GOVT133 CM - India in Asia: Democracy and Development in India, China, and Pakistan

This course introduces students to the history and politics of countries in South Asia in a comparative framework. Despite the recent increased international attention to the countries of the region, South Asia continues to puzzle scholars, policymakers, and journalists alike.  The so-called “problems” endemic to the countries in South Asia – the tendency to use violence to resolve conflicts, potential of nuclear conflict, and radical political change – must be placed within the domestic, historical, and international context of the various countries in the region.
