Abstract Analyses state-society relations in India. Includes the changes in India's political institutions (leadership, political parties, and the armed forces) and focuses on the relation between the state and the ethnic activism. Also explores the shifts to the political role of social groups and to the contribution that India's important castes and classes make to the political process.
