Remapping India

Remapping India: New States and their Political Origins by  Louise Tillin  from Oxford University Press (India).

There is widespread consensus today that the constitutional flexibility to alter state boundaries has bolstered the stability of India’s democracy. Yet debates persist about whether more states should be created. Political parties, regional movements and local activists continue to demand new states in different parts of the country, as part of their attempts to reshape political and economic arenas.

Remapping India looks at the episode of state creation in 2000, when the states of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Uttarakhand came into being in some of the poorest, yet resource-rich, regions of Hindi-speaking north and central India. Their creation represented a new turn in the history of territorial organisation in India. This book explains the politics that lay behind this episode of ‘post-linguistic’ state reorganisation, and what it means for the future design of India’s federal system.
