3 Pramod K. Nayar
Citizenship and Identity in the Age of Surveillance
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 1107080584 / 9781107080584; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is a study of cultures of surveillance from CCTV to genetic data-gathering and the new forms of subjectivity and citizenship that are forged in such cultures. It studies data bodies and space as domains within which this subjectivity of the vulnerable individual emerges. The book also proposes that we can see a shift within cultures of surveillance where from active participation in the process of surveilling a witness-citizen emerges. The book therefore seeks to alter surveillance as a mere top-down system instead arguing that surveillance is also a mode of engagement with the world enabling trust accountability and eventually a responsible humanitarianism.Printed Pages:240. 101486

4 Pramod K. Nayar
Digital Cool: Life in the Age of New Media
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125047301 / 9788125047308; Hardcover; New; New; 
You email your report, check the position of your stocks, play your favourite Rahman, and upload new patches for your favourite simulation game—all using the same three-inch-by-five device that fits into your palm. You chat, share, play and blog, even check for directions to the new Italian restaurant in town online. Everyday life is now digital. ‘Digital Cool’ is simultaneously about individualisation, with its make-believe detachment (‘Cool’), and the fierce collectivism facilitated by New Media. There’s the young woman waiting for the tube while swishing through the bestseller she’s just bought on her iPad, indifferent to her surroundings; there is also the fury of the mainly online Pink Chaddis campaign of 2009..Printed Pages: 264. 101862

5 Pramod K. Nayar
Reading Culture: Theories, Praxis, Politics
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 076193474X / 9780761934745; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The theory, methods and politics of cultural studies are examined in this book which is concerned with the ways in which public culture reflects the relations between identities, race, gender and class. Adapting a range of theories and approaches, the author demonstrates how a cultural form effectively disseminates meanings - a political act - by marginalizing certain identities, norms, modes of thinking and knowledges while valuing others. The book covers topics as diverse as comic book superheroes, patriotic songs in Hindi films, the projection of 'authenticity' in tourist brochures and the poetics of display in museums.

8 Pramod K. Nayar (Author) & Shiv Visvanathan (Frwd)
States of Sentiment: Exploring the Cultures of Emotion
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125041990 / 9788125041993; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book proposes that our responses to various situations, events and representations are not entirely private, individual and internal. They have a crucial social dimension. Emotions are a result of the internalisation of cultural codes and discourses that inform, and even determine the appropriateness or inappropriateness of emotional responses. We see a terrorist as a threat, a cyclone as worrying, a rags-to-riches story as a feel-good moment. We mourn the sudden death of Michael Jackson, we rejoice in the victory of a triumphant Tendulkar and we react with horror and shock to 9/11. All of these are emotional responses to specific representational strategies that present these people and events in particular ways. These strategies in turn construct our emotional relations to the events and people. Exactly how sentiments of care, passion, desire, pleasure, fear, sympathy or pity are discursively commodified (made a commodity) in the mass media, films, reportage and the other public culture forms today is the subject of this book. It demonstrates how cultures today are getting emotion-driven. The book is organised around four ‘sentiments’—well-being, suffering, aversion and hope. It uses reality TV, hate speech, self-help literature, media coverage of 9/11 and 26/11, autobiographies, websites and films, and blends theoretical insights with elements of innovative inquiry, to show how emotions are packaged and how these emotions then determine social relations itself.Printed Pages: 316. 101866

Virtual Worlds: Culture and Politics in the Age of Cybertechnology
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0761932291 / 9780761932291; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This interdisciplinary cultural study of the new technologies discusses cyberculture as it mediates, and in turn is mediated by, the contexts of globalisation, politics, medical science and war, and the realms of everyday life such as learning, identity, consumption, and leisure. It pays attention to common and visible expressions of technoculture - including music videos, niche marketing, literature, and cosmetic surgery - in order to highlight its distinguishing features. Using a range of insights from theorists such as Donna Haraway, Stuart Hall, Manuel Castells, Paul Virilio and Katherine Hayles, Virtual Worlds explores the dissemination of cybertechnology into the social and political fields.
