 Article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
As per the ‘conventional wisdom’ on the subject, much of India’s contemporary ethnic conflict was a consequence of “political perversion: that is, the decline of Nehruvian values identified in post-Nehruvian processes of centralisation, deinstitutionalisation, and political decay” (p 39).
