Debating Difference | 1st Edition | Book
Author : Rochana Bajpai
India is an outstanding example of multiculturalism, with wide-ranging policies of group preference dating back to the colonial period. This book presents the first systematic account of the structure of public reasoning over group rights primarily focusing on the landmark constitutional and legislative debates in the late 1940s and late 1980s. While the former saw a centralization of power, the latter marked a decentering of power in the Indian polity.
