This book is primarily a self-presentation of Indian
sociologists and their recent theoretical and empirical
research endeavours. It offers a convenient point of
departure for reflection on Western Europe and its
international role-modeling function. The book deserves
to be read carefully, not only because it provides an
excellent review of universality, rationality and
diversity in post-colonial India but also because it
shows that it makes sense to translate the western world
of modernization into the categories and images of Indian
capitalist modernization. By approaching the
determinants, mechanisms and consequences of this
translation in contemporary India so comprehensively and
insightfully, it directs our attention towards European
modernization rationale and helps take stock of European
sociological achievements.

Banking in crisis : the rise and fall of British banking
stability, 1800 to the present / John D Turner.--
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2014.
xi, 253p. ,23cm.
ISBN : 9781107609860.
332.10941 TUR 143160
The author shows that there have only been two major
banking crises in Britain during this time - the crises
of 1825-6 and 2007-8. Although there were episodic bouts
of instability in the interim, the banking system was
crisis free. Why was the British banking system stable
for such a long time? And, why did the British banking
system implode in 2008? In answering these questions, the
book explores the long-run evolution of bank regulation,
the role of the Bank of England, bank rescues and the
need to hold shareholders to account.

xiii, 353p. , 23cm.
ISBN : 9781107636897.
336.001 MAR 143161
The essays in this book focus on coercion arising from
the operation of the fiscal system, a major part of the
public sector. Collective choices on fiscal matters
emerge from and have all the essential characteristics of
social interaction, including the necessity to force
unwanted actions on some citizens. This was recognized in
an older tradition in public finance which can still
serve as a starting point for modern work. The
contributors to the volume recognize this tradition, but
add to it by using contemporary frameworks to study a set
of related issues concerning fiscal coercion and economic

Expansionary fiscal contraction : the Thatcher
government-s 1981 budget in perspective / Duncan Needham
and Anthony Hotson.-- Cambridge: Cambridge University

xvi, 251p. , 23cm.
ISBN : 9781107042933.
336.94109048 NEE 143163
In its 1981 Budget, the Thatcher government discarded
Keynesian counter-cyclical policies and cut Britain-s
public sector deficit in the depths of the worst UK
recession since the 1930s. Controversially, the
government argued that fiscal contraction would produce
economic growth. In this book, contributors examine
recently released archives alongside firsthand accounts
from key players within No. 10 Downing Street, HM
Treasury and the Bank of England, to provide the first
comprehensive treatment of this critical event in British
economic history. They assess the empirical and
theoretical basis for expansionary fiscal contraction,
drawing clear parallels with contemporary debates on
austerity in Europe, USA and Japan in the wake of the
recent global financial crisis.

338.47 PET 143135
The slow-down in economic growth and the rise in
unemployment in the 1970s revived some of the
uncertainties experienced by industrialized economies
during the inter-war period. After more than a decade of
stagnation, the period of sustained growth in the thirty
years following the Second World War now seems
increasingly to have been an exceptional phase in an
overall development process still dominated by wide
fluctuations in economic growth rates. This book examines
what it means to live in a period of economic recession
and analyses social patterns in response to the slowing
down of financial and economic growth.

The essays in this book, which lie at the intersection of
the study of literature, social theory, and intellectual
history, locate serious reflections on modernity-s
complexities in the vibrant currents of modern Indian
literature, particularly in the realms of fiction,
poetry, and autobiography. Sudipta Kaviraj shows that
Indian writers did more than adopt new literary trends in
the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. They deployed
these innovations to interrogate fundamental
philosophical questions of modernity.

xxiv, 270p. , 22cm.
ISBN : 9788131605981.

This book discerns the interrelation and interdependence
between the democracy and human rights, and assesses how
grassroots movements could strive for the deepening and
substantialization of democracy in India. Critically
assessing the peoples movements like the Telangana
movement for separate statehood, the book examines how
these movements play a major role in the protection and
promotion of human rights and advancement of democracy.
The book also underlines the significance of the
democratic forms of protests, nature of political
parties/processes, response of the state, and the role of
opinion makers and the underprivileged sections to
interrogate the democracy and human rights. The book
argues that there is a noticeable tension between the
formal democratic parliamentary political process and the
substantive socio-political demands.
