Abstract

If it's impossible to conceive of democracies sans elections, why is it impossible to imagine elections without the flood of money in politics? How does every general election in India get more expensive than the last one? Stepping into the mucky terrain to find out what enables the average Indian vote to have a price, 'Costs of Democracy' opens readers' eyes to the opaque and enigmatic ways in which money flows through the political heart of the world's largest democracy.
