Gradual evolution of the state of independent India has been divided into three inter-related phases: the nationalist leadership during Phase I (1947-1991) had made every effort to build a modern, democratic, secular, capitalist state of India; during Phase II (1991-2014), the ruling classes had abandoned the earlier independent path of capitalist development in favour of integration with transnational finance capital and also opted for American model of market-led capitalism. What are the explanations for these ‘shifts’ from Phase I to Phase II? The third phase beginning with 2014 has wit... View more info

In writing this account of the expansion of British power beyond the seas the Author has tried to trace the origin of development of some of the many Imperial problems which citizens are called upon to face to-day.

Any attempt to link history to the events of the present is liable to many dangers; but any value that such a book as this m... View more info

Chaity Das moves away from India- and Pakistan-centric descriptions of the War of Liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, focusing on the men and women who suffered in the war. She examines and analyses war memoirs and testimonials, and untapped fictional and non-fictional accounts. In her depiction of the deeply gendered universe of war, the obscure borders between perpetrators and victims become visible. By analysing the works of Akhtaruzzaman Elias, Tahmima Anam, Intizar Husain, Kamila Shamsie, and Sorayya Khan, Das reveals the traumas of the past lying unburied under the nationalistic histories ...

How did British rule in India transform persons from lower social classes? Could Indians from such classes rise in the world by marrying Europeans and embracing their religion and customs?

The family which consisted of two untouchable brothers both of whom married Eurasian women became wealthy as distillers in the local community.

The author deals with the theme in the language of daily experience and with a view to practical needs.Inter-alia, the first part briefly touches upon the religious needs and ideals of humanity--often vestiges of great truths that suggest a lost inheritance of knowledge--perceived by poets and philosophers, expressed by them beautifully but dark...

The area of Tibet is large. Intercourse of one part with another is restricted, for the country is difficult and the means of travel are primitive. It follows that manners and customs vary in different districts and provinces. So a custom or interpretation need not be condemned as inaccurate because another sojouner has seen or heard it different elsewhere. The present book is an attempt to speak about the life of the people in their own homes, a miscellany of facts, and occassional ideas to clothe those facts, are all that this book can offer.

Caste and gender are complex markers of difference, hierarchy, and inequality. They have rarely been addressed together in the context of colonial India. The Gender of Caste rethinks the history of caste from a gendered perspective by exploring its connections with print–public–popular culture. Charu Gupta shows that the creation by elites of hegemonic print and literary practices involved the operation of caste and gender in tandem. Caste and gender constituted society in vital ways and caste was central to how gender was reproduced. Deriving her material from Uttar Pradesh a century ago... View more info

Literature as History, between its two seemingly opposite spectrums, puts forth an idea of unusual convergence between the fields of literature and history. It begins by showing how literary material — since the Sangam period of Tamil literary Renaissance in the first millennium up to the very recent globally acclaimed Indo-Anglian literature — has reflected the twists and turns of history. Sometimes it highlights simply the life lived by the people in their everyday contentment and misery; sometimes it is the Sufiana tariqa (the Sufi way) of syncretic spiritualism (tassawuf), and sometime...

Seller ID: 900605

ISBN: 0199477779


This book reformulates the meaning of nationalism in India by focusing on Dalit imagination and politics during the nationalist movement. Dalits, as marginalized subjects, envisioned themselves as equal citizens and demanded justice, equality, and dignity as preconditions for independence. By illuminating the overlooked participation of Dalits in the freedom struggle, the book also attempts to provide a dialogic interface between Dalit pasts and the intellectual and political debates in contemporary India.
