Can practices of local level democracy in France and India as fostered by their local governments be compared? If contextualized with their respective geographical expanse intertwined with their political history, levels of economic development, demographic attributes and cultural moorings, comparison would, at best be shallow. The purpose of this volume, the first of its kind, is to sensitize readers with the nuances of democratic decentralization, viewed from both the angles od demand and supply in India as well as France.
