Abstract

The research in this edited volume analyses central questions in South Asian politics. It identifies new, emerging areas of research. The book entails both general political theory and context-specific case studies. The research combines area-specific expertise with theory-driven, generalizable insights.

It is a homage to Subrata K. Mitra, the eminent political scientist and scholar of South Asia. It showcases the work of his mentors, colleagues and friends – all leading academics:
