Throughout the world, multi-ethnic states are under stress from separatist movements. Using the state of Goa as a case study for the application of integration theory, this book shows how India has so far succeeded in remaining intact by promoting national identity. The author describes the construction of a Goan political community and the transformation of its identity in the postcolonial era. One of the few recent treatments of state politics in India, his book is the first to discuss Goa's ability to develop in a democratic context, and highlights the unique nature of the Indian path of integration.
