1 Girish Kumar
Local Democracy in India: Interpreting Decentralization
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761935339 / 9780761935339; 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

5 Girish Mishra & Braj Kumar Pandey
Sociology and Economics of Casteism in India
Pragati Publications; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8173070369 / 9788173070365; 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

6 Braj Kumar Pandey & Girish Mishra
White-Collar Crimes
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121205905 / 9788121205900; Hardcover; New; New; 
Interesting narration of crimes which are being committed by the privileged, the high and mighty section of the Society in India and some other Countries are analysed by the authors. The fall-outs of corporate-sector crimes-killing, injuring, maiming and robbing the public at Large by pretty sophisticated methods are laid open. It also discusses various scams with details and prominent of them viz. BCCI scam is discussed at length to show how Pakistani officials and CIA had tried to ball BCCI out. Criminals and crimes in the Fields of education, bureaucracy, media, godmen and, above all, Politics are put to extensive scrutiny.With the Rise of modern Industrial capitalism, the World has come to witness a new type of crimes which have been variously known as white-collar crimes, the crimes of the rich and powerful and so on. While in the USA, Britain, France and elsewhere, there are lot of Research works done and published on their various facets. There has been no substantial and worthwhile research in India. Even no thought-provoking Novel has come to be written, not to speak of treating the subject in the Fashion of Dickens and Balzac. Without understanding the phenomenon, no amount of clarion-calls whether given from the ramparts of the Red Fort or the Parliament House can make even a small dent in the problem. The present Study tries to fill-up this gap. It looks into the genesis of white-collar crimes and criminality of which corruption in various spheres of life is an important aspect and the link with modern Capitalism in General and India in particular. It poses and answers why the white-collar crimes have proliferated and assumed menacing proportions in recent years and what will happen if no urgent steps are taken. And these steps have to be more than mere moral platitudes. The study consists of 12 comprehensive chapters which deal with the phenomenon and its various aspects and its proliferation in the Corporate sector, the media, religion, education, Bureaucracy and politics. It devotes a chapter to the growth of mafia and its origin, various characteristics and the mode of operation. It has analysed the deadly nexus among business, bureaucracy, politics and mafia in the light of the scams which have surfaced in India during recent years. The study is a scholarly endeavour written in a very readable style, which may be helpful to researchers, politicians, journalists and general readers.Printed Pages: 426. 105898
