Show Summary Details


The concluding chapter discusses several of the main arguments and results that were presented in the previous chapters. It looks at their implications on the broader literature for pro-poor politics, as well as for politics in other Indian states. The chapter starts with a recollection of the basic results in terms of the original research hypotheses. It then moves on to a discussion on the implications of the arguments found in this book. The extent to which these results can be used to improve an understanding of state politics in other Indian states is studied as well. The final section in the chapter focuses on the possible areas for future research and where the methods used in this book can also be applied.
