This lucid book offers a sobering reminder of the defciencies of India’s political regime and highlights the limits of poor people’s opposition to the state power. Through critically interrogating the nature and extent of subaltern agency in India, Gudavarthy offers a provocative set of arguments about India’s ‘violent democracy’.
We possess a large body of literature on the triumphs of Indian democracy, on the success story of globalisation and on violence, whether episodic or organised. Yet studies of these three concepts tend to wend their own analytical way with little prospect of intersection. This book comes as a breath of fresh air because it brings out the intricate relationship between democracy, globalisation and Maoism in fine detail. Congratulations to the author for this remarkable achievement.
