The Focus Has Been To Look At Their Nature From The Point Of View Of Regime Types And Class Essence, In Other Words On The Margins Of Different Social Science Perspectives. Theories Dealing With State Centric And Society Centric Views Have Been Examined In The Historical Internal And The International Contexts. Speaking Relatively, The State In India Stands Taller Than Russia, Peripheral Central Asia And Authoritarian Pakistan With Regard To Its Ontos And Performance Despite Of Emergency And Current Threats To Its Polity, If The Latter Does Not Mature. Militarism Of Pakistan Has Been Examined With Reference To Its Lineages And International Linkages. Unlike Other Case Studies Pakistan Is Unique In Representing A Case Apart On This Score. Scholars, Students And The Ordinary Reader Will Find This Useful As A Reading And As A Input Into Further Pursuits Of Issues Of The Nature Of Statehood Under The Phase Of Globalisation. In That Context Again We Notice That India Has Been Able To Deal With The Related Issues With More Care To Both Autonomy Within And Sovereignty Abroad. Challenges From The Ordinary People, Regional Groupings And Ethnicity Have Been Highlighted. A Book Like This Is Always Timely And Need Of The Hour. It Does Not Claim To Offer The Road Map Of The Future Except Indicating The Need Of Responding To The Demands Of The Ordinary People., About The Author:- Rakesh Gupta Is A Professor With The Centre For Political Studies, School Of Social Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi Since The Last Twenty Three Years.
