A seminal work on electoral politics in India. An eminent scholar on electoral politics of India, Dr. Raja Sekhar Vundru expounds upon the genesis of our current political system. He defines various political systems found all over the world and goes into exceptionally minute details into why and how India adopted a particular model of political representation. Featuring never-before-heard conversations between Ambedkar and Gandhi, the author examines the deliberations between the two towering figures of India, and delves into the role of Patel as an agent of influence. The book provides a great insight into a hackneyed topic and makes one reconsider existing notions about our Founding Fathers. Whether you are a student of politics, a researcher, or an avid reader, this book will broaden your knowledge about diverse India's exceptionally representative electoral system and how it came into being.
