The State in India: Past and Present
The State in India: Past and Present
Description
From the Jacket :

Is the state today an offshoot of the pre-colonial Indian state or was it introduced by British colonial rule? This volume reviews critical questions about the emergence of the state in India from ancient times to the modern period. It discusses its role, account various approaches and points of view.

Discussing the state in the context of its historical reflexivity and cultural sensitivity, the book goes beyond the critique of the Indian state from Euro-centric viewpoints. It also addresses fundamental issues central to the multifaceted understanding of the state in India.

The volume offers significant insights into the relationship between state and society and those between secularity and religiosity in India. Combining critical theoretical inputs with sound empirical analyses, it brings together the insight of an interdisciplinary array of experts from across the globe.

Its engagement with a highly topical theme makes this book a significant read for students and scholars, as also journalists, policymakers, and informed lay readers interested in the Indian state.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
