About this book

This is a study of how ethnic diversity is represented in public institutions in India, and how politics manages ethnic inequalities. New data on representational patterns in parliament cover the diversity of caste, tribe and religion. Material disadvantage is central to ethnic and cultural inequality as social and economic inequalities overlap.
