Social Movements in India: A Review of Literature
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0761998349; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 5.5" x 8.5" 
Social movements primarily take the form of non-institutionalised collective political action which strive for political and/or social change. While India has witnessed many such movements over the centuries, it is only recently that scholars have begun to study them in depth. This thoroughly revised and updated version of a seminal book critically examines and reviews the literature concerning social movements in India from 1857 to the present. In the process he discusses the theoretical issues raised by various scholars while analysing major trends in different movements. In conclusion, he suggests areas for future research. Proposing a logical classification of social movements in modern India, this book will be widely welcomed by social activists as well as by political scientists, historians and sociologists. It will also be invaluable as a text in courses on social movements. Printed Pages: 280. 007969

Dalits and the State
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8170229227; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Indian State under the directives of the Constitution is expected to play the role of interventionist to bring social transformation. It aims at eradicating feudal hierarchical social order based on Brahminical ideology and building an egalitarian secular modern society providing all citizens social and political justice, equality, liberty and dignity of life. The dalits, socially and economically most oppressed of Indian society look upon the state not only to provide equal opportunities but also to create positive conditions for improving their socio economic condition. They perceived the state as a saviour to liberate them from the shackles of bondage and deprivation based on birth. After the five decades of Independence a question needs to be examined: What changes have taken place in socio economic status of Dalits and what role the state has played in the process. This is the central concern of this volume. This contributors of this volume are social scientists from India and abroad; social activists and experienced civil servants. Besides analysing Dr. Ambedkar concept of social justice and the role of the State, the various chapters of the volume examines (1) economic and educational status of the Dalits; (2) the nature and extent of untouchability in rural and urban areas; (3) Condition of scavengers; (4) atrocities against the Dalits; and (5) reservation.

10707 Ghazala Shahabuddin
Conservation at the Crossroads: Science, Society, and the Future of India's Wildlife
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8178242648; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The author argues that a broad-based participatory India faces an ecological crisis of massive proportions. The overexploitation of the country’s forests and wetlands is eating away at vital ecological processes. Rapid and unplanned economic development threatens to fragment and devour the wildlife habitats that remain. Plant and animal species are joining the ranks of the critically endangered at faster rates than ever before. Using the Sariska Tiger Reserve as one of its major anchors, this book analyses the historical, socio-political, and biological contexts of nature conservation in the country in an effort to identify the malaise underlying India’s dominant conservation paradigm, which is primarily one of top-down control and exclusion. It then surveys alternative approaches to conservation—emerging in India and elsewhere—which attempt to reconcile social equity with biodiversity goals. approach to conservation, accommodating both use-based and preservationist paradigms, is necessary if we are to see India’s extraordinary wildlife survive into the next century. Environmental justice and improved governance have to be as much a part of this agenda as sound ecological science and practice. Printed Pages: 288. 032740

Early Indian Feudal Society and its Culture
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8121512751; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Early Indian Feudal Society and its Culture is based on the early Indian period which saw the “origin and growth of feudalism.” This book does not claim to present a general history of early India in the traditional manner, but the distinctive characteristic of this book lies in the fact that it presents a synthesis of social, economic and cultural history of early India. Early India created a rich and varied culture and in this period many Indian literary languages were formed. At this time major literary and cultural similarities began to unite people of different religions and languages, as can be seen in the oral tradition and cultural life of the people living then. The purpose of studying the early India is not simply to learn what it was like, but to have a better understanding of the present-day India through investigation into our ancient roots. The history of early India is the history of bitter conflict between peasants and feudal lords. Early Indian Ages were not only a time of conservatism and ignorance, casteism, victimization of Sudras and feudal brutality, but also were a time of great cultural achievement in which magnificent works of literature, art and architecture were created as a fine testimony to the creative genius of the people. I hope this book will help reveal something of the complex, mysterious, but always interesting world of the Early Indian Ages. Printed Pages: 234. 038179

Origin and Growth of Feudalism in Early India: From the Mauryas to AD 650
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8121510287; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This work analyses the origin and growth of feudalism, and deals with the political, economic and social aspect of Indian feudalism. This period saw origin and growth of feudalism, it referred the division of society into social estates, privileges for the nobility, closed economy, the dominant position of landed aristocrats, all that hampered the movement of society forward and restricted the development of town and trade. The Indian form of feudalism have been treated on the basis of history of ancient India. The complexity and variety of life in feudal society has been shown, fundamental concepts offered, and the basic patterns of the development of the socio-economic and political formation of feudalism explained. This work would be of great interest to the historian of Ancient Indian History and the researchers who are interested in the study of feudalism. Printed Pages: 190. 012428

Bharatiya Paramparao mein Mrtyu Ki Avadharana: Sarira ka Antarana Aura Dahakarma Samskara
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8124603138; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Yama, in Hindu mythology, is the eschatologist and god of death. And is, thus, dreaded. Even in today's India, there is a fearful hesitancy, if not conscious avoidance, of any talk about him. Yet, paradoxically, the phenomenon of death does not evoke a similar fear in the Indian psyche -- accepted, as it is, a natural event, a part of life: just like poverty, sickness and old age. Here is an insightful, at once compelling exposition of the phenomenon of death, based on plurimillennial tradition of the Hindus -- which, despite the affirmation of Western attitudes in certain elitist sections of the urban society, has endured since the times of the Vedas and Indic Civilization. Exploring, contextually, the age-old Indian view of mortal existence: from the very moment of an individual's conception to his/her journey to the Kingdom of Yama -- through the major phases of birth, growth and ageing, Professor Filippi unveils a complex network of sentiments, beliefs, scriptural references, customs, hopes, ritualistic practices and much else -- relevant to the "great adventure" of death. Notwithstanding the sentimental undertones of the mrityu-theme, Dr. Filippi's work outstands for its rare scientific objectivity. It has grown from years of his rigorous research effort involving not only his extensive studies of Indian literature: classical and modern, but also his interviews with Indian samnyasins, brahmanas, relatives of the dead, and the persons living around the cremation grounds. Together with visual material, bibliographic references, and a glossary of non-English terms, the book holds out as much appeal to the general reader as to the specialist.Printed Pages: 200 100394

The Dhammapada: A New Translation of the Buddhist Classic with Annotations
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2006; 1590303806; Softcover; New; 
The Dhammapada is the most widely read Buddhist scripture in existence, enjoyed by both Buddhists and non-Buddhists. This classic text of teaching verses from the earliest period of Buddhism in India conveys the philosophical and practical foundations of the Buddhist tradition. The text presents two distinct goals for leading a spiritual life: the first is attaining happiness in this life (or in future lives); the second goal is the achievement of spiritual liberation, freedom, absolute peace. Many of the key themes of the verses are presented in dichotomies or pairs, for example, grief and suffering versus joy; developing the mind instead of being negligent about one's mental attitude and conduct; virtuous action versus misconduct; and being truthful versus being deceitful. The purpose of these contrasts is, very simply, to describe the difference between what leads to desirable outcomes and what does not.For centuries, this text has been studied in its original Pali, the canonical language of Buddhism in Southeast Asia. This fresh new translation from Insight Mediation teacher and Pail translator Gil Fronsdal is both highly readable and scholarly authoritative. With extensive explanatory notes, this edition combines a rigorous attention to detail in bringing forth the original text with the translator's personal knowledge of the Buddhist path. It is the first truly accurate and highly readable translation of this text to be published in English. Printed Pages: 192. 111022

Revolution Unending: Afghanistan 1979 to the Present
Hurst & Company; London, UK; 1850657033; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
While not underestimating the oft-cited “ethnic factor” in Afghan politics, especially Pashtun dominance, Dorronsoro argues that class and the competition for employment and education are key factors in explaining the country’s past. The 1990s saw a confrontation between the educated and the religious authorities (the ulema) and the marginalisation of the traditional elites. Contrary to the glib optimism of world politicians, this conflict may periodically go into quite phases, but it has not ended. With coalition intervention and the subsequent deposition of the ulema-dominated Taliban government, the educated elites are back in power. However, as Dorronsoro argues, patching up the country by means of short-term ethnic alliances and a new division of the spoils will only perpetuate the schisms in society. He believes, on a very sounbd factual and analytical basis, that the Afghan civil war is set to continue and perhaps worsen over time, despite Western intervention since 9/11.

Painting and Photography: At The Jaipur Court
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285240; Hardcover; New; New; 24 x 31 Cm 
From its very inception in 1727, Jaipur has drawn upon the arts to carve a niche for itself. This book tells the story of the visual arts in Jaipur over a period of more than two centuries, highlighting the dual roles of its rulers as patrons who commissioned works from their own court artists, and as collectors who acquired works from elsewhere. In the special case of Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II, it also encompasses the creation of art, as he was an accomplished amateur photographer.The story begins with paintings from the 18th century, from the period of the founder Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, up to that of Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, under whose reign painting in particular flourished. It then captures the excitement of the late 19th century when the camera competed with but also complemented the artist’s brush under Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II. The story concludes with images from the eventful years leading to Indian Independence and its aftermath overseen by Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh II and Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II, bringing us up to the mid-20th century.This volume is the fourth in a new series of publications illustrating the collections of the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum, City Palace, Jaipur. It accompanies a new gallery dedicated to painting and photography that opened in 2015, showcasing a selection of two hundred paintings and photographs. Specially commissioned chapters on painting and photography in Jaipur expand on the scope of the exhibition and draw together the latest research on the collection. Other books in the series are: Festivals at the Jaipur Court, by Vibhuti Sachdev; Arms & Armour at the Jaipur Court, by Robert Elgood; and Textiles & Garments at the Jaipur Court, by Rahul Jain.

EC Competition Law
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521700752; First Edition; Paperback; New; 175 x 245 Mm 
The development of competition law in the EU can be explored through three interrelated perspectives: the extent to which controversies in economic thinking affect the design of the law; how changing political visions about the objectives of competition law have caused shifts in the interpretation of the rules; and the institution in charge of applying the rules. The economic and political debates on competition law show that it is a contested terrain, and the way courts and competition authorities apply the law reflects their responses to the objectives and economics of competition law. By characterising the application of competition law as a continuous response to policy and economic debates, the author casts fresh perspectives on the subject. Written with competition law students in mind, Monti sets out economic concepts in a non-technical manner and explores the policy dimension of competition law by referring to key cases and contemporary policy initiatives. • Non-technical reviews of the relevant economic literature allow all readers to participate fully in the discussion of competition law • Detailed case studies illustrate the operation of rules in specific circumstances, as well as their general application for a fuller understanding • The introduction of new topics for study gives the student the broadest possible perspective on the subject Contents 1. Competition law - policy perspectives; 2. The core values of EC competition law in flux; 3. Economics and competition law; 4. Competition law and public policy; 5. Market power; 6. Abuse of a dominant position: anticompetitive exclusion; 7. Abuse of a dominant position: from competition policy to sector-specific regulation; 8. Merger policy; 9. Oligopoly markets; 10. Distribution agreements; 11. Institutions: who enforces competition law?; 12: Competition law and liberalisation; 13. Conclusions. Printed Pages: 568. 020793

Rock Art of India
Sharada Publishing House; Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383221066; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
India is one of the three countries having the richest treasures of rock art in the world; other two are Australia and South Africa. A lot of developments have been made in Rock Art Discipline globally during the last twenty-five years, and India played a crucial role in this development, especially in the study of the Pleistocene art through the EIP Project. Hence, there was a strong need of a book which can give a comprehensive picture of Indian rock art in the light of the latest developments in rock art research in India. The present book is an attempt to present Prehistoric Indian rock art with its irresistible beauty and glamour in the light of the latest developments in a scientific way. It presents an outline of how rock art research began and developed in this country. The facts presented and hypotheses proposed on the basis of available evidence can be checked and tested by future researches. There is another important dimension to this issue, the protection and preservation of rock art, which has become such a major concern around the world. The efforts become more effective if the rock art scholars are able to take the support of the general mass. Hence, the book has been presented in such a way that it will not only be useful for rock art specialists but can also meet the general queries and aspirations of the enthusiasts and amateurs who want to know and visit the superbly rich and beautiful Indian rock art. It helps both of them: the specialist to appreciate the importance of public communication and to learn how to achieve it; and the layperson by making overly complex hypotheses and ideas readily accessible. It also highlights the mesmerising beauty of the rock art sites which are great attractions for the persons, especially the youth having adventurous spirit and creative mind.Printed Pages: 256 with 15 figures, 75 colour & 40 b/w illustrations. 102717

The Dreams of Tipu Sultan: Bali: The Sacrifice. Two Plays By Girish Karnad
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0195664760; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This is a collection of two new plays by Girish Karnad, one of India s foremost dramatists and actors. The first play introduces the reader to the visions of one of India s most famous rulers, and the second, to the inner conflict of violence vs. non-violence of a 10th century king faced with his queen s infidelity. The figure of Tipu Sultan has continued to dominate Indian and British imagination for over two centuries, as the endless flow of scholarly works, ballads, plays and novels about his tempestuous life and tragic end testifies. What however is less well known, is that this man, who spent a large part of his life on horseback, maintained a record of his dreams that he kept concealed from his nearest associates. The Dreams of Tipu Sultan, which explores the inner life of this warrior, political visionary and dreamer, was commissioned by the BBC and broadcast in Britain on the fiftieth anniversary of Indian Independence. Bali: The Sacrifice was staged on June 2002 at the L eicester Haymarket Theatre, UK. The king in the 10th cent. Jain myth, upon which the play is based, is devastated to discover that his queen is involved with an elephant-keeper. Circumstances force him to sacrifice a cockerel to the gods in order to avoid further evil befalling the family. But he is a Jain, and non-violence is a fundamental principle of Jain faith. In desperation, he substitutes a bird made of dough, with unexpected results. The myth is less concerned with actual violence than with the morality of substitution, which permits violence that is wider and more subtle by masking its appearance. Printed Pages: 133. 033298

Yayati
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195692365; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
In the Mahabharata, King Yayati is cursed to old age in the prime of life for a sexual misdemeanour of his and tries to circumvent the catastrophe by demanding that his son, Pooru, lend him his youth in exchange for the curse. This unusual myth about a parent's aggression against his offspring has inspired some of India's most eminent writers to explore it in fiction, poetry, and drama. Girish Karnad was only twenty-two when he attempted his interpretation in the play, Yayati. What makes his version of the tale so resonant, and startlingly original, is that he rejects the traditional glorification of the son's ''self-sacrifice' and, against a backdrop of lust, jealousy, and racial tensions, foregrounds the tragic choices with which the young prince and his bride are confronted. Angry, energetic, ambitious, and strongly influenced by the tragic vision of the Existentialists, the play immediately established Karnad's reputation as a dramatist in Kannada and launched him on his celebrated career in the Indian theatre. Yayati has been translated into different Indian languages and has continued to be performed all over the country during the half century since it was written. 019727

Local Democracy in India: Interpreting Decentralization
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761935339; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Despite the considerable literature on the subject and the innumerable experiments at making it work, decentralization remains an enigma today. The basic objective of this large-scale study is to reconstruct the contemporary history of decentralization in India with a view to understanding its impact on democratization. This is done with reference to the experiences of four states—Maharashtra, West Bengal, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh—which represent three generations of panchayats. The author assesses the contribution of these local institutions in expanding the social base of democracy and in deepening the process of democratization at the local level. Using interviews and discussions with all the actors in the field of decentralization, the author presents a comparative and detailed account of panchayat-centric democratic decentralization in these states. In doing so, the original objectives of the policy-makers have been interrogated, and an assessment made of the intentions as compared to the ground reality. Printed Pages: 336. 028595

It may help those who think that humanity has not reached 'the end of history' and the collapse of the Soviet Union is just a temporary set back for the fight to build a better and just society. The book refers to the plausible reasons for the failure of the efforts to build Socialism in the Soviet Union and it also takes not of the worldwide debate on it. It has brought in materials like the late South African thinker and activist Joe Slovo's Has Socialism Failed?, which are not easily accessible. The book is of immense value to all those who are interested in social sciences and contemporary international developments. The Author has tried to present both sides while dealing with controversies and topics which arouse great ideological and political emotions. A glance though the treatment of globalisation is sufficient to underline this.Printed Pages: 390. 101216

Balzac: Mirror of Emerging Modern Capitalism
Pragati Publications; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8173070636; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Balzac remains undisputably one of the greatest novelists produced by mankind. Born on 20 May 1799, he became a self-appointed chronicler of the five decades that followed Napoleon's ascendancy to power, or better to say, the post-Revolution French society when modern capitalism came into existence. He produced an enormous amount of literature of the first rate. In fact, the historic unity of his Human Comedy was woven around his assessment of The Changes in the French society, brought about by the two phases of the Revolution. He demonstrated that no part of the society was static or at rest. The forces unleashed by the Revolution brought in violent movements and changes with great swiftness and all opposition was swept away. These changes were all pervasive affecting the base as well as the superstructure in their entirety. Credit goes to Balzac for depicting them with superb analytical skill. This is why both Marx and Engels advised people to read Balzac's novels rather than arid treatises of scholars. The present Book is a significant contribution to the study of Balzac's works. It takes the reader with Balzac on a journey through the French society during the first half of the nineteenth century. The reader is enabled to discern the changes in various sectors of the economy, society and politics. It shows how Balzac searched for the material basis of each phenomenon witnessed by him in all its historical connections and movements and made an effort to see whether any pattern could be found. His sweep was so vast that seldom anything of consequence slipped away from his grasp. This book is both relevant and timely for the present-day readers in India where since the turn of the 1990s, almost unbridled growth of capitalism in the Context of globalisation has begun and no segment of socio-economic life is untouched. Corruption, criminalisation, the growth of a very powerful underworld, cut-throat competition, and so on have come to be witnessed. It will help them understand what is happening here and why.Printed Pages: 385. 101221

Sociology and Economics of Casteism in India
Pragati Publications; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8173070369; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Bihar is one of the largest States of India with enormous natural resources and vast manpower. It has a glorious and very ancient history, influencing the course of developments and events not only in India but the world at large. Its soil is fertile, people hardworking, rivers flowing with water throughout the year, its Earth full of valuable and even rare minerals and the climate is congenial, yet its economy has been on the decline and the incidence of poverty on the increase. Its cities, towns and villages unmistakably give the impression of its continuous sliding down. It is one of the most backward States of the country. The administrative machinery seems to have withered away, there is anarchy and chaos, Law and order does not seem to exist, criminalization appears to have enveloped the State and infrastructural facilities are in the ruin. Land reforms have failed to proceed further after the abolition of zamindari system. Educational System is nothing but a scandal and corruption is all pervasive. Casteism is the reigning ideology. This Book looks into the present plight of Bihar on the basis of facts, figures and records. It goes into history, sociology, economy and politics of the State since the establishment of the British Raj. Such a comprehensive study has been attempted for the first time. No other scholar ever attempted such a task in the past with the result that all Other Books and papers and journalistic writings suffer from lopsidedness and, at times, bias and prejudices.Since the two authors have been associated with Bihar and its politics from their student days and have watched, participated in and analyzed Bihar's developments, there is clarity and authenticity which is generally absent in the works of foreign scholars and journalists.Printed Pages: 433. 101225

Psychology & Psychoanalysis (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization, Volume XIII, Part 3)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8187586540; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
The volumes of the PROJECT ON THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE, PHILOSOPHY AND CULTURE IN INDIAN CIVILIZATION aim at discovering the main aspects of India's heritage and present them in an interrelated way. In spite of their unitary look, these volumes recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. The Project is marked by what may be called 'methodological pluralism'. Inspite of its primarily historical character, this project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization. Psychology and Psychoanalysis highlights the confluence of Indian and Western perspectives on the explorations of mental processes and behaviour. The volume is an authoritative source on the history and current standing of the new synthesis of idea that is emerging under the concept of Indian Psychology in the beginning of the 21st century. It shows how a traditionally occidental scientific discipline-psychology-can benefit from the rich cultural-historical traditions of all the different social practices and beliefs that have been present in the cultures of the Indian sub-continent for centuries. While occidental psychology has usually overlooked the contributions from outside the Euro-American axis of social power relations, it cannot do that anymore. Psychology in the Occident has been in a conceptual crisis ever since it's beginning, and overcoming that crisis requires constructive innovation from other cultural traditions. The volume attends to some of the major issues central to the contemporary psychological scholarship. It offers perspectives on psychological phenomena and processes and situates them in the Indian context. In particular it brings to the center stage the issues that emanate from the interface of culture and psyche. In this process the volume offers a survey in some of the major domains of psychology to articulate disciplinary developments. The volume provides focused discussions on issue in each of these areas as well as on the emergent concerns. Contributed by leading psychologists in respective fields every chapter in the volume draws upon a theme of disciplinary and cultural significance to offer critical insights. The chapters are devoted to probing psychological themes in the tradition of culturally sensitive human science. In this way the volume fosters the connections between the scientific spirit and cultural intelligibilities. It offers analysis of the shifts and transformations in the discipline and documents scholarship that acknowledges the contributions from indigenous knowledge systems as well as contemporary developments in major subfields. Comprehensive and wide-ranging in scope the volume brings together current perspectives on the manner in which the various facets of human mind, behaviour and experience. It attempts at articulation and integration of Indian thought traditions and modern psychology by engaging in dialogue. By presenting authoritative and exhaustive analyses of substantive processes, debates, and phenomena relating to consciousness, self, identity, emotion, group behaviour, intergroup relations, justice, organization, values, gender, violence, well being and psychological knowledge. Taken together the volume reflects the diversity of research interests and critically evaluates the way psychology has responded to the sociocultural reality by psychologists and psychoanalysts.

The Indus People
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380828855; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The banks of the Sindhu river, and the other northern river basins, were the theatre of the Mahabharata war and the cradle of the Indus Valley Civilisation. These are also the lands where languages and lyricism flourished. In this cultural meltingpot evolved many a religion and diverse cults, jogis and sufis, Sikhs and Shias. Girija Kumar's seminal work, 'Saraiki to Sufiana: The Indus People and the Liberal Hindu' deals with a mozaic of myths and migrations, thoughts and beliefs, cultural practices and castes, and brings to his readers a memorable work that leaves scope for further investigations into the roots of northern India's peoples and their poetry. It is a book of relevance to scholars of indology, history and sociology, and is of equal interest to the student of military history and mythology; it is a book for the subcontinent- watcher who want to know where India and Pakistan are coming from, and how their present reflect their past.

Anthropology and the New Genetics
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521671744; First Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
The growth of ‘new genetics’ has dramatically increased our understanding of health, diseases and the body. Anthropologists argue that these scientific advances have had far-reaching social and cultural implications, radically changing our self-understanding and perception of what it means to be human; that we have become ‘biomedicalized’, fragmented and commodified - redefining our notions of citizenship, social relations, family and identity. This book shows how anthropology can contribute to and challenge the ways we have come to understand genetic issues. Exploring a range of issues and case studies in genetic research, it provides an ethnographic ‘reality-check’, arguing that we must look beyond the ‘gene-centrism’ of genetic codes, family trees and insular populations, to explore their wider cultural, ethical and philosophical implications. Including coverage of the controversial and widely discussed Icelandic Health Sector Database, this accessible survey will be welcomed by graduate students and researchers in social anthropology, human genetics and biotechnology. • Engages with both the scientific advances of genetic research, and their theoretical and social implications • Discusses in detail some of the most important genetic databases and research projects that have emerged since the late 1990s • Provides a fresh and original perspective on how we understand ourselves and our bodies in light of new scientific advances Contents 1. Introduction: ‘as deep as life itself’; 2. Birthmarks become landmarks: 'little worlds in themselves'; 3. Genealogies, relationships and histories; 4. Biobanking: medical records and genetic databases; 5. For whom the cell tolls: bioethics; 6. Biovalue: appropriating genomes; 7. Human variation; 8. Conclusions.
