How does the presence of diversity impact our
understanding of society and formulation of adequate
policies? This collection examines the Indian experience
of diversity by delineating the policies and
institutional arrangements that have been designed to
accommodate different kinds of diversities, and
highlighting the problems that the chosen path has
yielded. The issues being examined include the Uniform
Civil Code, the State-s patronage of languages,
affirmative action in educational institutions, and
minority participation in electoral politics. So far, the
notion of multiculturalism has been addressed by theories
that have emerged from Western societies. This volume
marks a step in the direction of rethinking such
questions in the Indian context.

of bondage. "Our lives are choked with work," he writes.

This book explains how finance replaced manufacturing at
the center of the American economy and how its influence
has seeped into daily life. From corporations operated to
create shareholder value, to banks that became portals to
financial markets, to governments seeking to regulate or
profit from footloose capital, to households with
savings, pensions, and mortgages that rise and fall with
the market, life in post-industrial America is tied to
finance to an unprecedented degree. The book provides a
guide to how we got here and unpacks the consequences of
linking the well-being of society too closely to
financial markets.

This book provides analyses that can help policymakers
develop a framework for managing capital flows that is
consistent with prudent macroeconomic and financial
sector stability. While capital inflows can provide
emerging market economies with invaluable benefits in
pursuing economic development and growth, they can also
pose serious policy challenges for macroeconomic
management and financial sector supervision. The expert
contributors cover a wide range of issues related to
managing capital flows and analyze the experience of
emerging Asian economies in dealing with surges in
capital inflows. They also discuss possible policy
measures to manage capital flows while remaining
consistent with the goals of macroeconomic and financial
sector stability.

This book argues that the shared adjudication model in
which the state splits its adjudicative authority with
religious groups and other societal sources in the
regulation of marriage can potentially balance cultural
rights and gender equality. In this model the civic and
religious sources of legal authority construct, transmit
and communicate heterogeneous notions of the conjugal
family, gender relations and religious membership within
the interstices of state and society. In so doing, they
fracture the homogenized religious identities grounded in
hierarchical gender relations within the conjugal family.
The shared adjudication model facilitates diversity as it
allows the construction of hybrid religious identities,
creates fissures in ossified group boundaries and
provides institutional spaces for ongoing intersocietal

This book explores the modern physicist Niels Bohr-s
philosophical thought, specifically his pivotal idea of
complementarily, with a focus on the relation between the
roles of what he metaphorically calls "spectators" and
"actors." It seeks to spell out the structural and
historical complexity of the idea of complementarity in
terms of different modes of the -spectator-actor-
relation, showing, in particular, that the reorganization
of Bohr-s thought starting from his 1935 debate with
Einstein and his collaborators is characterized by an
extension of the dynamic conception of complementarity
from non-physical contexts to the very field of quantum
theory. Further, linked with this analysis, the book
situates Bohr-s complementarity in contemporary
philosophical context by examining its intersections with
post-Heideggerian hermeneutics as well as Derridean

Which strategy making approach works best in a crisis? In
current literature, the recommendations oscillate between
prediction, control, and practice, but this book focuses
specifically on strategy making in a crisis. In a crisis,
the business landscape is neither stable nor predictable,
resources are scarce rather than abundant, customers
disappear and shareholders revolt, all of which can make
prediction and control very difficult. Drawing on
evidence from philosophy, and on a multi-year case study
of a major multinational, author points to three
different kinds of imaginations and proposes a three-step
model for imaginative strategy making.
