About this item
Sanjay Ruparelia confronts one of the most striking developments in modern Indian politics: the increasing influence of communist, regional, and lower caste-oriented socialist parties on politics since the late 1980s. He traces these parties' attempts to construct a progressive third force vis-a-vis the historically dominant Indian National Congress and Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and the subsequent decline of the broader Indian left as a collective political power. Ruparelia develops an original theoretical argument, deploying an innovative conceptual grammar of institutions, power, and judgment to explain the vicissitudes of the contemporary Indian left over the past two decades. Methodologically, Divided We Govern is a fine-grained analytic narrative of the vicissitudes of power-sharing in contemporary Indian democracy. It utilizes a variety of tools and resources to create a dynamic causal account of multiparty governments and their function -- only partly captured by many scholarly analyses and the theories on which they rely.Ruparelia's narrative draws on information gathered from newspapers, periodicals, party manifestoes, and government documents; original statistical analyses of official electoral data and national election surveys; and the rare testimonies of senior party leaders, high-ranking government officials, and seasoned political journalists, obtained through dozens of, in-depth interviews and intensive fieldwork.
