1 T.K. Oommen
Crisis and Contention in Indian Society
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2005; 076193359X / 9780761933595; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book analyses those contentious issues currently confronting India's society and polity and which are threatening to assume crisis proportions if not tackled properly. Its central thrust is to problematize the societal dimensions that shape these issues and cause crises, and suggests solutions to these difficult problems. The author identifies seven 'internal threats' which are in opposition to the democratic ethos. These are: " Secessionist movements that question the legitimacy of the Indian state; " Irredentist movements that do not accept the artificial vivisection of tribal or linguistic communities across different states; " Inadequate autonomy conceded to the states by the central government; " Threats faced by inhabitants in certain regions where a disproportionate number of immigrants tend to dominate them; " Threats posed by Hindu fundamentalists to minority religious communities labelled as cultural aliens; " Discrimination against traditionally oppressed castes; " Elite hegemony and patriarchal hegemony which between them subordinate women and the less well off. The author maintains that these threats can be contained by providing appropriate political and cultural autonomy within the federal framework. He advocates the endorsement of a set of democratic values that incorporates a shared vision of the nation and its polity and society. Printed Pages: 256. 028126

Knowledge and Society: Situating Sociology and Social Anthropology
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195687752 / 9780195687750; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This collection of essays by T.K. Oommen emphasizes the importance of contextualization in the production and dissemination of knowledge, and discusses the controversy regarding data collection techniques among sociologists and social anthropologists. It argues that there is an organic relationship between the nature of the themes studied and the methods invoked; the nature and characteristics of the universe studied and the methods employed; and that no method is inherently superior or inferior but they are contextually relevant or irrelevant. When the two cognate disciplines of sociology and social anthropology emerged to meet the needs and aspirations of Europe, the former investigated European societies and the latter studied those societies Europe colonized. What changes occurred to these western transplants outside Europe, particularly in India, is a principal concern of this volume. Divided into two parts, the first looks into problems faced in adapting western concepts, theories, methods, and techniques of research to the Indian situation. Abandoning both universalization and indigenization, the book opts for contextualization to meet the specific challenges in apprehending social reality in India. The second part deals with the different avatars of sociology and social anthropology during colonialism, cold war, and the current global age. The implications of internationalization of sociology and 'sociology for one world' are examined. The shifting frontiers of the two disciplines between the Old Worlds of Europe, Asia, and Africa and the New World 'Americas and Australia' are identified and their implications analysed. 021301
