Mobilizing the Marginalized

Ethnic Parties without Ethnic Movements

Amit Ahuja

Modern South Asia

  • Explores how the parties chosen by the caste once known as untouchables (Dalits) do in elections and explains the inconsistencies of their success and failures
  • Offers insight into the incomplete, but irreversible change in Indian society and politics that mobilized some of the most marginalized citizens in the world and counts as one of the most significant achievements of Indian democracy
  • Develops a new theory on the often orthogonal relationship between social and political mobilization
