ISBN : 9780804770040.

This book utilizes collective action as a unifying
concept, arguing that collective-action problems lie at
the foundation of market success, market failure,
economic development, and the motivations for policy.The
author draws on information economics, social preference
theory, cognition theory, institutional economics, as
well as political and policy theory to develop this
approach. The text uses classical, evolutionary, and
epistemic game theory, along with basic social network
analysis, as modeling frameworks. These models
effectively bind the ideas presented, generating a
coherent theoretic approach to political economy that
stresses sometimes overlooked implications.

This book examines how English became an Indian language.
The author rejects the idea that English was fully formed
before its life in India or that it was imposed from
without. Rather, by drawing attention to sexuality and
power, she argues that the English language was produced
through conflicts over caste, religion, and class. The
language was shaped by the sexual experiences of Indians
and by native attempts to discipline the normative sexual
subject. Focusing on the years between 1850 and 1930, she
scrutinizes the English-education project as Indians
gained the power to direct it themselves. She shows how
concerns over linguistic change were popularly voiced in
a sexual idiom, how English and the vernacular were
separated through the vocabulary of sexual difference,
and how the demand for matrimony naturalized the social
location of the English language.
