  • Public infighting and allegations of corruption have dented the moral standing of the people who helped elevate Anna Hazare and his movement to reform institutions in India. Public meetings in India, especially political gatherings, usually have the central figure seated in a red velvet chair that is the largest chair on the dais, or even in the district. On occasion, say, if he is on a death fast, this figure is on a thin white mattress. But there is always a small group of people who keep appearing on the dais to bend reverentially and whisper something extremely important into the ear of the Leader, who then nods. There is usually no dialogue.

  • With its profusion of languages, ethnic groups and regional diversities, with its unique caste system, with its contrast between information technology and industry billionaires and the nearly 300 million people who live below the poverty line, with its mixture of Mahatma Gandhi's nonviolent philosophy and outbreaks of savage communal violence, and with its success as a parliamentary democracy despite having 400 million people who cannot read or write, India remains a bewilderingly complex country. A powerful moral leader as well as a wily politician, Gandhi wanted Indians to be proud of their past, to wear Indian rather than foreign dress, to challenge their colonial overlords through peaceful protest and noncooperation and not through violence, and to eliminate discrimination against...

  • The liberalization of India's economy since 1991 has brought with it considerable development of its financial markets and supporting legal institutions. An influential body of economic scholarship asserts that a country's "legal origin" - as a civilian or common law jurisdiction - plays an important part in determining the development of its investor protection regulations, and consequently its financial development. An alternative theory claims that the determinants of investor protection are political, rather than legal. We use the case of India to test these theories. We find little support for the idea that India's legal heritage as a common law country has been influential in speeding the path of regulatory reforms and financial development. Rather, we suggest there are complement...

  • If there can be such a thing as a commonwealth statesman in the 21st century, then Sir Donald McKinnon is its quintessence. Indeed, you might say that he embodies the institutions heritage, with its roots in the British Empire, as well as its multicultural, polyglot contemporary incarnation he guided as secretary-general of the Commonwealth of Nations between 2000 and 2008. For what was once called the British Commonwealth with the United Kingdom at the helm, or at the very least a clear first among supposed equals is now as much without a single political leader as the United Nations. Of course, Queen Elizabeth is the titular head of this association largely made up of her remaining dominions and the Commonwealth republics who also recognize her as their figurehead, but insofar as an...

  • Anna Hazare's fast, which ended Sunday with a sip of coconut water and honey, exposed a populist rage in India. Having ceded to his demands, what next for Parliament? For the nearly two weeks that Anna Hazare staged his hunger strike, the question hanging over India had been, "When would it end?" After Mr. Hazare triumphantly broke his fast on Sunday, a different question arose: What now?

Contemporary Israel is divided into three main subject areas: domestic politics (with a primary interest in Israel's political parties), foreign policy (regarding the Palestinians, the Arab World, Turkey, India, and the US), and security challenges (including terrorism, domestic demographics, Iran, and the 2006 war with Hizbullah).
