Seller ID: 108549

ISBN: 8174365060

Condition: New


Quite distinct from the abundant literature available on Mahatma Gandhi, this historical biography attempts to articulate the historiography of India's freedom struggle, of which Gandhi was undoubtedly the central figure. Relooking at key issues and themes that have been raised in the research conducted over the past few decades, this is an interpretative essay that seeks to contextualize Gandhi and his ideology of ahimsa and satyagraha. Instead of focusing merely on Gandhi's personal life, Prof Bidyut Chakrabarty conceptualizes the evolution of his ideas in the context of anti-colonial nation... View more info

This book looks at the evolution of coalition politics in India, both at the national and provincial levels, with the modern Indian polity having emerged as an example of the phenomenon par excellence. This has come about in spite of the commonly held views of the Indian political experience as a single dominant party system splintering into a multi-party coalition. Not only was the Congress Party a social as well as ideological coalition, even the cabinet government in the initial post-independence years was constituted on coalition principles. The book argues that the bulk of the Indian part... View more info

Constitutionalizing India: An Ideational Project

By: Bidyut Chakrabarty (Ed.)

Price: $26.50

Publisher: New Delhi, Oxford University Press: 2018

Seller ID: 900624

ISBN: 0199487626


It is widely believed that the 1950 Constitution of India is largely borrowed from the 1935 Government of India Act. However, Constitutionalizing India argues, to the contrary, that the Indian Constitution is an ideational project in which competing notions of ‘indigenous’ influences and their ‘alien’ counterparts converged to contribute to the fashioning of the Constitution. Documenting the fierce debates between liberalism, enlightenment, and the Gandhian idea of Swaraj, the book provides a new narrative of constitutionalization of India. It reflects on the efforts of the founding f... View more info
