Abstract : The monograph tests Lucian Pye's six crises in political development to determine the applicability of the model to nation building in India. India's social, political and economic development are traced through the six crises: identity, legitimacy, participation, penetration, integration and distribution, and related to the nation's historical background and its national character to determine if the crises have occurred and how the government has met and dealt with them. The discussion confirms the efficacy of the model and suggests that the model may be an equally valuable tool in identifying and analyzing the effects of social and political change in any nation without regard to its stage of development.
