'How The BJP Wins: Inside India’s Greatest Election Machine'
Prashant Jha 
Juggernaut (August 2017)

What is the secret of Modi's mass appeal? Why didn't demonetization harm the BJP in the 2017 UP state elections? How exactly does the RSS help during election time? Does communal incitement actually win votes? How is the party growing in the north-east? And why did Amit Shah's brilliant election math fail him in Bihar? Talking to BJP insiders, members of the RSS, seasoned observers and voters, and based on extensive reportage from India's biggest states, Prashant Jha answers these and more, dissecting the BJP's formidable election machine with authority and insight.

Prashant Jha is a journalist and an author, and covers national politics and Indian foreign policy. He has authored two books, 'How the BJP Wins', and ‘Battles of the New Republic: A Contemporary History of Nepal’. The latter is a personal, reportage-based account of war and peace in his country. He is currently the Associate Editor of Hindustan Times. Prior to this, he was a political columnist for Nepal’s leading dailies for over five years, focusing, in particular, on the role of the far-left, rise of identity politics, and Nepal-India ties.
