    Change is a constant, multifaceted and universal phenomenon which has been experienced at every stage of history. Change becomes transformative when it starts altering the basic nature of a system, heralding a new era. This has happened to the political maps of the world, bringing in societal and inter-state relationships. South Asia is no exception to this rule. It has witnessed many cartographic political changes over the centuries resulting in changes in culture, economy, governmental practices and inter-state relations. The present volume under review talks about the changing dynamics in the South Asian region in recent times especially after the Cold War. A collection of 11 eminent essays in their respective ways delve deeper for a rigorous enquiry of the democratic, political-economy and security transformation in South Asia.
