This book investigates the Internet as a site of
political contestation in the Indian context. It widens
the scope of the public sphere to social media, and
explores its role in shaping the resistance and protest
movements on the ground. The book also explores the role
of the Internet, a global technology, in framing debates
on the idea of the nation state, especially India, as
well as diplomacy and international relations. It also
discusses the possibility of whether Internet can be used
as a tool for social justice and change, particularly by
the underprivileged, to go beyond caste, class, gender
and other oppressive social structures.

This book explores how political culture shapes social
media interactions in civic participation, arguing that
social media usage is informed by context-specific civil
and political culture. It critically addresses issues
within the concept of political culture and develops the
concept of -communicative civic-ness-. This concept seeks
to aid a better-informed debate about the capacity of
social media to support the pluralistic discussions that
underpin deliberative democratic processes. It also
provides useful information and understanding to third
sector organisations and policy-makers regarding forms of

The Sociology of postmarxism / Richard Howson.-- London:

(Routledge advances in sociology , 216).
ISBN : 9780415958004.
306.2 HOW 146832
This book develops key postmarxist arguments in an
engaging and sociologically applicable way. Indeed,
through a threefold method of analysis, Howson first
unpacks the relationship between ‘the social’ and
‘the political’ by analysing key allied theories to
show where the points of connection occur. This is then
followed by an insightful analysis of the key features of
postmarxist theory such as antagonism and the inevitability of
social dislocation, the political importance of hegemony, and the
empty signifier thesis and equivalence to show how such theory
can be applied at a sociological level. Finally, through the
use of sociological categories such as masculinities, migration
and social capital, the foregoing theoretical analyses are synthesised
to show the social nature of postmarxism and particularly in the context
of aspiration and co-operation.

planning practice and education. The five sections of this book discuss
planning and the state, economy and economic actors, new drivers of urban
change, landscapes of citizenship, and planning pedagogy.

economists, sociologists and environmental scientists, as well as
practitioners across a range of urban sectors wishing to engage with new
planning theory and practice from India and across the global South.

constituents of Delhi’s urban landscape. The book
provides a lens through which to examine the development
path of a mega-city, which can be used as a guide in the
development of emerging urban centers. Furthermore, the
strengths and weaknesses of Delhi-s built environment are
critically analyzed, with consideration to the role of
the market, finance and policy over time. This book not
only provides valuable insight into the physical
evolution of Delhi and its surrounds, but it also asks
broader questions about how people, power and politics
interact with urban environments.

This book presents banking system risk modeling clearly
within a theoretical framework. The book explores single
bank risk, common bank exposures, and contagion, and how
these apply on a systemic level. Zedda approaches these
simulation methods logically by providing the basic
building blocks of modeling and simulation, and then
delving further into the individual techniques that make
up a systems model. In addition, the author provides
clear and detailed explanations of the foundational
research into the mathematical and legal concepts used to
analyze banking risk problems, measures and data for
representing the main banking risk sources, and the major
problems researchers are likely to encounter.

The distinguished authors and editors of this book
explore how entrepreneurship study can privilege certain

collective forms of organization and exchange as problematic.
This book gives voice to other entrepreneurial subjectivities

the heart of the topic. This challenging collection seeks to
further the momentum for alternate analyses of the field, and
to promote the growing voice of critical entrepreneurship studies.

Capitalism without Capital shows that the growing importance
of intangible assets has also played a role in some of the big
economic changes of the last decade. The rise of intangible
investment is, Jonathan Haskel and Stian Westlake argue, an
underappreciated cause of phenomena from economic inequality
to stagnating productivity.
