Grassroot Politics in India
The modern politics began in India around the last quarter of nineteenth century. The process of social and political awakening that gave rise to this new style of politics developed uneven rates and degrees in different communities and regions. However, following independence and with the introduction of electoral politics, a more intimate urban-rural interaction and attendant friction as well as integration began which modelled itself to reconciliatory politics with planned economic development and gradual social change. In such a development the rise of rural elements was much more rapid in politics than in education, administration and urban industrial economy. This trend of gradual ruralisation of politics has become manifest in recent years. Politics by leadership is a universal trend but the nature of emerging rural leadership lies at the root of democratic experiment, development prospects and direction of change. In such a situation a reconciliation with traditional social structure is vital to grassroots politics. The present volume on grassroots politics in India by Sumita Mishra tries to address to the problems narrated above. A useful book recommended for the scholars and students of Political Science in general and grassroots politics in particular.
