Democracy and Its Institutions
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 0198080964 / 9780198080961; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book looks at democracy in an institutional perspective and examines its achievements and limitations. It deals with such institutions as the Parliament, the courts of justice, and the system of political parties. Its focus on institutions is designed to bring out the contradictions between the ideals of democracy such as equality and liberty, and the actual operation of government and politics. The book introduces the reader to the distinction between law and custom, and between matters of right and matters of trust. Democracy and Its Institutions is a product of many years of research and reflection by a leading sociologist and public intellectual. It is written in a clear and lucid style and will be of interest to students and teachers in a wide variety of social science disciplines as well as to others who are concerned about the fortunes of democracy in India.

Marxism and Class Analysis
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195686969 / 9780195686968; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Marxism has played a crucial role directly and indirectly in the development of social analysis in India. This collection of essays by Andre Beteille addresses the contemporary significance of Marxism in the study of society, polity, and economy. The problems of inequality, class, and conflict in India are discussed with special reference to its agrarian social structure. Marxism has often been identified with what is described as the class approach to society. While recognizing the historical and contemporary relevance of class, the essays in the substantive part of the book deal with other sources of inequality and conflict, and their relationship with class. The analysis also brings out the diverse and changing meanings of class within the Marxist tradition itself. It presents accounts of inequality and conflict at various levels of society: village, district, and region. It also provides an overview of the changes that have taken place in the concept of and approaches to the study of class since the time of Marx. 019711

6 André Béteille
Sociology: Essays on Approach & Methodology (Second Edition)
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0195698843 / 9780195698848; Second Edition; Paperback; New; 
These essays reflect André Béteille’s central concerns as a teacher and scholar of sociology. They examine the nature and scope of the discipline including its distinctive conception as an intellectual pursuit and its relation to associated fields of anthropology, economics and political science. The substantially revised second edition re-emphasizes the author’s standpoint that sociology as an intellectual discipline should be concerned more directly with the present than the past. In addition to his central concern of comparing societies and the social significance of tradition, Béteille engages with the ideas of sociologists like Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, N.K. Bose and M.N. Srinivas. Lucidly written, the book enhances our understanding of the social framework in which we live. Essential reading for students and researchers of sociology, anthropology, history and political science, this volume will also interest the non-specialist reader. 034002
