4 Social Theory CRITICAL SOCIAL THEORY Craig Browne University of Sydney In this accomplished, sophisticated and up-to-date account of the state of critical social theory today, Craig Browne explores the key concepts in critical theory (like critique, ideology, and alienation), and crucially, goes on to relate them to major contemporary developments such as globalization, social conflict and neo-liberal capitalism. Critical theory here is not solely the work of Adorno, Horkheimer, Marcuse and Habermas. The book begins with the Frankfurt School but uses this as a base to then explore more contemporary figures such as Nancy Fraser, Axel Honneth, Luc Boltanski, Cornelius Castoriadis, Ulrich Beck, Anthony Giddens, Pierre Bourdieu and Hannah Arendt. A survey of critical social theory for our times, this is an essential guide for students wishing to grasp a critical understanding of social theory in the modern world. A New Nexus of Social Change? / System Integration and Social Disintegration / From the Critique of Objectification to a New Conception of Alienation / Postmodernism, Ideology and Rationality / The End of Immanent Critique? / Hope, Critique and Utopia / Civil Solidarity and Social Struggles / Positive Liberty and Social Justice / Conclusion pages Hardback ( ) Paperback ( ) SOCIAL THEORY FOR TODAY Making Sense of Social Worlds Alex Law University of Abertay, Dundee Social Theory for Today guides students through the turns of past and present social theory as it attempts to wrestle with a recurring sense of crisis in social relations and social theory. Drawing on both classical and contemporary sources, Alex Law provides readers with a firm grasp of competing perspectives. Too often, social theories attempt to dominate the field by casting rival theorists, past and present, as deluded fools, while the more familiar big names in social theory are subject to ever-increasing commentary that runs in ever-decreasing circles. This survey of social theory and crisis lessens the temptation to engage in internal theoretical polemics and esoteric wordplay. Social theory must become practical and specific if it is to become a means of orientation for uncertain times.

The explosion of interest in the notion of identity across popular, political and academic domains of practice since the 1960s does not represent the simple popularization of an older term, as is widely assumed, but rather, the invention of an idea. Identity and Capitalism explores the emergence and evolution of the idea of identity in the cultural, political and social contexts of contemporary capitalist societies. Against the common supposition that identity always mattered, this book shows that what we now think of routinely as personal identity actually only emerged with the explosion of consumption in the late 20th century. Historicising 'Identity' / 'Identity' A Keyword Analysis / Cultural Materialism and the Social Logic of Capitalism / A Pre-History of the Idea of Identity in Capitalist Societies / Identity Politics, Globalising Capitalism and the Crisis of Identity / Personal Identity and the Consumer Society / Identity and Capitalism in the Twenty-First Century pages Hardback ( ) Paperback ( ) CULTURAL RELATIVISM AND INTERNATIONAL POLITICS Derek Robbins University of East London Through historical studies of some of the work of Montesquieu, Comte, Durkheim, Boas, Morgenthau, Aron and Bourdieu, Derek Robbins examines the changing and competing conceptualizations of the political and the social in the Western European intellectual tradition. He suggests that we are now experiencing a new dissociation of sensibility in which political thought and its consequences in action have become divorced from social and cultural experience. Developing further the ideas of Bourdieu which he has presented in books and articles over the last 20 years, Robbins argues that we need to integrate the recognition of cultural difference with the practice of international politics by accepting that the field of international political discourse is a social construct which is contingent on encounters between diverse cultures.

5 Social Theory THE POSTEMOTIONAL BULLY Stjepan Mestrovic Texas A&M University Bullying and hazing have sparked interest and discussion in recent years Mestrovic here brings classical as well as contemporary social theory to bear on this discussion. Thorstein Veblen defined the predatory barbarian as the social type, enshrined by modernity, who prefers to use force over peaceable means. At the other extreme, Marcel Mauss wrote about the spirit of the gift and its obligations as the fundamental basis of social life. Mestrovic traces this opposition through a host of modernist and postmodernist thinkers and theories. He introduces the concept of post-emotionalism as an alternative to both of these major bodies of social theory and uses three case studies to illustrate the qualitative changes in bullying and hazing. The Problem / Modernity as a Bully / Postmodernism as Negation of the Gift / Postemotionalism Illustrated / Abu Ghraib and Postemotional Society / Driven to Suicide by Bullying / Jury Selection: Over as Soon as it Started / Racial Slurs Postemotionalized into Nicknames and Terms of Endearment / The Social Disorganization at the Outpost / Beaten to Death / Conclusions: Where Do We Go from Here? SAGE SWIFTS pages Hardback ( ) SECONDS WITH STJEPAN MESTROVIC If you could have a conversation with any sociologist from the past, who would it be? It would be Emile Durkheim - whose real name was David Durkheim, and who changed his name to Emile later in order to hide his ethnic background. Durkheim s life was dramatic: descended from several generations of rabbis of German descent, he grew up in the war zone that was Alsace-Lorraine at the time and struggled to make it to the top of French academe. Biographers who label him a French positivist do him and sociology an injustice. Which sociologists working today inspire you? I like the sociologists who make me think and can t be classified under any ism, such as Keith Tester, Jean Baudrillard, David Riesman, Steve Hall, Chris Rojek, George Ritzer. What advice would you give a sociology student in 2015? I tell students to find a theorist who speaks to them, and to engage emotionally as well as intellectually with sociologists as well as social issues. Social theory is more than a batch of abstractions. It is the result of the personal drama of individual sociologists confronting a particular society in a particular place and time. What was the most enjoyable aspect of writing The Postemotional Bully? It was reflecting back on the exciting discussions I have with my students. I use many of the examples from those discussions (films, books, cultural icons) as illustrations of theory in my book. And the hardest part? Honestly, there wasn t a hard part. It was fun to write.

10 Research Methods & Methodology COVERT RESEARCH The Art, Politics and Ethics David Calvey Manchester Metropolitan University There is a both a fear and fascination with undercover research in the social sciences. It is an emotive and controversial field which is equated with deception and transgression in an era of increasing ethical regimentation. This book explores the roots of covert research, including the classic exemplars, as well examining its contemporary dispersed place in the social sciences. Recent developments and links to auto-ethnography, cyber-lurking and investigative journalism are explored. David Calvey uses a diverse variety of case study materials, including his work on bouncers in the night-time economy. He argues that covert research has a creative and robust tradition and role in the social community rather than a maligned and submerged one, and that covert research needs to be rehabilitated and appropriately used. Covert Research should ultimately become part of the critical imagination and methodological toolkit for social science students.

24 Sociology & Social Theory CASTE, DISCRIMINATION, AND EXCLUSION IN MODERN INDIA Vani Kant Borooah Chair, Applied Economics, University of Ulster, Nidhi S Sabharwal National University of Educational Planning and Administration, New Delhi, Dilip G Diwakar, Vinod Kumar Mishra and Ajaya Kumar Naik all at Indian Institute of Dalit Studies (IIDS), New Delhi A comprehensive assessment of the broad issues that underpin social exclusion in India. This book posits the Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs) vis-a-vis their upper-caste Hindu peers and establishes how caste is a lived reality in everyday life in modern India. It explores areas where caste and religious exclusion are most visible, such as human development, inequality, poverty, educational attainments, child malnutrition, health, employment, wages, gender, and access to public goods. With an in-depth theoretical foundation and empirical analysis, it establishes that in each of these sectors, the performance of upper-caste Hindu households is far better compared to that from the SC, ST, and Muslim households.

Conventional wisdom on caste is idealist, and most students of the subject therefore exaggerate ritual homogeneity and deflect attention from intracaste differentiation and inequality. In contrast, by focusing on intracaste differences, Professor Singh demonstrates that caste hierarchy is grounded in a monopoly of land rights and political power supported by religious and secular ideology. Drawing on the sociological, anthropological and historical literature, as well as primary sources, Recasting Caste refutes the widespread claim that, in India, caste consciousness always trumps class consciousness. It questions the twin myths that caste is a product of Hinduism and that caste is essential to the survival of Hinduism. It thereby reorients the entire field of study.

Through critically interrogating the nature and extent of subaltern agency in India, Gudavarthy offers a provocative set of arguments about India s violent democracy. Craig Jeffrey Author of Timepass: Youth, Class and the Politics of Waiting in India Maoism, democracy and globalization are three distinct but inseparable currents marking Indian politics today. They are distinct in terms of their goals, direction, and modalities of forging social, political, economic and even cultural change, while mutually influencing each other in the emergent political process. This book is an attempt to precisely map processes that are internal to each of these currents while exploring and identifying the moments of mutual influence, areas of conflict and mutually exclusive pulls they bring to the contemporary politics in India.

28 Political Sociology STATE AND CIVIL SOCIETY UNDER SIEGE Hindutva, Security and Militarism in India P M Joshy Sree Narayana College, Kollam and K M Seethi School of International Relations and Politics (SIRP), and former Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala A comprehensive analysis on the rise, assertion and dominance of the New Hindu Right forces in civil society. From its forgettable electoral performance of 1984 to its historical victory in 2014, the Bharatiya Janata Party s (BJP) story has been fodder for many political and academic debates. In this book, the authors show how the Hindu Right uses security, both external and internal, as a strategy for political mobilisation and eventual electoral success. It further explains the organisational and ideological penetration of the Sangh Parivar into the civil domain through strategies of securitisation. Deriving data from original sources, writings of leaders and their autobiographies, speeches, government documents, reports, pamphlets and manifestos of various Hindutva organisations, the work follows the growth of the Hindu Right forces and its trajectory over the years, taking a close look into its philosophical settings and political strategies. The book assumes significance in light of the massive electoral success of BJP in the 2014 elections.

29 Sociology of Religion HINDUISM IN INDIA Modern and Contemporary Movements Edited by Will Sweetman Senior Lecturer in Asian Religions, University of Otago and Aditya Malik Professor and Dean, School of Historical Studies, Nalanda University, Bihar Series editor: Geoffrey A Oddie Is Hinduism coherent, or should it be viewed as a conglomeration of many distinctive traditions? What were (or are) its most important and central teachings? When did the idea of Hinduism first arise and what have been the consequences? What were the effects of British rule on the religion and what are the effects of continuing modernization? This book responds to all such debates surrounding Hinduism in the colonial and contemporary periods. It emphasizes on Hinduism as it arose and developed in the subcontinent itself an approach which facilitates greater attention to detail and an understanding of the specific context in which new movements and changes have taken place.

31 Ethnic & Minority Studies / Media & Communication Studies BECOMING MINORITY How Discourses and Policies Produce Minorities in Europe and India Edited by Jyotirmaya Tripathy and Sudarsan Padmanabhan Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology, Madras The book is an effort to provide answers to the vexing issues of minority and minortisation. It addresses a common platform from where both India and Europe can articulate themselves vis-á-vis their minority practices...the book is reader-specific and meant essentially for policy makers and research scholars in social sciences. Organiser Becoming Minority is intended to trace the processes through which minorities perform as minorities, their discursive formation, narrativization and representation. It is thus evident that the book moves away from an uncritical understanding of the term minority as a container of some unchanging core ideals, and leads to a framework where minority comes into existence in the very act of representation. The book draws upon European and Indian experiences of cultural diversities as the regions are two of the most culturally diverse regions in the world and engage with diversity from within a democratic framework.

It is very rarely that literary representations by and about ethnic communities in India have been compared and contrasted. While talking about differences has become extremely fashionable in an age of anything-goesism, similarities have been brushed aside. It is significant that the book is written from the perspective of North East India, a region that has perhaps been witness to the worst possible scenario of identity politics leading to riots and large scale displacement.

A valuable record for all theatre lovers. Sanjna Kapoor Theatre Personality This is the first full-length study of BadalSircar ( ), the man who brought theatre to the streets and to the masses in India. Drawing on a variety of sources like his (untranslated) autobiographical writings, interviews, existing articles and scholarship, it examines three distinct aspects of his work: his art of playwriting, with milestone texts like Evam Indrajit, Pagla Ghoda and BakiItihas his form of theatre, which could be performed anywhere, was focused on the actor, and was an exercise in social critique dissemination of this art form through extensive workshops and mentoring.

As the editorial head of a specialist arts publisher, she was responsible for a broad range of books on art and culture between 1987 and She is the author of Habib Tanvir: Towards an Inclusive Theatre (SAGE, 2012). She has translated Habib Tanvir s Charandas Chor and Hirma ki Amar Kahani (The Living Tale of Hirma), as well as Usha Ganguli s Rudali and stories by Mahasweta Devi and Meera Mukherjee. She is translating Habib Tanvir s Bahadur Kalarin. She has been involved in organising several exhibitions of contemporary art, as well as writing catalogues for exhibitions by Chittrovanu Mazumdar, Somnath Hore, Manu Parekh, Madhvi Parekh, Reba Hore and Nasreen Moochhala. She has a background in education and teacher training. A published poet, she also sings the blues, and writes on theatre and the visual arts Seconds with Anjum Katyal What inspired you to write about Badal Sircar? I truly believe that he is the one person who as a playwrighter, theatre innovator, director, trainer and mentor of the second half of the 20th century has had across the country and indeed the Indian subcontinent. I wanted a lasting record of his theatre for people who have not and will not be able to see him in person. How did the book come about? This book is part of a three-book set focused on who have made a major contribution to theatre theory and practice in the country. These are studies of and phases in their artistic development. Both Habib Tanvir, the subject of the book before this, and Badal Sircar, with whom I had interacted over the years, were natural choices. Badal Sircar has a lot to teach us even today, years after his demise. Please share an interesting anecdote about Badal Sircar? The Badal Sircar I knew was a very proud and selfcontained person; he stuck to his own ideas and principles without compromise. In the last few years of his life, when he was recovering from an accident and more or less housebound, he was unable to undertake his usual theatre activities. I went to meet he lived. I was carrying a cheque from Seagull Books, the publishers of his English translations, where I was then Editor. He met me warmly but refused to accept the cheque; he wanted to know the reason why he was being offered the money. It was only when I managed to reassure him that this was not charity but money owed to him, as advance against books in the pipeline, that he agreed to accept it. He did not want anything that was not his by right. I realised how important his dignity and self-respect, his pride, was to him. How has the contribution of Badal Sircar become an important element in Indian theatre? Considered one of India s foremost modern playwrights, his plays like Ebong Indrajit (Evam Indrajit) and Michhil (Juloos) amongst others are Indian playwriting and on experimental theatre. Even today, his plays are being produced by theatre groups in various languages. Secondly, his ideas of a nonexpensive non-proscenium politically conscious and socially committed theatre form for the people Third Theatre - have impacted a wide range of theatre workers across India. 11A

From Ustaad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan to Kumar Ghandharva and from Pt. Ravi Shankar to A.R.

Ramachandran in Film and Politics M S S Pandian Late of Centre for Historical Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi [This] is by far the most convincing study of the subject... The book is a work of sound scholarship and will no doubt lure researchers to this fascinating field of popular culture and politics. Pandian has offered a splendid model. The added attractions in the book are an exhaustive bibliography and a complete filmography of MGR, which includes films like Thasipenn (1943), invariably omitted in such lists. S Theodore Bhaskaran The Hindu The Image Trap analyses the phenomenon of M G Ramachandran (MGR), the legendary film star-cum-politician of Tamil Nadu, as a modern-day political myth. This book offers fascinating details about the extent to which MGR was successful in creating a stereotypical cinematic persona, and what repercussions it had on Tamil Nadu. Delineating the cultural elements that were meticulously mobilised to constitute MGR s on-screen image, it analyses the popularity he enjoyed among the poor whose interests he constantly violated. This is done by means of what Pandian termed as constructed biographies which are popular narratives that ingeniously present the cinematic as real. It brings out the interface and interplay between the media and political processes. A blend of essay writing, political rhetoric and scholarship, the book features the complete filmography of MGR and is a must for understanding the contemporary politics of the state.

It focuses on how key production decisions shape a television commercial s visual language. The larger goal of the book is to delineate the link between this visual language and India s socio-cultural identity. The book is the outcome of an ethnographic study that attempted to capture the nuances of the cinematic or visual aspect of marketing communications strategy. It is, thus, situated at the intersection of interests in marketing and visual culture. In this book, many of the discussed television commercials have an embedded vision of India. Within the context of a new consumer culture emerging due to economic liberalization, the book discusses these sketches of India.

38 Cultural Studies CONFLICT RESOLUTION IN MULTICULTURAL SOCIETIES The Indian Experience Jhumpa Mukherjee St Xavier s College, Kolkata Is it not interesting that at a time when the idea of a global clash of civilizations is reverberating so mightily and so ominously, how India puts up with the challenge of forging national unity amidst its intricate diversity? What is the key to her comparative success as an integrated state?the question has assumed added significance after the disintegration of the former multiethnic Soviet Union in the early 1990s. The present study, informed by a modified neo-institutionalism, seeks to identify the key to India s success as an integrated democracy amidst a whole lot of trajectories. As an answer to India s relative success in state formation and political order, this study emphasizes the role of democratic multicultural decentralization, which is a distinctive institutional-political formulation grown out of India s specific contexts, and which has served as a method of effective governance in India.

Narsimhan s reading is a thorough one like a microscope moving systematically over semantic and stylistic details. The Hindu Translation as a Touchstone focuses on translation as a creative process, where Narasimhan proposes that translation is an art of highlighting the complex relationship that arises between two languages, their cultures and sensibilities when they are positioned as a main language and a target language. The implications of this proposition are far-reaching, as Narasimhan argues in this book. The place of English in translation exercises in India is an implicit theme, where translation is an act which consolidates the terrain between two linguo-cultures.

The Hindu Rescuing Railway Children focuses on runaway children in India who have used trains to take them away from home, and who live on railway station platforms and in trains. It presents the issues and challenges of reaching out to these railway children, particularly through the experiences of Sathi, an NGO based in Bangalore. This organisation has chosen to work with children on railway platforms across India with the intention of reuniting them with families wherever possible. The book deals with platform outreach and focuses on shelters close to the stations. The reuniting process is examined from a practical as well as a child-rights perspective. It expands the horizons of analysis by presenting the system prevailing in the UK as a counterpoint, thus highlighting the concerns and current thinking on institutional care and fostering at an international level.

Based on the author's experience of working with the street children for over 26 years, the book explores the universe of street children interestingly, yet empathetically. The author discusses laws and policies affecting street children; root causes and their effects on them and their families; and the various stakeholders like agencies, employers, and institutions involved in their care and guidance.

48 History THE BOSE BROTHERS AND INDIAN INDEPENDENCE An Insider s Account Madhuri Bose Human Rights Advocate and important addition to the literature on India's freedom movement and the roles in it of the formidable Bose brothers, Sarat and Subhas. Rajmohan Gandhi Research Professor, Center for South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, University of Illinois...invaluable to scholars both in India and elsewhere. It is also a reminder of the complexity of the independence movement and of the different perspectives of some of the main players. John McCarthy National President of Australian Institute for International Affairs This book chronicles the roles of Sarat and Subhas Chandra Bose in the Indian freedom struggle. It draws from first-hand accounts of Amiya Nath Bose who was close to them as family, political ally and also was a confidant and trusted envoy. This book begins with the entry of the Bose brothers into the turbulent political arena of India in the 1920s, and unravels the politics of Indian Nationalist Movement, as experienced by Sarat and Subhas Chandra Bose. It reveals their interactions with contemporary leaders such as Chittaranjan Das, Jinnah, Motilal and Jawaharlal Nehru, Vallabhbhai Patel and Gandhi down the years, to the Partition in 1947 that Sarat Bose relentlessly struggled against. Written by a family member with access to diaries, notes, photographs and private correspondence, this book brings to light previously unpublished material on Netaji and Sarat Chandra Bose. List of Photographs and Letters / Foreword by Rajmohan Gandhi / Acknowledgements / Introduction / The Bose Brothers and Ami / The Road to Mandalay / Swaraj Beckons Swaraj Denied / Bose Brothers and Gandhi Parting of the Ways / Partition: A Bitter Pill / A Free and United Bengal / Epilogue / Glossary / Index pages Hardback ( ) ` About the Author Madhuri Bose was born and grew up in Kolkata, the daughter and second child of Amiya Nath and Jyostna Bose, grand-daughter of Sarat Chandra Bose and grand-niece of his younger brother Subhas Chandra Bose. Reminiscences from her father Amiya of the immense contributions of the iconic Bose brothers to the Indian freedom struggle, were the stuff of her childhood and the genesis of this book. She has pursued her professional career as a human rights advocate over more than three decades, with the international labour organisation in Geneva, the United Nations Development Programme in East Africa, and the Commonwealth Secretariat in London. In her professional capacity, Madhuri has written extensively on human rights issues, and has travelled widely in Africa, Asia and Europe Seconds with Madhuri Bose How old was Amiya Nath Bose when he witnessed the Indian freedom struggle? How did he help you to write this book? Amiya was just thirteen years old when father Sarat with his immediate family and Subhas moved to 1 Woodburn Park. Amiya shared a bedroom with his Uncle Subhas who often talked to him about the freedom struggle. Thus Amiya s interest in the struggle was sparked by Subhas from an early age. Besides Woodburn Park was the hub of all the action since the 1920s and Amiya was growing up in the midst of it all. Amiya is the inspiration and principal source for this book. Can you share some interesting anecdotes about the Bose Brothers that your father might have shared with you? Father often spoke about the remarkable relationship between Sarat and Subhas. For Sarat, Subhas, eight years younger, was as dear to him as his own children (perhaps even more!); and for Subhas, his Mejda was his pillar in every way throughout his life. Amiya would recount, with a smile, how at times he would be sent as the messenger by Subhas to Sarat when the former was wary of Mejda s reactions, for example, Amiya conveyed Subhas distrust of Nirad C. Chaudhuri who in the late 1930s was engaged as the private secretary of Sarat. Unlike Subhas Chandra Bose, we heard much less about Sarat Chandra Bose. What could be the possible reason behind this? Justice has not been done to Sarat in recording his role in the Congress movement and in the history of the freedom struggle in the three decades from 1920 to Sarat was a highly principled and charismatic President of the Congress. After Sarat was released from detention in September 1945, it was Gandhi himself who appealed to him to take an active role in the Congress. Sarat was invited to join the Interim Government in 1946 as he was the Leader of the Opposition in the Central Legislative Assembly. What was it about these two erudite and charismatic men Sarat and Subhas Chandra Bose that commanded so much attention. The British Raj both admired and feared the Bose Brothers. Both were of outstanding intellect, highlyprincipled and fearless in the face of adversity. Both were able to more than match the British in their masterly use of the English language - in their knowledge and application of the law and accompanying rights and in their ability to highlight the injustices visited upon a subject people by an imperial overlord. 26A

49 History / Philosophy / Peace & Conflict FIELDWORK IN SOUTH ASIA Memories, Moments, and Experiences Edited by Sarit K Chaudhuri Head, Department of Anthropology, Rajiv Gandhi University, Arunachal Pradesh and Sucheta Sen Chaudhuri Head, Centre for Indigenous Culture Studies, Central University of Jharkhand, Ranchi The most valuable reflection on one of the central concerns of contemporary anthropology: to rehabilitate fieldwork as the essential core of the discipline s specificity. The contributors vividly account how field immersion is always an arduous and delicate undertaking and how for the same reason it cannot be substituted by any expedient. Philippe Ramirez Directeur de l UPR 299, Centre d'études Himalayennes, CNRS, France Fieldwork in South Asia is a valuable attempt to listen and learn from the memories and significant moments of fieldwork done by anthropologists, sociologists, and even historians from South Asia. The essays lead towards a deeper understanding of concerns of fieldwork located in various field sites across South Asia without assuming or applying fixed normative rules for the whole region.

The book is an interdisciplinary multifaceted venture that brings together scholarly work from across the world, across cultures and societies on the issue of suicide terror. The common thread weaving through all the articles is the notion of suicide terror as a complex phenomenon that defies easy explanation, prediction or controllability. Informed by theoretical stances of not only psychological sciences, but other social sciences like political science, criminology, military and sociology the book is an insightful reading.

50 Peace & Conflict SAGE SERIES IN HUMAN RIGHTS AUDITS OF PEACE PROCESSES Five Volume Set Edited by Rita Manchanda Research Director, South Asia Forum for Human Rights, Delhi The SAGE Series in Human Rights Audits of Peace Processes provides an overview of peace-audit study and explores why many peace processes fail. It provides comparative analyses of peace processes in South Asia drawn from field-based audit exercises in four regions: Northeast India; Balochistan, Pakistan; Madhesh, Nepal; and Chittagong Hills Tracts, Bangladesh. By placing conflictaffected peoples perspectives and experiences at the center, the five volumes explore the gaps between the national elite s vision of conflict management, pacification, and restoring normalcy vis-andagrave;-vis peoples expectations of systemic change in the factors that drove the conflicts. The volumes question the success of peacemaking processes, indexing them on the quality of democracy by looking at peoples rights and entitlements. They set forth ways in which peace accords can be made to deliver a more inclusive, non-exploitative, and just peace. 5 Volume Set pages Hardback ( ) ` 6, Making War, Making Peace Conflict Resolution in South Asia Rita Manchanda and Tapan Kumar Bose This book maps the South Asian states praxis of resolving ethnonationalist conflicts via peace accords that largely result in the creation of homeland -based federal arrangements and special autonomies. Confronted by the regions faltering peace processes, the authors explore the gaps between the national elites vision of conflict management and pacification and the conflict affected peoples expectations out of such peace processes. Bridging State and Nation Peace Accords in India s Northeast Rita Manchanda, Tapan Kumar Bose and Sajal Nag This book brings a rights based perspective to an area that has long been monopolized by counterinsurgency wallahs or body-count human rights documentation. Challenging the long-standing assumptions about primoridal tribalism, the book points out that the goal posts have shifted; new social forces have emerged which are capable of uniting community, group, and gender interests while negotiating for higher forms of autonomy. Balochistan A Case Study of Pakistan s Peacemaking Praxis Alia Amirali This book examines Pakistan's adoption of military force as its predominant strategy in Balochistan, recent shift in policy-making, and formulations and combinations that govern its choice of peace-making strategies. These strategies are shaped by the interests of competing factions/institutions within the state and the state s ruling elites. Confronting the Federal Sphinx in Nepal Madhesh-Tarai Tapan Kumar Bose and Som Prasad Niroula This volume evaluates the ascendence of the Madheshis in postwar Nepali politics and their emergence as a major player. Analyzing the political economy of Nepali nationalism, the book provides a history of the discrimination of Madheshis, their struggle for justice, participation in democracy movements, and their betrayal by the Caste Hill Hindu Elite (CHHE)-controlled political parties. It explores the possibility of a new Madheshi identity that can accommodate the competing claims of Tharus (Janajati), Muslims, and Dalits. Conflict and Partition Chittagong Hill Tracts, Bangladesh Amena Mohsin and Delwar Hossain The study traces the origins of ethnic insurgency, charts through the peace process, and takes the responses of different regimes; and also critically those of the Hill people from the field study. The CHT accord and its discords, questions pertaining to women, and issues of resource and power distribution have been analyzed. About the Editor Rita Manchanda is Research Director of the South Asia Forum for Human Rights. She is the Coordinator of the Human Rights and Peace Audits research project as well as the Women Conflict and Peace-building and Media and Conflict programs. 28A

The essays span the entire range of armed conflicts, including inter-state and intra-state actors in the region. An innovative attempt is also made to audit the peace processes in conflictdriven environments since certain areas have witnessed an end to armed conflicts. Addressing the gap between the end of violence and the response to peace, it assesses whether peace processes are fragile in South Asia.

Stimulating and readable. Janet Wilson University of Northampton This book s contribution lies in its careful synthesis of concepts and concrete examples on issues of contemporary concern: terrorism, Orientalism, and Dalit Bahujan movements, and their reception in the popular media as well as in academic literature. Drawing from the latest developments in South Asian literary studies, this book examines the uses of postcolonial theory in understanding the structural transformations enabled by post-9/11 discourses of Orientalism and terrorism; the internal contradictions between South Asian approaches to postcolonialism (Subaltern Studies) and its European adaptations; and the resistance produced by the indigenization of local literary traditions in the work of select South Asian literary figures.

The conflict in Kashmir, for example, continues to make headlines, while those in the Northeast and central India simmer, though relatively unnoticed. There appears to be no clear resolution to the civil war and occupation in Afghanistan, even as Nepal and Sri Lanka work out their very different post-war settlements. In Bangladesh, the war of 1971 remains a political fault line, as the events around the War Crimes Tribunal show. This volume demonstrates the importance of South Asia as a region to deepening the study of civil wars and armed conflicts and, simultaneously, illustrates how civil wars open up questions of sovereignty, citizenship and state contours. By engaging these broader theoretical debates, in a field largely dominated by security studies and comparative politics, it contributes to the study of civil wars, political sociology, anthropology and political theory.

While depicting the intrepid life of fighter pilots in active combat, the book also has an introspective side where it portrays the soldier s reactions to the terrifying realities of war. The experiences of prisoners of war are finely drawn, as we share the emotions of war death, alienation, loneliness and grief. Through heart-warming anecdotes and conversational passages of interactions with Pakistani interrogators, attendants, jailors and civilians, the book juxtaposes the metaphor of physical battles in the sky with the conflict of minds between two nations.

53 Environmental Studies / Urban Studies ACHIEVING UNIVERSAL ENERGY ACCESS IN INDIA Challenges and the Way Forward P C Maithani Director, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India and Deepak Gupta Ex-Secretary, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India Forty-five per cent of India s rural population is without electricity and over 85 per cent is dependent on biomass to meet its cooking needs. Projections suggest that if the present trends continue, a large section of India s rural population will remain without access to modern energy services even in It also follows that energy access is not only a critical component for reducing rural poverty and drudgery but it is also one of the fundamental conditions for holistic rural development. The book takes a critical look at the present energy policy and addresses ways to improve energy penetration. In doing so it encourages the use of renewable energy as an alternate medium, challenging the traditional power proponents.

This book highlights the importance of an integrated fiscal regime promoting innovations in efficient resource management, taxing polluting inputs and outputs, and spreading awareness about the problems facing the environment and its inter-dependent systems. The current structure of taxation in India, the book underlines, is characterized by inadequacies such as cascading, multiple tax rates and inter-state sales tax, fragmenting the all- India market. The ongoing fiscal reforms are aimed at ushering a comprehensive goods and services tax (GST) to address these concerns. The book argues in favour of integrating environmental considerations in the GST regime. It emphasizes the importance of eco-taxes on polluting inputs and outputs at a higher effective rate taking both the central and the state taxes into account.

It is not a book on urban India, or a book on Ahmedabad city, or even a book on the Sabarmati River Front Development (SRFD) project, but it is a book that uses all these lenses to conceptualize urban exploitation. The author develops a dialectical praxis of theory transfer that takes us from the First World to the Third World and back again. In the process, the arrow of theory transfer is not reversed, because theory cannot be transferred by simply changing the direction of the arrow; instead, an attempt is made to (re)produce and (re)inform different conceptual worlds by juxtaposing it with the SRFD project in Ahmedabad city. This book is, therefore, as much about the poor people of Ahmedabad as it is about global urban displacement and the politics of resettlement and resistance theory and practice are always inflected, and the chapters demonstrate this inflection deeply and clearly.

It describes how Delhi, as a city, is growing radially, stretching its way into the rural fringes of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh that border the city to form the National Capital Region. Through the microcosm of Greater Noida, a suburb of New Delhi, the author draws a portrait of life in a semiurban town, where billion dollar homes and villages with no sewage system share the same pin code. Some farmers sell their land and try to cope with a new found prosperity; others refuse and break into agitations that make newspaper headlines. A builder destroys a wetland to make a township while the middle class in high rises frets about power and security.

55 History SAGE SERIES IN MODERN INDIAN HISTORY Fifteen-Volume Set Edited by Bipan Chandra, Mridula Mukherjee both at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi and Aditya Mukherjee Centre for Historical Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi The SAGE Series in Modern Indian History consists of well-researched volumes with a wider scope and is intended to bring together the growing volume of historical studies that share a broad common historiographic focus. The approach that the authors have tried to evolve looks sympathetically, though critically, at the Indian national liberation struggle and other popular movements such as those of labour, peasants, lower castes, tribal peoples and women. It focuses on communalism and casteism as major features of modern Indian development. The volumes in the series will tend to reflect this approach as also its changing and developing features. At the broadest plane this approach is committed to the Enlightenment values of rationalism, humanism, democracy and secularism. This set includes: Volume ¹: Independence and Partition: The Erosion of Colonial Power in India by Sucheta Mahajan Volume ²: A Narrative of Communal Politics: Uttar Pradesh, ¹9³7 ³9 by Salil Misra Volume ³: Imperialism, Nationalism and the Making of the Indian Capitalist Class, by Aditya Mukherjee Volume 4: From Movement to Government: The Congress in the United Provinces, ¹9³7 4² by Visalakshi Menon Volume 5: Peasants in India s Non-Violent Revolution: Practice and Theory by Mridula Mukherjee Volume 6: Communalism in Bengal: From Famine to Noakhali, ¹94³ 47 by Rakesh Batabyal Volume 7: by Shri Krishan Volume 8: by Tan Tai Yong Volume 9: Colonializing Agriculture: The Myth of Punjab Exceptionalism by Mridula Mukherjee Volume ¹0: Region, Nation, Heartland : Uttar Pradesh in India s Body-Politic by Gyanesh Kudaisya Volume ¹¹: National Movement and Politics in Orissa, by Pritish Acharya Volume ¹²: by D N Gupta Volume ¹³: Vocalising Silence: Political Protests in Orissa, ¹9³0 ³² by Chandi Prasad Nanda Volume ¹4: Nandanar s Children: The Paraiyans Tryst with Destiny, Tamil Nadu ¹850 ¹956 by Raj Sekhar Basu Volume ¹5: Enlightenment and Violence: Modernity and Nation-Making by Tadd Fernée pages Hardback ( ) ` Volume Set PATEL, PRASAD AND RAJAJI Myth of the Indian Right Neerja Singh Department of History, Satyawati College, University of Delhi This book traces the debates around the concept of Right and Right-wing Politics in the Indian political context. Delineating the differing ideological positions held by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Dr Rajendra Prasad and C. Rajagopalachari on the one hand and of their leftist socialist detractors and opponents on the other, this book questions the validity of using terms such as Rightist or Leftist based on Eurocentric notions without understanding the Indian context. It establishes the fact that these three Gandhian leaders did not represent conservative or reactionary forces. They, in fact, practised and promoted progressive ideas in their vision of socio-economic reconstruction of the country.

In the aftermath of the First World War and the Bolshevik Revolution, individuals and countries sought new solutions and blueprints for a world of greater stability, equality, and interdependency. Their divergent ends and objectives were held together, if temporarily, by a euphoria for the vastness and integratedness of the world and the desire and optimism to remake it and shape the future of humanity.

This book dares to produce that critical look at the way archæological knowledge is created and passed on in Indian archæology and should jolt its institutional leaders out of their seats of scientific complacency. B D Chattopadhyaya, Former Professor of History, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi This book encourages us to critically regard the ways in which ideologies of cultural heritage and civilisational legacies are transformed into tangible and visible things through archæological scholarship. It guides us to think afresh of the histories of antiquarianism in South Asia, explore the impetus of collecting and curatorial practices within the scholarship of pre-colonial India, and investigate the diverse linkages within the histories of Indian archæology.

57 History GOVERNANCE, CONFLICT AND DEVELOPMENT IN SOUTH ASIA Perspectives from India, Nepal and Sri Lanka Edited by Siri Hettige University of Colombo and Eva Gerharz Ruhr-University Bochum This volume examines how various forms of governance have emerged in South Asia after colonialism, and the developmental and conflict-related challenges the region faces. Drawing from the contexts of India, Sri Lanka and Nepal, it highlights the degree of institutionalization of democracy. The book further points to the manner in which shortcomings in governmental arrangements intersect with the prevalence of conflict at the national as well as sub-national levels.

The history of South Asians in East Africa is neither part of the mainstream national Indian history nor that of East African history writing. This is surprising because South Asians in East Africa outnumbered the Europeans ten-to-one. Moreover, their overall economic contribution and political significance may be more important than the history of the colonisers. This book is an attempt to provide some balance in the form of a history of the South Asians in East Africa through the lens of the actors themselves. It studies the kind of social, economic and political adjustments the emigrant Gujaratis had to make in the course of this migration. By using insights from the social sciences, including concepts like cultural capital, family firm, transnationality, middleman minorities and cultural change, this book aims to achieve a broader understanding of communities that do not belong to nations, yet are part of national states.

Although Muslims constitute an important part of the population and are the second largest religious community in the world, as well as in India, social scientists rarely undertake this community to analyze their socioeconomic and educational development.

It challenges popular notions about Muslims in India and questions ill-conceived research designs in the sociology of religion. More than a decade after the ²00² riots in Gujarat, this empirical typology sheds light on the diversity of Muslim civil society and Muslims in civil society. Muslim peace activists in post-conflict Gujarat experience the 'ambivalence of the sacred' as a personal dynamic; as faith-based actors, secular technocrats, emancipating women and doubting professionals, they struggle for a better future in diverse and sometimes surprising ways. By taking their diversity seriously, this book sharpens the distinction between ambivalence and ambiguity, and provides fresh perspectives on religion and politics in India today.

60 Cultural Sociology SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY OF EMOTION Darren Ellis and Ian Tucker University of East London The study of emotion tends to breach traditional academic boundaries. It requires multi-modal perspectives and the suspension of dualistic conventions to appreciate its complexity. This book analyzes historical, philosophical, psychological, biological, sociological, poststructural, and technological perspectives of emotion that Ellis argues are important for a viable social psychology of emotion. It begins with early ancient philosophical conceptualizations of pathos and ends with analytical discussions of the transmission of affect which permeate the digital revolution. It will be of interest to upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students of psychosocial studies, the individual and society, and those on courses across the social sciences dealing with affect and emotion.

Going beyond the traditional discursive understanding of emotions, Ian Burkitt investigates emotions as a complex and dynamic phenomenon that includes the whole self, body and mind, but which always occur in relation to others.

It is an interpellation to everyone. An entrepreneurial self is something we all are supposed to strive for. In Western societies, the imperative to orientate thinking and behaviour on the objective of market success has become ubiquitous. The call to act as entrepreneurs of our own lives initiates and sustains a never-ending process of constantly shaping the self. One is only ever an entrepreneur à venir, only ever in a state of becoming one, never of being one. As such a system must produce winners and losers, programmes for self-management and coaching flourish aiming on the optimization of the personality. The call for entrepreneurship may tap unknown potential but it also leads to permanent over-challenging. It may strengthen self-confidence but it also exacerbates the feeling of powerlessness. It may set free creativity but it also generates unbounded anger. Competition is driven by the promise that the most capable will reap the most success, but no amount of effort can remove the risk of failure. The individual has no choice but to balance out the contradiction between the hope of rising and the fear of decline, between empowerment and despair, euphoria and dejection. Ulrich Bröckling s seminal sociological study analyses these ambivalences and points it to a critical diagnosis of contemporary society.

MEN OF THE WORLD Genders, Globalizations, Transnational Times Jeff Hearn Örebro University University; Hanken School of Economics How is globalization gendered? Why do many books on globalization fail to discuss gender relations? And, why do many of those that do omit an explicit and developed analysis of men and gender relations? This is a book on men within gender relations, that is, men in the context of changing gender relations, with particular reference to global change, processes of transnationalization and intersectionalities. It considers the implications of debates on globalization and transnationalization for analyzing men, and the implications of debates on men for gendering globalization and transnationalization.

66 ipad Sport, Leisure & Work / Health & Illness SKILLS IN BUSINESS The Role of Business Strategy, Sectoral Skills Development and Skills Policy Johnny Sung and David N Ashton both at University of Leicester Public policies invariably view a wide range of economic and social issues, for example low productivity, low-skilled jobs, low wage, inequality and in-work poverty as the consequence of skills deficits and a lack of qualifications held by individual workers. Whilst misdiagnosing the source of the problems and failing to deliver any effective change, public skills policies continue with a policy prescription of more skills and more degrees. This book examines the role of public skills policy from a completely different perspective. It starts by challenging the lack of a systematic analysis of the link between skills utilization and business strategy, and provides a new model for fresh thinking. The book extends this theoretical analysis to examine the implications for the sectoral approach to skills development as a more effective form of public skills policy.

67 Childhood, Youth & Ageing GLOBAL CHILDHOODS Issues and Debates Kate Cregan Monash University and Denise Cuthbert RMIT University Global Childhoods engages readers in rethinking common global Northern conceptions of childhood and children by providing a wider lens through which to question the Eurocentrism inherent in much of this thinking. With a clear interdisciplinary approach throughout, the book encourages students to look at the range of competing and contradictory academic and popular discourses on children and childhood, alongside the everpresent issues of power and its relationship to knowledge about children. It offers a broad-ranging inquiry into the field of childhood studies, exploring theory and research across sociology, psychology, education, anthropology and social policy. Key Ideas And Theoretical Approaches In The Study Of Children And Childhood / Knowing Children: Theory And Method In The Study Of Childhood / What Is A Child?: Making Meaning Of Children And Childhood / Global Childhoods: Children As Objects Of National And Global Concern / The Convention On The Rights Of The Child And The Construction Of The Normative Global Child / Case Studies In The Meaning Of Children And Childhood / The Habitus Of Childhood: Home, School, Work / Children And Disaster: Child Soldiers And Orphans / The Child And The Nation: Case Studies In The Persecution And Forced Removal Of Children By The State / The Value Of Children / Future Children: Identity And Perfectibility pages Hardback ( ) Paperback ( ) SECONDS WITH THE AUTHORS Kate If you could have a conversation with any sociologist from the past, who would it be? Denise: If I had to choose just one it would probably be Max Weber, for his deep sense of history and valuable insights into the rise of modernity. Kate: Norbert Elias. He lived through massive technological innovations and given his views on the evolution of manners (and childhood), I'd love to hear what he had to say about social media. Which sociologists working today inspire you? Denise: This is a tough call to make, but I find myself returning to the work of Arlie Russell Hochschild. She has been highly influential in theorising the private space of family and emotions, on understanding the interconnections between capitalism and domesticity, and her work on care chains illuminates these relationships as they are articulated through migration and globalisation. Kate: Specifically in relation to this book, Leena Alanen, for embedding childhood in the sociological landscape. What advice would you give a sociology student in 2015? Kate: Don't be put off by theoretical concepts expressed in difficult language: they are often surprisingly straightforward at heart. Denise: Be an active not a passive reader. Always read widely, read critically and with a pencil in your hand (or the electronic equivalent) to assess the merits and validity of the arguments you read, as well as the nuances of the language used. What was the most enjoyable aspect of writing Global Childhoods? Kate: For me, digging out the personal history material, and writing with a collaborator who could challenge while remaining respectful. Denise: Working with my co-author. Working with a collaborator can turn an otherwise lonely process into a social and interactive one. Also, a co-author helps to keep you honest and challenges you to extend your ideas and sharpen your writing. And the hardest part? Kate: Getting started! Once I knew what I had to say and started writing, it flowed remarkably well. Denise: I found the biggest challenge was grappling with the limitations of rights-based discourse as an appropriate vehicle for advancing the interests of children, for which I attempted to form a critique in the book.

The authors skilfully guide us through the main sociological theories on young people and furnish us with sophisticated critiques from which to rethink youth and generation in the contemporary moment. - Anoop Nayak, Newcastle University The promise of youth studies is not in simply showing that class, gender and race continue to influence life chances, but to show how they shape young lives today. Dan Woodman and Johanna Wyn argue that understanding new forms of inequality in a context of increasing social change is a central challenge for youth researchers. Youth and Generation sets an agenda for youth studies building on the concepts of social generation and individualisation to suggest a framework for thinking about change and inequality in young lives in the emerging Asian century.

69 Education RANK HYPOCRISIES The Insult of the REF Derek Sayer University of Lancaster Few decisions are as consequential for Britain's universities as those of REF panels. Not only do REF rankings determine the research funding universities receive from the state, they affect institutions' ability to attract external grants, top-flight faculty, and graduate students. The REF has been widely criticized for its enormous costs in taxpayers' money and academics' time, its discouragement of innovative research, and its negative effects on collegiality and staff morale. Rank Hypocrisies goes beyond previous critiques in openly challenging the REF's claim to provide 'expert review of the outputs' the very heart of its legitimacy. Derek Sayer paints a picture in which overburdened assessors assign vaguely defined grades in fields that are frequently not their own while ignoring external indicators of the academic influence of the publications they are appraising. Judged against international norms of peer review, Britain's REF is an elaborate charade. Benchmarks / Potemkin's Village / Down and Dirty / The Abject Academy SAGE SWIFTS pages Hardback ( ) UNIVERSITIES AT WAR Thomas Docherty University of Warwick, UK There is a war on for the future of the university worldwide. The stakes are high, and they reach deep into our social condition. On one side, are self-proclaimed modernizers who view the institution as vital to national economic success. Here the university is a servant of the national economy in the context of globalization, its driving principles of private and personal enrichment necessary conditions of progress and modernity. Others see this as a radical impoverishment of the university s capacities to extend human possibilities and freedoms, to seek earnestly for social justice, and to participate in the endless need for the extension of democracy. This book analyzes the former position, and argues for the necessity of taking sides with the latter. It does so with a sense of urgency, because the market fundamentalists are on the march. The fundamental war that is being fought is not just for scholars, but for a better - more democratic, more just, more emancipatory - form of life.

70 Education / Crime & Deviance THE SAGE HANDBOOK OF RESEARCH MANAGEMENT Edited by Robert Dingwall Nottingham Trent University and Mary McDonnell Larger-scale projects are becoming more common throughout the social sciences and humanities, housed in centres, institutes and programmes. Talented researchers find themselves faced with new challenges to act as managers and leaders rather than as individual scholars. They are responsible for the careers and professional development of others, and for managing interactions with university administrations and external stakeholders. Although many scientific and technological disciplines have long been organized in this way, few resources have been created to help new leaders understand their roles and responsibilities and to reflect on their practice - until now. This book will be a standard work of reference for new research leaders, in any discipline or country, looking for help and inspiration. The editorial commentaries extend its potential use in support of training events or workshops where groups of new leaders can come together and explore the issues that are confronting them pages Hardback ( ) THE STRUCTURE OF SCHOOLING Readings in the Sociology of Education Third Edition Richard Arum New York University, Irenee R Beattie University of California, Merced and Karly Ford Pennsylvania State University This reader in the sociology of education examines important topics and exposes students to examples of sociological research on schools. Drawing from classic and contemporary scholarship, the readings examine current issues and reflect diverse theoretical approaches to studying the effects of schooling on individuals and society pages Paperback ( ) $93.00 See the full listing of all our Sociology titles online at KEY CONCEPTS IN CRIME AND SOCIETY Ross Coomber Griffith University, Joseph F Donnermeyer Ohio State University, Karen McElrath Fayetteville State University and John Scott University of New England A crucial text for whetting the academic appetite of those studying criminology at university. The comprehensive engagement with key crime and deviance debates and issues make this a perfect springboard for launching into the complex, diverse and exciting realm of researching criminology. - Dr Ruth Penfold-Mounce, University of York Key Concepts in Crime and Society offers an authoritative introduction to key issues in the area of crime as it connects to society. By providing critical insight into the key issues within each concept as well as highlighted cross-references to other key concepts, students will be helped to grasp a clear understanding of each of the topics covered and how they relate to broader areas of crime and criminality. The book is divided into three parts: Understanding Crime and Criminality: introduces topics such as the social construction of crime and deviance, social control, the fear of crime, poverty and exclusion, white collar crime, victims of crime, race/gender and crime. Types of Crime and Criminality: explores examples including human trafficking, sex work, drug crime, environmental crime, cyber crime, war crime, terrorism, and interpersonal violence. Responses to Crime: looks at areas such as crime and the media, policing, moral panics, deterrence, prisons and rehabilitation. The book provides an up-to-date, critical understanding on a wide range of crime related topics covering the major concepts students are likely to encounter within the fields of sociology, criminology and across the social sciences.
