1 Sudipta Kaviraj and Sunil Khilnani (eds)
Civil Society: History and Possibilities
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 8175961082 / 9788175961081; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Civil society is one of the most used - and abused - concepts in current political thinking. In this important collection of essays, the concept is subjected to rigorous analysis by an international team of contributors, all of whom seek to encourage the historical and comparative understanding of political thought. The volume is divided into two parts : the first section analyses the meaning of civil society in different theoretical traditions of western philosophy. In the second section, contributors consider the theoretical and practical contexts in which the notion of civil society has been invoked in Asia, Africa and Latin America. These essays demonstrate how an influential Western idea like civil society is itself altered and innovatively modified by the specific contexts of intellectual and practical life in the societies of the South. Contents Part I. Theoretical Traditions in the West: 1. The development of civil society Sunil Khilnani 2. Concepts of civil society in pre-modern Europe Anthony Black 3.

4 Sudipta Kaviraj
The Imaginary Institution of India: Politics and Ideas
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243571 / 9788178243573; Softcover; New; 
Sudipta Kaviraj has long been recognized as among India_ ?s most thoughtful and wide-ranging political thinkers and analysts, and one of the subtlest and most learned writers on Indian politics in recent times. Paradoxically, this has remained something of a state secret, because Kaviraj_ ?s writings on these subjects have remained scattered in learned journals, many of which remain difficult to access. So the present volume fills a most important gap in the literature on politics and political thought in South Asia. Among Kaviraj_ ?s many strengths is his quite exceptional ability to position Indian politics within the frameworks of political philosophy in the West alongside perspectives from Indian history and indigenous political thought. The writings collected here range over a wide terrain, including studies of the peculiar nature of Indian democracy; the specificities of the regimes of Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi; political culture in Independent India; the construction of colonial power; the relationship between state, society, and discourse in India; the structure of nationalist discourse; language and identity formation in Indian contexts; the relation of development with democracy and democratic functioning; and the interface of religion, politics, and modernity in South Asia. This volume will be indispensable for every student and scholar of South Asian politics, history, and sociology. Printed Pages: 328. 101990

5 Sudipta Kaviraj
The Trajectories of the Indian State: Politics and Ideas
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243520 / 9788178243528; Softcover; New; 
Sudipta Kaviraj has long been recognized as among India’s most thoughtful and wide-ranging political thinkers and analysts, one of the subtlest and most learned writers on Indian politics. Ironically, this has remained something of a state secret because Kaviraj’s writings are scattered and not easy to acess as a connected body. So the present volume—like its predecessor The Imaginary Institution of India—fills a vital gap in South Asian political thought. Among Kaviraj’s many strengths is his exceptional ability to position Indian politics within the frameworks of Western political philosophy alongside perspectives from indigenous political thought. In order to understand relations between the state and social groups, or between dominant and subaltern communities, Kaviraj says it is necessary to first historicize the study of Indian politics. Deploying the historical method, he looks at the precise character of Indian social groups, the nature of political conflicts, the specific mechanisms of social oppression, and many related issues.Printed Pages: 290. 101991
