Summary:
The first systematic study of Indira Gandhi's final term in office as India's Prime Minister (1980-84), an important period in the country's recent history when some of the defining features of today's India's political system emerged. The book argues that the early 1980s were a period of uncompromising change, particularly in three key areas: the liberalisation of the economy; the emergence of new forms of political mobilisation; and the increasingly regionalised polity, with the states becoming crucial actors in India's political system.
