A Social History of Christianity: North-west India Since 1800
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195690451 / 9780195690453; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Christian community in India emerged from an Indian rather than a foreign or an imperial context. Its internal dynamics were shaped far more by Indian social realities than by missionary designs. This book presents, for the first time, a connected and comprehensive social history of Christianity, in north-west India, the region which the British called 'The Punjab and its Dependencies'. Today it comprises the Indian states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, the Union Territories of Delhi and Chandigarh, and the Pakistani Punjab and North-West Frontier Province. This book covers the history of the north-west up to 1947 after which it focuses on developments within India and deals only indirectly with Pakistan. It is arranged chronologically. Each chapter is set off by important events in the region, starting from the turn of the nineteenth century when Ranjit Singh came to power in Lahore (1799) and the British in Delhi (1803). The author highlights the events of 1857 that had a traumatic effect on the Christians; how Christians later responded to the rise, first of religious reform/revivalist movements, and then of nationalist as well as communal politics in the north-west. The closing chapters discuss the transfer of power within churches from foreign missionaries to Indians, the proliferation of churches, and the ongoing struggles of the Christian community following independence. Throughout the book, the author pays special attention to the Christian community’s caste composition—the ways in which caste status and social mobility affected intra and inter-community relations—religious diversity, uneven demographic distribution, as well as its development both as a community and as a religious movement in the region. 026132

Do the Poor Matter Enough: A Comparative Study of European Aid for Poverty Reduction in India
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8170229146 / 9788170229148; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book, based on the study of 33 projects in India aided by six European donors. The European Commission, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden and United Kingdom seeks to examine the aid programmes from the perspective of poverty reduction. It conceptualises poverty alleviation as a multi-dimensional phenomenon which involves changes in livelihoods, resources, knowledge and rights, as also it analyses the manner and means through which the donors aid programmes are organised and implemented. The study also assesses the donor strategies, the donor recipient dialogue, the recipient perception of aid as well as the effectiveness in terms of poverty reduction of the programmes and a number of selected interventions in nine different sectors, namely watershed, irrigation, forestry, drinking water, primary health, primary education, women training, urban housing and self-help projects. This book is useful for those engaged in the formulation and implementation of poverty alleviation programmes, academics working in the field of aid and development, NGOs as well as other development activists. It also serves as a useful supplementary text for courses in higher education and specialised training programmes with focus on aid policy, project and programme design, poverty reduction, government aiddonor relations and so on.
