Electoral Politics In Indian States
Lok Sabha Elections in 2004 and Beyond

The present volume aims to understand the dynamics of electoral politics in the Indian states. The site for this study was the Lok Sabha elections held in 2004. Then point of departure for this volume is the growing academic and popular wisdom that national elections in India cannot be understood without placing them in the context of the specificities of state politics.

Using electoral politics as a ‘moment’ for analysing the wider politics of the states, this volume has in-depth essays on 19 states. It also has three general essays that provide the context of the analysis of state politics in India. The appendix to this volume, ‘National Election Study 2024: A methodological Note’, spells out the details of the NES tradition in general and NES 2004 in particular. ( Buy Now )
