The problem of Sikh militancy during the 1980s not only rocked the nation but assumed international significance. A voluminous literature is available under the titles of Punjab problem or crises, all condemning violence. Those on the sides of the state held the militants responsible for violence and those being soft towards the militants fixed the responsibility on the Indian state. But none of these studies focused on the violence per se. What was the nature of violence? Who perpetrated it? And why violence at all?

Randhir Singh (1922-2016) was a great teacher in the classical tradition who theorised and struggled all through his working and academic life to create an egalitarian world. Totality in approach was his sine qua non for comprehending the interconnectivities among disparate elements and the mediations in the pursuit of establishing such equations. Along with the explanation of totality or by way of totality, politics becomes crucial to bring about the desired changes not only though the repudiation of politics per se by being merely a superstructural referential standpoint, but also by enablin...

A leading scholar in early-twentieth-century India, Sir Jadunath Sarkar (1870–1958) was knighted in 1929 and became the first Indian historian to gain honorary membership in the American Historical Association. By the end of his lifetime, however, he had been marginalized by the Indian history establishment, as postcolonial historians embraced alternative approaches in the name of democracy and anti-colonialism. The Calling of History examines Sarkar’s career—and poignant obsolescence—as a way into larger questions about the discipline of history and its public life. Through close rea... View more info

It occurred to me that the vast, human-altered landscapes that I pursued and photographed for over twenty years were only made possible by the discovery of oil and the mechanical advantage of the internal combustion engine. It was then that I began the oil project. Over the next ten years I researched and photographed the largest oil fields I could find. I went on to make images of refineries, freeway interchanges, automobile plants and the scrap industry that results from the recycling of cars. Then I began to look at the culture of oil, th...

In this provocative study, economist Ernesto Screpanti argues that imperialism—far from disappearing or mutating into a benign “globalization”—has in fact entered a new phase, which he terms “global imperialism.” This is a phase defined by multinational firms cut loose from the nation-state framework and free to chase profits over the entire surface of the globe. No longer dependent on nation-states for building a political consensus that accommodates capital accumulation, these firms seek to bend governments to their will and destroy barriers to the free movement of capital.

This book offers a firsthand account of reporting violence in Punjab, once considered toughest assignments for journalists. During the peak of militancy in Punjab from April 1978 to 1995, the journalists were at the receiving end of the morbid State and the trigger-happy melancholic militants. These torturous years were marked by a real fear of the gun, as a large number of editors, reporters and their associates were prey to the marauders in different garbs. It was also a period when information was hard to obtain and write about as the police laced almost each news story with lies and the ap... View more info
