, fragile with a limited vision, encumbered by a load of irreversible—so it seems—procedures and practices. All these perceptions reflect on the capacity for efficient and effective governance to perform beyond the transcription of issues appearing in office notes and files. This book attempts a brief profiling of interrelated but often ignored issues in which everyone in the operating administrative system in government seems inextricably linked. Contents 1. Jawaharlal Nehru and his Vision of Governance 2. Governance and Civil Society: Exploring the Relationship 3. Administrative Reforms: An Unending Quest 4.

"The Parchment of Kashmir is an impressively and suitably intricate representation of literate cultures in Kashmir. It is also the best available mosaic portrait of vibrant multilingual intellectualism and multicultural heritage in any region of Asia. It beautifully conveys the complexity of Kashmir's human composition at a crossroads of civilization and thus provides a supple foundation for subtle understandings of Kashmir's current political predicament." - David Ludden, professor of History, New York University "The Parchment of Kashmir is an important and timely book. By bringing together writers, scholars and other intellectuals in Kashmir to speak about the history, politics, culture and their lived experiences of the region, Nyla Ali Khan gives us a sense of the complexity of the 'Kashmir problem' from the perspective of those most deeply affected by it. The essays in this volume are invaluable as both analysis and testimony." - Rajeswari Sunder Rajan, Global Distinguished Professor, New York University In this volume, Kashmiri scholars of all disciplines undertake a new look at their homeland. Taking account of both mainstream ideologies and contrary discourses, the authors provide a set of visions for Kashmiri culture and society. The authors underline the repercussions of India's anti-democratic strategies, delineate the fundamental structural inequities in the Jammu & Kashmir polity, and analyze the effects of nationalist, militant and religious discourses and praxes on a gender-based social hierarchy. The book offers a panorama of key cultural concerns of Jammu & Kashmir today, from the military aspects of the Kashmir conflict to the modern-day revival of indigenous cultural institutions.
