ABOUT THE BOOK

South Asia-State, Society and Development is a landmark volume combining engaged and informed discourse with sharp academic precision. It is a work of principled scholarship which provides varied perspectives on South Asia's political, governance and development situation. The beauty of the compendium lies in capturing unique experiences of teaching a group of local and SAARC students at Kashmir university during (2013-2016) and making a bold statement about potential and availability of soft power in the region to build bridges of peace and understanding in South Asia.
