1 Christophe Jaffrelot and Peter van Der Veer (eds)
Patterns of Middle Class Consumption in India and China
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936238 / 9780761936237; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is a book about the emerging patterns of consumption among the middle classes of India and China. The book compares cultural shifts as a result of liberalization and globalization in these two emerging Asian powers. This volume does not compare India and China to the West, as books on similar subjects have done in the past. Instead they are compared with each other. This book is well-timed, considering that both these countries have so much in common in terms of scale, civilization, history, and as emerging economies. The chapters in this book have been written by sociologists, anthropologists, and political scientists rather than by economists, so the emphasis is on cultural shifts rather than economic statistics. Transnational developments, like tourism, karaoke, soap operas, and the art market, have all been extensively covered in this book. Printed Pages: 308. 028137

2 Peter Van Der Veer
The Modern Spirit of Asia: The Spiritual and the Secular in China and India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054243 / 9788125054245; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Modern Spirit of Asia challenges the notion that modernity in China and India are derivative imitations of the West, arguing that these societies have transformed their ancient traditions in unique and distinctive ways. Peter van der Veer begins with nineteenth-century imperial history, exploring how Western concepts of spirituality, secularity, religion, and magic were used to translate the traditions of India and China. He traces how modern Western notions of religion and magic were incorporated into the respective nation-building projects of Chinese and Indian nationalist intellectuals, yet how modernity in China and India is by no means uniform. While religion is a centerpiece of Indian nationalism, it is viewed in China as an obstacle to progress that must be marginalized and controlled.Printed Pages: 296. 101997
