A Time of Coalitions: Divided We Stand
SAGE Publications, May 25, 2004 - Business & Economics - 413 pages
"This topical book, written by two eminent journalists, convincingly argues against two commonly held beliefs concerning Indian politics. Their basic premise is that India has come a long way from the time when a single party, the Congress, dominated our polity. Instead, it has given way to multi-party configurations or coalitions which, they demonstrate, are neither temporary nor an aberration - coalitions are here to stay, they say, at least in the foreseeable future. Second, they expertly dismiss the view that India's polity is essentially bipolar, led by either of the two largest parties - the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress party - and that other political parties have no option but to choose which of these two they will align themselves with."--BOOK JACKET.
