The book provides valuable information about the way
journalism has evolved in India since Independence, the
idealism and missionary zeal of the early pioneers and
-foot-soldiers,- the changing technology and mores of
reportage, the joint resistance by owners and journalists
to the government-s moves to tame the media, and the
shift from the primacy of the editor to that of the
owner, and eventually into the inexorable logic of the
market paradigm of the news media.

In this book, the author explores the return of religion
as a major cause of insecurity in the contemporary world.
He guides readers through the different theoretical
perspectives surrounding the study of religion and
security, arguing that the secular bias that marginalized
the role played by religion in recent times must change
to reflect the realities of the emerging post-secular
international order. Packed with examples from around the
world, the book offers a thoughtful and nuanced
exploration of religion and security through key themes
such as religiously motivated and inspired terrorism and
warfare, the human security of women and gay people in
religiously dominated communities, and the capacity for
religious communities and leaders to heal conflict
through peace building.

This book suggests that the arrival of new consumers of
culture, drawn from the rural middle class and the
unorganized working-class and small business people from
the city further accentuated the process. Whether this
has led to a proper democratization of our society, is
however a different question.

This book presents a set of readings which primarily
focus on the social, political and cultural aspects of
village life. A few readings discuss issues of agrarian
change and the economy of rural India. A comprehensive
introduction provides a detailed historical analysis of
the study of rural India, the changes in rural social
life and the forces shaping life in villages today. The
articles, drawn from writings over four decades (1972 to
2010), cover various features of village society: caste
and community, land and labour, migration, discrimination
and use of common property resources, among others.

This book tracks the evolution of citizen and elite
opinions on economic and cultural issues from the 1970s
to the 2010s-and the impact of these changes on electoral
politics and public policy. Citizen positions on these
cleavages have realigned over time, producing a similar
realignment in the structure of the party systems to
represent these demands. Economic issues remain
important, now joined by divisions on cultural issues as
a backlash to modernization. Assembling an unprecedented
time series of empirical evidence, this study explains
the new forces of elector change in both Europe and the

While economic factors predominantly determine a man’s
participation in employment, the reasons why women work,
or do not work, or whether they work part-time or full-
time, can be diverse and are often rooted in a complex
interplay of economic, cultural, social and personal
factors. In India, as in most other parts of the world,
fewer women participate in employment compared to men.
This is the backdrop against which this book analyses a
wide range of issues from what counts for work to the
economic contribution of women to how gendering of work
has many significant and related consequences. It also
demonstrates how policies and programmes anchored around
data based on national income accounts and/or labour
force surveys seriously disadvantage women in more ways

The essays in this book capture the intense discussions
in India that were debated as problems and questions over
the environment, technology and development. As a
collection, this book proposes a fresh and new analytical
coherence for these essays by resituating them with an
engaging introduction under the broader themes of
criticality and subversion. It address the needs of a
rapidly growing interest in interdisciplinary programmes
and will also carry appeal amongst development and policy
practitioners and those who wish to pursue
interdisciplinary research questions.

Sumit Sarkar, however, changed the face not only of
modern Indian history monographs and textbooks, he also
radically altered the capacity of the historical essay.
As Beethoven stretched the sonata form beyond earlier
conceivable limits, Sarkar can be said to have expanded
the academic essay. In his hands, the shorter form
becomes in miniature both monograph and textbook. The
present collection, which reproduces many of his finest
writings, shows an intellectually scintillating,
sceptical Marxist mind at its sharpest.

The Ganga enjoys a special place in the hearts of

river-s identity. Seamlessly weaving together geography,
ecology and religious history, this lavishly illustrated
volume paints a remarkable portrait of India-s most
sacred and beloved river.
