Politics and Internal Security

Rated 3/5 based on 1 customer reviews


Description :

In the fast changing socio-political equations of contemporary India, identities are constantly evolving along social and economic lines. Policing a complex socio-economic and political matrix of such a large country is bound to be complicated. This is more so on account of the fact that Indian policing has inherited a colonial model, and the horrors of the partition have made its Constitutional framework highly security conscious. And though policing is a state subject, the Union government is often involved in both, emergency as well as day-to-day policing.


The policing function of the state thus takes on a political hue as the conflict between ethnic communities, religious groups and the caste groups escalate. The author, Amit Prakash uses the case study of the deployment of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and he political process in Uttar Pradesh to highlight these inter-linkages.
