Document
Combining theoretical and empirical insights, this book provides an in-depth analysis of South Asia's transition in the areas of democracy, political economy and security since the end of the Cold War. It provides a close scrutiny to the state of democracy and political economy in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Developments in South Asia in the areas of democracy, political economy and security in the post-Cold war era are intriguing and raise questions about whether the region is on the road to a transformation. Combining theoretical insights and empirical analysis on the region's post-Cold War dynamics, Bhumitra Chakma investigates whether South Asia is moving from being a space of conflict to one of cooperation and peace. He scrutinizes the state of democracy and political economy in three major states - India, Pakistan and Bangladesh - and examines several key issue areas, including nuclear weapons, the Afghan war, human security, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation and India-Pakistan relations
A significant volume that covers the key dimensions of South Asia's development by locating challenges at institutional and political economic dimensions and most importantly their linkages to security at inter, intra and human security levels. It offers a good set of chapters that link theory and policy successfully. - T.V. Paul, James McGill Professor of International Relations, McGill University, USA Bhumitra Chakma's edited volume grapples with the complex realities of the region by elucidating the interconnection between democracy, political economy and security, going into the nitty-gritty of each of the processes. This book is a valuable addition to the literature on South Asian affairs and will immensely help students, scholars and all those who are interested to know more about this dynamic region called South Asia.' - Partha S. Ghose, former Professor of South Asian Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University,India Change is afoot throughout South Asia, and the rest of the world had best take note. This nuanced, subtle study explores both the sweep and the limitations of those changes. No serious analyst of 21st century international politics should miss this book. - Robert Hathaway, Director of the Asia Programme, Woodrow Wilson International Centre for Scholars, USA
