This book makes a new and significant argument that
Indian news media are no longer just observers but active
participants in the events that direct the nation. It
explores the changing role and performance of Indian news
media in the past 25 years by examining their coverage of
some of the landmark events and issues within the context
of the India-s °globalizing- polity, increased
privatisation, new communication technologies and the
rise of individualism.

This book shows that Kantian ethics has practical as well
as philosophical importance.It addresses Kant-s account
of reasoning about action, in particular his
controversial claim that the Categorical Imperative
guides action and is basic to ethics and justice. It also
offers a substantial new introduction and updated
bibliography, and will be valuable for a wide readership
in Kant studies and those studying ethics.

Debating Vivekananda juxtaposes an array of contrasting
views that examine the life, thoughts and works of
Vivekananda from various and often opposing, vantage
points. Was he -the resounding voice of a new and
confident India- or merely a -whimper of the wounded
pride of a subject people-? The various essays, in this
volume critically examine the extent of his influence,
the source of his thoughts, his relationship with
Ramakrishna Paramhansa and his views on women, science
and communalism. The book thus serves as a platform for a
debate to unfold - a debate that is informed by logical
arguments instead of the creation of personality myths.
The different perspectives allow one to engage with and
at the same time rigorously assess the ideas of a modern

This book offers an intimate glimpse into the microcosmic
world of "hybrid environments." Focusing on chars-the
part land, part-water, low-lying sandy masses that exist
within the riverbeds in the floodplains of lower Bengal,-
the authors show how, both as real-life examples and as
metaphors, chars straddle the conventional categories of
land and water, and how people who live on them fluctuate
between legitimacy and illegitimacy.

This book is a valuable attempt to listen and learn from
the memories and significant moments of fieldwork done by
anthropologists, sociologists, and even historians from
South Asia. The essays lead towards a deeper
understanding of concerns of fieldwork located in various
field sites across South Asia without assuming or
applying fixed normative rules for the whole region. In
the process, the volume allows the reader to have an
option to locate or relocate ethnographic or other forms
of texts in the context of growing methodological
contours and dilemmas in the social science.

The diversity of methods used and perspectives displayed
in intellectual property law scholarship is now quite
vast. This book brings together scholars from around the
globe to discuss these methods and provide insights into
how they are best used. The book portrays the
multiplicity of approaches available to a scholar of IP,
and demonstrates how our understanding of intellectual
property law is enriched by (among other things) use of
historical, comparative and empirical analysis. It also
highlights the emergence in the US of law and economics
as one of the dominant paradigms through which to
consider intellectual property law. But it also
illustrates how learning may usefully be imported from
other fields, such as law and society, political economy,
and international relations, as well as less obvious
quarters such as ethics and happiness research.

concentration of ownership that is intrinsic in the

contemporary global copyright landscape and its futures.
It draws upon the current narratives of copyright as
produced by corporate, government, and political actors
and frames these narratives as language games within a
global political project to define how information and
culture will be shared and exchanged in the future. The
text problematizes the relationship of the state to

tools that can be employed to protect the rights of

Are Africa-s world markets really contributing to
development across the continent for individuals, nations
and regions? This is the key question posed by the author
in this provocative book, in which she argues that all
too often the voices of African traders are obscured amid
a blizzard of statistical analysis. However, it is these
very voices - from those operating on the ground as
formal or informal traders - that must be listened to in
order to form a true understanding of the impact trade
regimes have on these individuals and their communities.
Featuring a wealth of oral histories from across sub-
Saharan Africa and beyond, including Africans in China,
Africa-s World Trade offers a unique insight into how the
complexity of international trade agreements can shape
the everyday lives of ordinary Africans.
