‘This volume fills an important gap in both the literature on Indian political economy, as well as in the broader study of electoral finance. The book should be read both by scholars and policymakers interested in the role money plays in the world’s largest democracy.’ —Atul Kohli, David K.E. Bruce Professor of International Affairs, Princeton University, USA.
‘One of the vital challenges in India and around the world is curbing the corrosive role of money in politics. This study, by a distinguished team of contributors, provides new insights into campaign finance in India, the world’s most populous democracy and how regulations could be reformed. The research will be of widespread interest for scholars of elections, corruption and political reform.’ —Pippa Norris, Paul F. McGuire Lecturer in Comparative Politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, USA, Laureate Professor of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney, Australia and founding Director of the Electoral Integrity Project.
‘Democracy doesn’t come cheap. Its cost is tremendous and rising. Unfortunately, the role of money in politics has lately assumed pernicious dimensions. It is no consolation that India is not alone facing this problem. This timely book is not only the first of its kind for India but also a rare contribution to the broader comparative literature.’ —S.Y. Quraishi, former Chief Election Commissioner of India.
