Abstract

It no longer makes sense to talk of India without analyzing its infra-national diversity. Yet, this article not only argues for the need to build upon but also go beyond the subnational comparative analysis for India. I make three related points.While scholars exploit the variation easily found at the provincial level in India, they must also take their subnational insights and generalize about India as a whole.
