1 Asghar Ali Engineer (Author) & Mushirul Hasan (Frwd)
A Living Faith: My Quest for Peace, Harmony and Social Change (An Autobiography of Asghar Ali Engineer)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045724 / 9788125045724; Softcover; New; 
For most of the seventy-one years of his life, Asghar Ali Engineer has been a tireless soldier to the cause of national integration and communal harmony. Well-known today as a reformist, an activist and Islamic scholar, Asghar Ali Engineer received the Right Livelihood, or the ‘Alternative Nobel’, award in 2004 ‘for promoting over many years in South Asia the values of religious and communal co-existence, tolerance and mutual understanding’. Written with the simplicity that perhaps describes the man himself, is an extensive autobiographical account of Asghar Ali Engineer’s commitment to building an inclusive society and his inter-pretation of Islam as a modernist. It chronicles the personal, social and political events that shaped his life and views, his struggle against the orthodox Bohra priesthood and his rise as a leader of social and religious reform. It also documents his interactions with religious and political leaders of various hues across the world in the attempt to create a society that embraces all faiths.Printed Pages: 360. 101897

A Moral Reckoning: Muslim Intellectuals in Nineteenth-century Delhi
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195672380 / 9780195672381; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
How did prominent Muslim intellectuals in nineteenth-century Delhi construct Islam? How did they understand themselves as Muslims and as Indians living in British India? What paths did they embark upoin in their attempts to negotiate with the government? What was the place of adab and sharif culture before and after 1857? Existing studies on Delhi have neglected the history of ideas. This work, the first of its kind, illumines the little-known world of men of letters, for the most part teachers at the Delhi College. No one has surpassed them in their capacity to recover an epoch's intellectual tendencies. Zakaullah, the historian, Nazir Ahmad, the novelist, or Mirza Ghalib, the poet, present readers with a kadeidoscope of life around them, bringing alive the society of their time better than any academic construction could achieve. The author's own lively narrative, interspersed with Urdu verses, evokes a sense of the colour and charm characteristic of city life in the ni neteenth century. The uniqueness of this scholarly volume lies in the fact that it looks at the attitudes and behaviour of literary and historical figures living through the 1857 upheaval, a reappriasal fo their culture and identity, and, above all, the impact of their thinking and activism on contemporary society. What is more, A Moral Reckoning reveals how many sections of Delhi's Muslim intelligentsia built bridges of understanding between religious communities and responded to the conditions of modern life with a strong and universalistic component in defining the Indian Muslim. In his book, From Pluralism to Separatism: Qasbas in Colonial Awadh (OUP, 2004), Hasan found similar processes at work. This book provides the kinds of perspectives the social scientist will find helpful in understanding corss-cultural influences, and the place of pluralist and non-sectarian ideologies in a local milieu. It will interest a wide cross section of historians, political scienti sts, and sociologists. Printed Pages: 329. 011382

From Pluralism to Separatism: Qasbas in Colonial Awadh
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0195666089 / 9780195666083; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Few biographical narratives in India use the history of families to map the social and historical context of their times. In this pioneering work, Mushirul Hasan draws on the family history of the Kidwais of Bara Banki district of the United Provinces to provide an engaging and colourful account of Awadh society in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Moving away from an urban-oriented, Lucknow-centric look at Awadh, he studies the unique milieu of qasbas small settlements on the outskirts of Lucknow. In its exploration of qasbati identity, and its inheritance of Indo-Persian culture, this book delves deep into syncretic traditions handed down by families and communities of the qasbas. Hasan reconstructs the history of the Kidwai family in the light of the surrounding political, cultural, and social transformations. He traces a fresh intellectual history of Awadh and takes a critical view of assumptions characteristic of historical writing on Islamic societies in South Asia. Based on a wide range of primary sources in Urdu, the book brings alive the state of inter-community relations in the locality and highlights the pluralism and multiculturalism that characterized it. The author captures the ethos of qasbati culture which has fast disappeared since the abolition of zamindari in Uttar Pradesh and describes the divisive impact of Partition that left behind at best a fractured legacy of previous syncretism and boundless creativity. In the face of the resurgence of Hindu nationalism, this book illustrates yet again the diversity of influences on the history of the subcontinent. Printed Pages: 344. 001510

Islam Pluralism Nationhood: Legacy of Maulana Azad
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383098194; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, commonly remembered as Maulana Azad, rose to prominence through his work as a journalist, publishing works critical of the British Raj in the early 1920s. A powerful writer and an equally timulating orator, his sway over the Muslim communities was considered a threat by the government which looked for every opportunity to clip his wings and restrain his activities. But Azad took these tribulations gracefully and came to play a very decisive role as a senior leader of the Independence movement. Like his pen-name Azad, which meant free, here was a man who relentlessly strove to remove the shackles of incapacious thinking, challenging its rigidity, wisely integrating the munificence of Islam and pluralism into the folds of nationhood. In an unconventional form of storytelling this book seeks to provide the thrill and opportunity of being a historian and an explorer, to each reader. A compilation of confidential facsimiles of notes, memos and letters, rich and varied, they unfold Azads story like never before. The detailed history sheets compiled by the Intelligence Bureau, are as informative as entertaining, conveying the tentativeness at the heart of an anxious and apprehensive government. The other documents reflect government policies in relation to the popular upsurge that had taken place in some parts of the country, an agitation that also drew Azad into the nationalist fold. Post- Independence communications on policies that were gradually shaping the young independent India also shed ample light on Azads robust conviction of combining the essence of Islam and pluralism in building a new nation.

Knowledge, Power and Politics: Educational Institutions in India
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174360484 / 9788174360489; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume brings together, perhaps for the first time with such scholarly rigour, twelve studies of some premier educational institutions in India. These are: Gurukuls in southeast Punjab; St. Stephen's College; Delhi (Zakir Husain) College; Indraprastha College; Jamia Millia Islamia; Aligarh Muslim University; Nadwat al-Ulama, Lucknow; Patna College; Santiniketan; Presidency College, Calcutta; Elphinstone College; and Christian Medical College, Vellore. What was the vision that inspired, say, Syed Ahmad Khan and Rabindranath Tagore, to conceive of an educational centre? What meanings did they and the generations thereafter attach to Western learning? Again, how did gurukuls in Haryana and the Presidency College and the Jamia Millia Islamia, all located in the same city, respond to nationalist activities? What has been the impact of the changes that have taken place after Independence? Finally, are there some lessons to be drawn from the experiences and performance of our educational institutions? Each essay maps the beginning and the subsequent growth of an educational centre, embedded in the changing ethno-cultural and socio-political matrix from colonial to postcolonial times.

Moderate or Militant Images of India's Muslims
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195695313 / 9780195695311; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Though Islam and Muslims form an integral part of the rich history and culture of India, their voice in present times is a muted one. Academic discourse in the West, which is increasingly engaging with Islam, thus chooses to largely ignore their existence. Much of what is written about India’s Muslims, by Indian as well as Western scholars, tends to highlight the reactionary and strident over the moderate and normal. In this book Mushirul Hasan articulates a vision of Islam or rather the many different kinds of Islam, instead of the frightening monolith of popular perception, living in harmony with other faiths, and of Indian Muslims, inheritors of the great Indian civilization, living in a plural society. Engaging with the debates surrounding the society, polity, and history of India’s Muslims, and using historical and literary sources, as well as the writings of modern Muslim thinkers like Aziz Ahmad and Mohammad Mujeeb, Hasan traces the development of contemporary ideas about Muslims from the mid-nineteenth century onwards, through British rule and the partition, to the present day. For Hasan, a truly secular reading of Indian history reveals Indian Islam as one that exists in a pluralist milieu. 021614
