India: The Years of Indira Gandhi
Journal of Asian and African Studies
Admired by her supporters and criticized by her opponents, Indira Gandhi presided over the most eventful years of politics in an independent India. During her regime, India made an impressive technological and industrial breakthrough, achieved self-sufficiency in food production and entered a period of social revolution. Despite the impressive achievements of her regime, these critical years also witnessed increased polarization within society and an unprecedented increase in social violence leading to an enhancement of the repressive capabilities of the state. © 1987, BRILL.
