Ahuja, M.L. (1998): Electoral Politics and General Elections in India [1952-1998]. Mittal Publications, New Delhi (412 pag).

[ Following the fractured mandate of the 12th General Elections in India in March 1998, the BJP-led government replaced the 13-party coalition of the United Front. But the first 100 days of the Government, which has been in the office on the basis of pre-poll and post-poll alliances, have brought to focus tricky problems it has in the offing. The challenges seem to be tougher than those encountered by the United Front team. This book studies the preceding general elections which took place ever since India became Republic. ]

Akbar, M.J. (2002): Kashmir, Behind the Vale. Lotus Collection/Roli Books, New Delhi (232 pag). (UI-490-021) India; Kashmir-conflict; Jammu & Kashmir; geschiedenis, recent; geschiedenis; grensconflicten; relatie India-Pakistan; Pakistan; geschiedenis, koloniaal.
[ Kashmir lies at the edge of India's borders and at the heart of India's consciousness. It is not geography that is the issue; Kashmir also guards the frontiers of ideology. If there was a glow of hope in the deepening shadows of a bitter Partition, then it was Kashmir, whose people consciously rejected the false patriotism of fundamentalism and made common cause with secular India instead of theocratic Pakistan. Kashmir was a stabilising force for India. Why has that harmony disintegrated? A history of Kashmir's struggle...... ]

Antony, M.J. (2000): Dalit Rights: Landmark Judgements on SC/ST/Backward Classes. Indian Social Institute, New Delhi (132 pag). (UI-133-043) India; kastelozen/dalits; Scheduled Castes and Tribes; reserveringspolitiek; wetgeving; rechtspraak.
[ The special protection given to the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes under the Constitution and some other statutes has been the subject of intense debate since independence. There was always discussion on the unique privileges granted to the depressed classes. The conflicting viewpoints have often led to violence, reaching the peak during the Mandal agitation in the early nineties. This booklet is a compilation of judgements as a reference for basic information about judicial interpretation of the law. ]

Beersmans, Paul (1999): Jammu en Kasjmir: Het Omstreden Paradijs...... Continental Publishing, Antwerpen/Brussel (288 pag). (UI-490-011) India; Kashmir-conflict; Pakistan; Jammu & Kashmir; grensconflicten; relatie India-Pakistan; relatie India-China.
[ Dit boek tracht een objectief inzicht te geven in de politieke en historische aspecten van wat er omgaat in Jammu en Kashmir en de verscheidenheid en complexiteit van de situatie, gezien door de ogen van de Vlaamse auteur die er een jaar geleefd heeft als VN-waarnemer en die meerdere studiereizen ondernam naar dit gebied. Eveneens wordt dieper ingegaan op de moderne geschiedenis van het gebied en de factoren die geleid hebben tot de huidige situatie. Verder worden mogelijke voorstellen tot oplossing aangedragen. ]

Bjorkman, James Warner; Mathur, Kuldeep (2002): Policy, Technocracy and Development: Human Capital Policies in the Netherlands and India. IDPAD/Manohar, New Delhi (169 pag). (UI-441-005) India; beleid overheid; Nederland; onderwijs: beleid overheid; onderwijs, basis-; gezondheidszorg: beleid overheid; gezondheidszorg.
[ This study addresses technocratic factors in policy formulation and implementation by examining Indian and Dutch policies in primary education and primary health for establishing and sustaining human capital. While comparisons between India and the Netherlands may appear to be a mismatch due to substantial differences in levels of socio-economic development, similarities are nevertheless manifest. Both are democratic and parliamentary and the systems of government are not far apart. ]

Dixit, J.N. (2002): India-Pakistan in War and Peace. The India Today Group, New Delhi (501 pag). (UI-472-010) India; relatie India-Pakistan; Pakistan; Kashmir-conflict; wapens/kernwapens.
[ Born at midnight, fated never to see the sunshine of amity. That is the India-Pakistan story. Whether it is Kashmir or the nuclear issue or the cricket field, the two seldom seem to agree. A shared culture has ever divided, never united. The Indo-Pakistan rivalry is a legacy of history. It's roots lie in the Muslim separatist movement of the 1930s and, indeed, can probably be traced back further to th 17th century battle of succession between Dara Shikoh and Aurangzeb. ]

Embree, Ainslie T.; e.a. (1997): 1947-1997 The Kashmir Dispute at Fifty: Charting Paths to Peace. Kashmir Study Group, Larchmont, USA (72 pag). (UI-490-010) Kashmir-conflict; India; Pakistan; relatie India-Pakistan; Jammu & Kashmir; grensconflicten; vredesbeweging; onafhankelijkheidsbewegingen.
[ In the spring of 1997 the Kashmir Study Group, a non-partisan, non-governmental initiative established in 1996 to explore viable means of achieving peace in South Asia, appointed a five-member Study Team to visit the region to engage in an extensive series of talks about the Kashmir dispute with leading individuals from many walks of life and to prepare this report. Contents: Map of Jammu & Kashmir; Indian and Pakistani positions in Kashmir; Siachen Glacier issue; Trade between the countries; Role of the armies; .... ]

Ghosh, Partha S. (2000): BJP and the Evolution of Hindu Nationalism: From Periphery to Centre. Manohar, New Delhi (460 pag). (UI-416-006) India; BJP; nationalisme; Ayodhya; politieke partijen, divers; hindoes; RSS; Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
[ Religion and politics are always interconnected. Recent developments in India marked by the unprecedented rise in religio-centric politics underscore the point. The process is epitomized by the rise of Hindu-chauvinistic BJP to the centre-stage and its subsequent forming a coalition government at the centre with itself as the dominant partner. In a socially and culturally plural India how enduring this phenomenon would be is what this book is all about. It traces the growth of Hindu nationalism from the late 19th century. ]

Iterson, Hans van; Koster, Karel; Konz, Hugo (ed.) (2002): In the Shadow of the Nuclear Threat: A Dialogue between India and Pakistan. NVMP, Utrecht (46 pag). (UI-448-006) India; wapens/kernwapens; Pakistan; vredesbeweging .
[ Report of a public discussion on April 28, 2002 in The Hague. The purpose of this meeting was to create a platform for the Indian and Pakistani peace movements and to start a dialogue between the Indian and Pakistani communities in the Netherlands and the Dutch peace movement. Speakers wre Achin Vanaik, co-founder of the Movement in India for Nuclear Disarmament, and Pervez Hoodbhoy, member of South Asians Against Nukes and professor of nuclear physics in Pakistan. ]

[ Dissertation around the thesis: "The path of the dispute in Kashmir has been effected by the decline of secularism and simultaneous rise of Hindu nationalism in India". The research is focused on secularism and Hindu nationalistic interests from the Indian side in Kashmir. The dissertation can contribute to academic research on the question whether the main theories on nationalism developed in Europe are applicable in Asian cases. ]

Kanungo, Pralay (2002): RSS's Tryst with Politics: From Hedgewar to Sudarshan. Manohar, Delhi (314 pag). (UI-421-004) India; RSS; politieke bewegingen; Vishwa Hindu Parishad; hindoes.
[ The RSS is perhaps the most controversial organization in contemporary India. This book explores the mission, method and motive of the RSS and suggests that the ideological core of the RSS - Hindu Rashtra - is political and not cultural. It argues that K.B. Hedgewar, the founder of the RSS, had a clear political mission, while M.S. Golwalkar, his successor, despite his saintly appearance and overt distaste for 'politics', sharpened and amplified its ideology. Nevertheless, deep down the RSS remained political. ]

(UI-471-005) geweld; oorlog; Azië; grensconflicten; India; Pakistan; Sri Lanka; Nepal; Bangladesh; Jammu & Kashmir; Kashmir-conflict; Naxalieten; kastewreedheden; Noordoost-India-conflicten.
[ Large parts of Asia are affected by wars and violent conflicts. Many of these conflicts have been analyzed and much is known about their causes and the reasons for their escalation and violence. However, one of the main problems confronting people working for peace is the lack of information about the many initiatives that have been undertaken. Nor is sufficient information available about institutions that have gained expertise in specific conflicts. This book wants to fill the gaps in information, communication and coordination. ]

Schofield, Victoria (1997): Kashmir in the Crossfire. Viva Books Private Limited, New Delhi/Mumbai (354 pag). (UI-490-013) India; Kashmir-conflict; Jammu & Kashmir; Pakistan; grensconflicten; relatie India-Pakistan; geschiedenis.
[ An account of the origins, development and implications of the Kashmir-issue. Beginning with the early history of the kingdom of Kashmir, the author traces the origins of the modern state in the 19th century, including the 'sale' by the British of the Muslim state to a Hindu ruler in 1846. She examines the implications for the people when in 1947 the Maharaja came to choose between joining Pakistan or India. She shows why both countries continue to argue over the status of Kashmir which was to be determined by the will of the people. ]

Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven (106 pag). (UI-448-001) India; leger/defensie; wapens/kernwapens; relatie India-Pakistan; Pakistan; energie, kern-; China; Kashmir-conflict.
[ Door vele analisten wordt het Zuid-Aziatische subcontinent gezien als het meest waarschijnlijke gebied waar een conflict zou kunnen escaleren tot een nucleaire oorlog. De nucleaire patstelling tussen India en Pakistan wordt gezien als een van de hinderpalen voor een ontspanning in de regio. In deze literatuurstudie wordt gekeken naar de verschuivingen die zijn opgetreden in India's nucleaire beleid sinds de Koude Oorlog, en naar de motieven die dit beleid bepalen. Ook wordt aandacht besteed aan de kernproeven van mei 1998. ]

Verschooten, Chris; Peleman, Johan (1998): India & De Bom. IPIS, Antwerpen (53 pag). (UI-448-002) India; wapens/kernwapens; Pakistan; Kashmir-conflict; relatie India-Pakistan; grensconflicten.
[ India en Pakistan zijn toegetreden tot de club van de groten. De grootmachten die al beschikten over massavernietigingswapens spreken er schande van. Sommige westerse media menen zelfs te weten dat kernwapens in handen van India of Pakistan gevaarlijker zijn dan andere en ook de reacties in Zuid-Azië zelf worden met argusogen gevolgd. In het licht van de kwestie Kashmir die al 50 jaar aansleept en die al tot twee oorlogen tussen beide landen heeft geleid, is voorzichtigheid inderdaad geboden. De feiten nuchter op een rij. ]
