Various theories are examined from the field of politics to unravel the role of the State. The views vary from globalization leading to a withering away of the state which is espoused by some scholars to the notion of the resilient state, with renewed emphasis on the functioning of the state. The work of political scientists such as Evans, Skocpol, Rudolph, and Partha Chatterjee is studied as being of relevance to the case of India. Rudolph and Rudolph have commented on the interaction between the State and society in a classic work. They believe that the State-society relationship can be located on a continuum ranging from complete state domination of society to complete societal domination of the state. Further, they identify four potential positions on the continuum: totalitarian, autonomous, constrained and reflexive.
