Democracy and Violence in India

India: Democracy and Violence edited by Samir Kumar Das; OUP, 2015; pp i-viii+258, 995.

This book is the outcome of two workshops held in 2011, the first in Delhi on 19–20 March, the second in Shimla on 26–28 September. Both were on the theme of “Collective Action and Violence in Postcolonial Democracy” by the Mahanirban Calcutta Research Group and the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies (IIAS), Shimla respectively. The purpose was a more claimant-centred and dialogical understanding of the violence inherent in the emancipatory politics of postcolonial democracy (p vii).
