Abstract

Army and Nation draws on a wealth of data to explore how and why India has succeeded in keeping the military out of politics, when so many others failed. Pratinav Anil finds that Wilkinson makes a convincing case for why India’s democracy survived while Pakistan experienced a series of military regimes. He deems it an essential read for those interested in the postcolonial histories of the two South Asian countries.
