of the pretensions of philosophical rationalism, remain
hugely influential on contemporary philosophers. This

interplay of distinct expressions of time and history,
innovative reformulations of caste and Hinduism, and
discrete engagements with state and nation. This serves
to unravel the wider entanglements of religion, history,

The partition of the Indian subcontinent, the collapse of
the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia, the reunification of
Germany, the continuing feud between two Koreas, the
Irish peace process, the case of Israel/Palestine and the
lingering division of Cyprus, have together given rise to
a huge body of literature. However, studies of partitions
have usually focused on individual cases. This innovative
volume uses comparative analysis to fill the gap in

prevent the reoccurrence of a currency crisis like 1997.
It thus, assesses the progress achieved thus far in

which volatility in equity and bond market returns,
driven by financial turmoil originating at both the
regional and global levels, spills over into emerging

employs bi-variate regression and ordinary least squares
(OLS) estimation to examine the effect of FDI on gross

of 1974-2011. The results show that FDI is positively
correlated with GDP growth and has a positive effect on

This book explores the material, cultural and moral

rule in the British Empire in the late nineteenth and

political project, namely the drive to regulate the
obscene in late nineteenth-century Britain, was
transformed from a national into a global and imperial
venture and then re-localized in two different colonial
contexts, India and Australia, to serve decidedly
different ends. This book illustrates that it is in fact
only through a comparative and transnational framework
that it is possible to elucidate both the temporalist
nature of colonialism and the political, racial and moral
contradictions that sustained imperial and colonial

legislative/administrative measures to combat it. Tracing
the roots of anti-corruption movements to the JP Movement
of the 1970s, it presents an in-depth coverage of the
recent protests led by Anna Hazare and Ramdev and the
emergence of the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party.The
book focuses on cases of large-scale embezzlement and the
popular reaction against it and shows how corruption
manifests itself in the Indian social, economic and

state institutions and a vigilant civil society in

This book is a critical study of the relationship between
bodies, memories and communal witnessing. With a focus on
the aesthetics and politics of queer postcolonial
narratives, this book examines how unspeakable traumas of
colonial and familial violence are communicated through
the body. Exploring multisensory epistemologies as queer
and anti-colonial acts of resistance, the author offers
an original engagement with collective and public forms
of bearing witness that may emerge in response to

This book encapsulates discussions under the rubric of
-frontiers- in multiple contexts. The essays here
underline the range of interests and approaches that
marked Professor Richards- illustrious career - frontiers
and state building, frontiers and environmental change,
cultural frontiers, frontiers, trade and drugs, and
frontiers and world history. The volume discusses issues
from medieval to early modern South Asian history. It
also reflects a concern for large-scale global processes
and for the detailed specificities of each historical
case as evident in Professor Richards- work.

ISBN : 9788190618649.

This book examines the tension between the -nation- idea
as a necessary language of legitimacy with which to claim
liberation, and its role in disciplining people and their
identities in India in the name of national liberation.
Focusing on the anticolonial struggle and the subsequent
-Nehruvian- period, it seeks to show the ambiguities,
exclusions and consequent dangers of nationalism, and the
ways in which scholarship and politics conspire to reify
nationalist frameworks. It explodes spurious claims to
-indigenous traditions-, and argues for a consistent
separation of the categories -state- and -nation-.

The British divided and quit India in 1947. The partition
of India and the creation of Pakistan uprooted entire
communities and left unspeakable violence in its trail.
This book tells the story of partition through the events
that led up to it, the terrors that accompanied it, to
migration and resettlement. The book also explores the
legacies of partition which continue to resonate today in
the fractured lives of individuals and communities, and
more broadly in the relationship between India and
Pakistan and the ongoing conflict over contested sites.It
reflects on the general implications of partition as a
political solution to ethnic and religious conflict.
