POL 348 - Politics Ldrshp Mod South Asia


An introduction to the politics and leadership of modern South Asia. The course focuses, in particular, although not exclusively on the first half of the twentieth century, although it may be necessary to go back to at least the mid-1850’s to put in context the period from British colonial rule to the struggle for independence, and the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947. The primary focus is partition, independence, and the two-state solution; all of which are critical to understanding the current state and politics of the subcontinent today.
