RecDemocracy and Authoritarianism in South Asia By Ayesha Jalal. In a comparative and historical study of the interplaybetween democratic politics and authoritarian states in South Asia, Ayesha Jalal explains how a shared colonial legacy led to apparently contrasting patterns of political development – democracy in India and authoritarianism in Pakistan and Bangladesh. The analysis shows how, despite differences in form, central political authority in each state came to confront similar threats from regional and linguistic dissidence, religious and sectarian strife, as well as class and caste conflicts. By comparing state structures and political processes, the author evaluates and redefines democracy, citizenship, sovereignty and the nation-state, arguing for a more decentralized governmental structure. This original and provocative study will challenge students and scholars in the field to rethink traditional concepts of democracy and authoritarianism in South Asia.

  • Pioneering study comparing the development of post-colonial Asia
  • An interdisciplinary approach which should appeal to historians, political scientists, South Asianists
  • Jalal is a previous press author with a substantial reputation in her field
