Editorial Reviews

South Asia Multidisciplinary Academic Journal
It is a stimulating work, quantitatively ambitious, and at the same time attempting to accommodate space for the opinions and values of ordinary people.

The Businessworld
The authors must get full marks for trying their best for a remarkably comprehensive exposition of the complexity of Indian democracy from the CSDS survey findings.

Business India
The book is a celebration of political skills of India’s voters and their leadership….. Thematically, this book is, perhaps, the first of its kind and that adds to its significance as well as importance, especially for students of Indian democracy and of comparative politics.

Development Alternatives
Opinions, attitudes and values of ordinary people form the basis of this book. When Rebels Become Stake Holders has been written keeping in mind the students of Indian democracy, as also of comparative politics. This book will be of interest to researchers and scholars of political science, international relations, democracy, Indian politics, political analysis, sociology, development studies, journalism, comparative politics and public administration.

The Book Review
When Rebels Become Stakeholders explores the agency of ordinary men and women in the making of democratic and orderly social change in India…Drawing on the rich empirical base of the national surveys, the volume provides the missing links in terms of the casual link that ‘transforms rebels into stakeholders’.
