India-the world's largest democracy-boasts an unusually rich and voluminous political literature. These writings offer rare insight into the building of a modern democratic polity in an ancient society. This new collection preserves over 2,000 English-language Indian political pamphlets from the holdings of the Library of Congress. Few libraries in the world hold more than a small portion of this material. Spanning the period from 1915 through the present day, these pamphlets allow researchers and students to trace the development of modern Indian political thought. The material offers rare primary sources on key events and personalities from the early days of the Independence movement to the sovereign Indian republic. Political Pamphlets from the Indian Subcontinent reflects the entire Indian ideological spectrum. The collection features publications of mainstream and fringe political parties, the central and state governments, and a wide range of special interest groups. It includes polemical tracts, policy statements, ideological manifestos, propaganda, and many other materials. This convenient collection opens new avenues of research for students and faculty in a wide range of disciplines. It will prove invaluable to anyone studying modern Indian history, politics, and society, British colonial history, or Third World political change.
