This book relates to the Indian debate on reservations - a legal provision that guarantees a minimum presence in various institutions to social categories considered considered as victims of a historical prejudice. It focuses on the implementation of electoral reservations for scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes and women. The book thus offers a collective, though partial, stock-taking exercise, and adds to our understanding of reservations as a policy, their limitations and their principal and secondary effects.
