The State in India offers an insightful overview of the literature on the state and showcases the interplay of state and society in new sites: processes of globalisation, assertions of sovereignty, and across the regional and local. It interrogates how the state can shape concepts, ideas and institutions central to our lives. The collected essays view the state through different lenses: nation, democracy, rights, security, legitimacy, hegemony, decentralisation, welfare and violence. They study how social, symbolic and political orders are deeply infused with structures of gender, caste, class and regional hierarchies. Thereby, the volume questions the terrain that identifies and gives meaning to our received understanding of the state. Printed Pages: 385
