LATER STUART TRACTS - 1903 --- NOTE - IT would be incompatible with the plan of this new edition of my friend lrofessor Arbers valuable English Grr-trcr- to interfere in any way with his labours, Ieyoncl classifying the pieces contained in the collection in such a manner as to illustrate more fully the various topics on which they throw so much light. I have therefore contented myself with contributing to this volume an explanatory Introduction, leaving the text and the brief notes of the original edition as I found them. The only exception is the addition of the interesting Preface to the Eig

This book explores the working of democracy in India. Beneath the play of caste and communal politics, and the threats of institutional collapse, the author sees democracy acquiring a firm basis within Indian society. He shows what the voting patterns tell us about the links between regional voices and national unity, between the politics of community and the idea of citizenship, between the commitments of the poor and the apathy of the rich.
