2 Anti-utopia: Essential Writings of Andre Beteille

Dipankar Gupta (ed.)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-19-567229-1 / 9780195672299, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
In a career spanning over four decades known for its robustness and versatality, Andre Beteille's contribution and influence on the way sociology is researched, studied, and taught in India has been immense. Beteille's works are characterized by a singular openness to diverse theoretical influences. While drawing upon universal theories and concepts, Beteille's is always rooted in the context of empirical realities. He believes that the search for exotica in Indian society has led to an intellectual overemphasis on caste and a subsequent neglect of class. Characteristically, his own study of the caste system reflects his commitment to the comparative method and not to Indology or the book view. Bringing together the essence of Beteille's ideas and writing, this collection of 19 essays has been specially selected and introduced by Dipankar Gupta. The book is divided into five sections, each of which is devoted to Professor Beteille's varied intellectual interests. The essays range fr om the significance of the comparative method, to ideas of equality and inequality, and finally to issues regarding civil society and institutional well-being. In each instance, Beteille's characteristic signature of blending theory to Indian reality is clearly evident. It is because of his erudition that he is, unarguably, one of the most quoted scholars on India. This collection is also evidence that Beteille's political positions are the result of deep intellectual scrutiny--which is why utopian visions are unappealing to him. His ability to utilize his academic prowess to comment on popular contemporary issues makes Beteille a happy anti-utopian, for he envisions progress and is ever hopeful. In an exclusive interview for the book, Beteille talks at length of his life and career. From his Indo-French background in a small West Bengal district town to his early life in Kolkata, his intellectual jousts with many academic luminaries, his reservations against materialist interpre tations of history and religious interpretations of the world, and his plans for the future, Beteille is remarkably candid and forthright. This and his piece on his two grandmothers, one Bengali Brahmin and the other French, give readers an insight into the private life of a well-known public intellectual. For its scholarship, eloquence, freshness, and enduring relevance, this volume will be indispensable to students, scholars, and teachers of sociology, social anthropology, politics, socio-legal studies, and history, besides an informed general audience.

12 Fragments of Inequality (Social, Spatial, and Evolutionary Analyses of Income Distribution Series)

Sanjoy Chakravorty

Routledge, London, UK, 2007, 0415952964 / 9780415952965, First Edition, Paperback, New, 150 x 225 Mm 
Fragments of Inequality merges sociological, geospatial, and economic explanations of global inequality into a grand synthesis of the subject that breaks new ground by stressing the phenomenon's spatial foundations. Concentrating on inequality within and between regions, the book demonstrates that spatial inequality has increased in recent years. It employs modified evolutionary principles (i.e., punctuated equilibrium; not entirely smooth and linear in terms of chronological development) rather than the more abstract ones of rationality and self-interest that economists use, and on a fragmented rather than abstract conception of space. Global in its empirical coverage, it also addresses the current impact of economic globalization. Printed Pages: 280. 020839

The Oxford in India Readings in Sociology and Social Anthropology comprise a set of volumes, each on an important theme or sub-area within these disciplines. Along with authoritative introductions and sectional prefaces, each book brings together key essays that apprise readers of the current debates and developments within that area, with specific reference to India. The volumes act both as introductions to sociology and social anthropology and as essential reference works for students, teachers and researchers. This reader provides a comprehensive and cross disciplinary account of research methodology, covering the character of social research, fieldwork, ethnography, and survey research as also the ethical and ideological issues involved in doing research. The contributions from well-known ethnographers and social scientists highlight the nature of social research, and conceptualize social reality and its dimensions. They discuss the importance of classification, the re le vance of compa-rison and restudy in social research, and the possibility of arriving as close as possible to the subject s point of view. In addition, the volume engages with ethnography and fieldwork, factors conditioning the choice of field area, comparison of fieldwork in rural and urban areas, the use of techniques in fieldwork and the improvisations needed, and finally the use of visuals in anthropological research.

20 Social Movements in India: A Review of Literature

Ghanshyam Shah

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2004, 0-7619-9834-9 / 9780761998341, First Edition, Paperback, New, New, 5.5" x 8.5" 
Social movements primarily take the form of non-institutionalised collective political action which strive for political and/or social change. While India has witnessed many such movements over the centuries, it is only recently that scholars have begun to study them in depth. This thoroughly revised and updated version of a seminal book critically examines and reviews the literature concerning social movements in India from 1857 to the present. In the process he discusses the theoretical issues raised by various scholars while analysing major trends in different movements. In conclusion, he suggests areas for future research. Proposing a logical classification of social movements in modern India, this book will be widely welcomed by social activists as well as by political scientists, historians and sociologists. It will also be invaluable as a text in courses on social movements. Printed Pages: 280. 007969
