Recasting Caste confronts the mainstream sociology of
caste at its root: Louis Dumont-s Homo Hierarchicus and
its main source, Max Weber-s distinction between class
and status. Conventional wisdom on caste is idealist, and
most students of the subject therefore exaggerate ritual
homogeneity and deflect attention from intracaste
differentiation and inequality. In contrast, by focusing
on intracaste differences, Professor Singh demonstrates
that caste hierarchy is grounded in a monopoly of land

Indian diaspora has had a complex and multifaceted role
in catalyzing, justifying and promoting a transformed
urban landscape in India. Focusing on Kolkata/ Calcutta,
this book analyses the changing landscapes over the past
two decades of one of the world-s most fascinating and
iconic cities. Previously better known due to its post-
Independence decline into overcrowded poverty, pollution
and despair, in recent years it has experience a
revitalization that echoes India-s renaissance as a whole
in the new millennium. This book weaves together
narratives of migration and diasporas, postmodern
developmentalism and neoliberal urbanism, and identity
and belonging in the Global South. It examines the rise
of middle-class environmental initiatives and Kolkata-s
attempts to reclaim its earlier global status.

This book compares and contrasts Muslim and Sikh
communities in pre- and post-Partition India. Mapping the
evolving discourse on minority rights, the author looks
at the overlaps between the Constitutional and the
majoritarian discourse being articulated in the public
sphere and poses questions about the guaranteeing of
minority rights. The book suggests that through
historical ruptures and breaks , communities oscillate
between being minorities and nations. Combining archival
material with ethnographic fieldwork, it studies the
identity groups and their vexed relationship to the ideas
of nation and nationalism. It captures meanings
attributed to otherwise politically loaded concepts such
as nation, nation-state and minority rights in the
everyday world of Muslims and Sikhs and thus tries to
make sense of the patterns of accommodation, adaptation
and contestation in the life-world.

This book explores various aspects of contemporary
capitalism in India. Using field research at a local
level to engage with larger issues, it raises questions
about the varieties and processes of capitalism, and
about the different roles played by the state. It
demonstrates the continuing relevance of the comparative
political economy of development for the analysis of
contemporary capitalism. Beginning with an exploration of
capitalism in agriculture and rural development, it goes
on to discuss rural labour, small town entrepreneurs, and
technical change and competition in rural and urban
manufacturing, highlighting the relationships between
agricultural and non-agricultural firms and employment.

This collection of articles by noted environmental
historian Richard P Tucker is an attempt to trace Indian
forest history from the colonial era to its post-
Independence legacy. It is a study of the evolution of
forest policy at the national level, in counterpoint with
management at the provincial and local levels, primarily
in the Himalayan districts. A Forest History of India
highlights the two main strains of conflict that
characterize the evolution of professional forestry in
India. First, the tension between the subsistence needs
of the local population and the commercial needs of the

India is one of the fastest growing countries in the
world but high economic growth has been accompanied by
social stratification and widening economic disparity
between states. This study provides a comprehensive
picture of uneven growth and development within regions
in India. Inclusive growth, broadly defined as rapid
growth benefiting every section of society, has been the
main strategy pursued by the present government of India.
While the existing literature on inclusive growth tends
to examine the trend and extent of economic inequality
over years, or discusses inclusive growth in a wide range
of social and economic areas, this book, building on the
findings of Inclusiveness in India.

Atlee issues a summons to Ray to return home to Clanton,
to discuss the details of the family estate. Ray
reluctantly heads south, but the family meeting does not
take place. The Judge dies too soon, and in doing so
leaves behind a shocking secret which Ray believes only
he knows. Until it becomes clear that someone else knows
