Summary
Several scholars have written about how authoritarian or democratic political systems affect industrialization in the developing countries. There is no literature, however, on whether or not democracy makes a difference to the power and well-being of the countryside. Through the example of India, which enjoys the longest-surviving democracy of the developing world, this book investigates how the countryside uses the political system to advance its interests
