The current wave of liberalization, privatization and globalization sweeping the planet has become the new mantra of growth, prosperity and development the world over. India is falling in line, but in its own typical manner of three steps forward and one step backward. This is but natural and inevitable in a country of continental dimensions and complexities beyond comprehension.
In the wake of the supra-national integration and sub-national disintegration unleashed by the post cold war globalization, New Delhi is faced with the classic dilemma of simultaneously being too small in dealing with the world outside and being too big in dealing with internal challenges. Many other large and multi-religious, multi-ethnic and multi-lingual nation states are in a similar predicament today. Furthermore, the more recent phenomenon of glocalization, ie growing global to sub-national linkages and mushrooming local to local linkage across the seven seas-is reinforcing the ongoing transformation of the architecture of the global power structure.
This book seeks to grapple conceptually with these vital issues from the perspective of Indian and also attempts a broad analysis of how the Indian Nation State is coping with the millennial challenges of jurisdictions and loyalties in flux in the glocalizing world of ours.
