Overview

Caste and Democratic Politics in India by Ghanshyam Shah, GHANSHYAM SHAH

The Indian constitution seeks to prevent the perpetuation of caste and build a casteless social system. But this has not happened over the fifty-odd years since Indian independence, and shows little sign of happening in the near future. Therefore no understanding of Indian politics is possible without a thorough understanding of the complexities of caste. The aim of this book is to bring about such an understanding. This volume offers state-of-the-art essays on the subject of caste and politics in contemporary India. It covers all the important grounds that students and scholars need in order to get to grips with the idea, ideology, and ground realities of India’s caste system.
