In recent years exclusionary policies of the Indian state
have raised questions concerning social harmony and economic
progress. During the last few decades the
emergence of identity politics has given new lease of
life to exclusionary practices in the country. Castes,
communities and ethnic groups have re-emerged in almost
every sphere of social life .The book shows that a shift
has taken place in the discourse on inclusion and
exclusion. Chapters by experts in their fields explore
issues of inclusion and exclusion that merit special
attention such as Dalit identity, ethnicity,
territoriality and minorities. Authors raise questions
about developmental programs of the state aimed at making India
more inclusive and discuss development projects initiated to
alleviate socio-economic conditions of the urban poor in the cities.

branding and pricing, and individual vs. communal agency then
continuing with a reconsideration of role configurations as they affect
consumption, examining in particular the ramifications of familial,
gender,ethnic and national aspects of consumers- lived experiences.

In this book, the author exposes the infuriating truth
about modern work life: even as organizations allow

kill their employees, those policies do not enhance
productivity or the bottom line. Instead, they diminish
employee engagement, increase turnover, reduce job
performance and drive up health costs.Exploring a range
of important topics, including layoffs, health
insurance,work-family conflict, autonomy and why people remain
in toxic environments, he offers guidance and practical solutions
all of us employees, employers and the government can use to enhance

challenging business environment, this book challenges
the assumption that the continuing success of global
brands in Asia is a given. The first part examines the
challenge multinational corporations face in balancing
brand consistency with local effectiveness. In the
second part, attention shifts to Asian company brands,
where the focus on branding has been relatively muted until now.

This book addresses concerns about the theory-practice
gap so often discussed by marketing scholars, and indeed
reframes this -gap- by asking -how is marketing theory
performative?- How does marketing theory shape action?
Who uses it in practice and to what effects? The book
begins by considering what performativity is and how
this concept is used in the marketing literature. It then
considers three themes concerning the performativity of
marketing that emerge from the contributions, before presenting
ten empirical studies that ask how, why, and to what effect
marketing theories are used and -performed- in marketing practice.
The book also summarises the implications of three themes and
sketches research areas for further developing our understanding of the
performativity of marketing.
