Description of work:
My research and publication since 1963 has been on the politics and
sociology of the Muslim minority in India since independence (1947) and
on the Muhajirs or Indian Muslim refugees in Pakistan. Nowadays it would
fall under the subheading of comparative ethnicity and political genealogy.
My teaching since 1965 has been in the subfield of Political Science
known as Comparative Politics. I have taught courses on South Asian
Politics, Political Development, Comparative Public Politics and
Comparative Ethnicity at undergraduate and graduate levels.
