Abstract:The analysis considers the elements of power versus resistance with respect to persuasion in answering the question, "When has coercion occurred?" The family planning persuasion in India under the rule of Indira Gandhi is examined in light of the proposed system of analysis to determine that a form of psychological but not usually physical coercion was practiced during India's family planning effort. The persuasion campaign is described and a rationale is offered from the perspective of Indian elites.
