This thesis is a study of two multi-party coalition
governments which were in power in West Bengal, India, during
1967 and 1969-70 , respectively . They were unique in that as
many as fourteen parties joined the coalitions , and this very
fact automatically makes them an object of fascination and
interest . Added to the plurality of parties was a heterogeneity
of aims , interests and ideologies .
