Description:

This comprehensive but accessible text provides students with a systematic introduction to the comparative political study of the leading nations of South Asia: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Nepal. The seventh edition is extensively revised and updated, benefiting from the fresh perspectives brought on by adding Ahrar Ahmad to the author team. New material includes discussions of political parties and leaders in India; the Zardari regime in Pakistan and changes to the Pakistani constitution; the rocky relationship between Pakistan and the Obama administration; new prospects and dangers facing Bangladesh; continuing political violence in Sri Lanka after the end of its civil war; and the troubles facing Nepal as it attempts to draft a new constitution. Organized in parallel fashion to facilitate cross-national comparison, the sections on each nation address several topical areas of inquiry: political culture and heritage, government structure and institutions, political parties and leaders, conflict and resolution, and modernization and development. A statistical appendix provides a concise overview of leading demographic and economic indicators for each country, making Government and Politics in South Asia an invaluable addition to courses on the politics of South Asia.
