The search through the ruins of the World Trade Center is complete. The Pentagon has been fully repaired. But has the war against terrorism been won? More Specifically, has the threat posed by Osama bin Laden's Al Qaeda organisation been contained? The most significant impact of the US military operation has, of course, been on the Taliban but will the United Front, back in power in Afghanistan, be able to reconstruct the devastated and bleak country, politically and economically? Afghanistan and 9/11 journeys through the ruins of the Twin Towers and the killing fields of Afghanistan to focus on the key question of whether the war against terror has been won? A compelling anthology authored by well-known national and international authors, the book is as informative as it is analytical. Printed Pages: 256. 011509

Against this backdrop, this volume provides an understanding of these forces in both historical and analytical terms. In particular, the seminal essays gathered here explore the specificities of the crucial social categories of class, caste and gender, while simultaneously drawing attention to the arenas in which they intersect.

10 Democracy in India

Niraja Gopal Jayal (ed.)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-19-565561-3 / 9780195655612, First Edition, Paperback, New, 14 x 22 Cm 
The Themes in Politics series presents essays on important issues in Indian political science and politics - contemporary political theory, Indian social and political thought, and foreign policy, among others. Each volume in the series brings together the most significant articles and debates on each issue, and contains a substantive introduction and an annotated bibliography. Independent India's experiment with the democratic form is unique, and the contestation over its successes and failures has found expression in a wide-ranging and lively debate. This collection of readings brings together the finest scholarly writings on several dimensions of India's democracy. The Introduction situates Indian democracy in the context of the basic principles of democratic theory, as well as contemporary debates about the relationship of democracy with civil society, cultural diversity and development. The opening essays explore the colonial lineage of democracy in independent India, as well as its inherited contradictions. Other essays on the state and democracy address the crucial question - has the state contributed to the decline of democracy, or has democratic politics undermined the state's capability to govern? Some tensions between political democracy and economic development are identified, and the impact of recent trends in Indian democracy on economic reforms discussed. Other essays examine how democracy is experienced at the local level, especially through institutions of local self-government. The concluding essays in the volume explore the future of Indian democracy as the discourses of dalit political mobilization and the forces of Hindutva seek to redefine it. 013559

Durable Disorder: Understanding the Politics of Northeast India, Sanjib Baruah
11 Durable Disorder: Understanding the Politics of Northeast India

Sanjib Baruah

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-19-566981-9 / 9780195669817, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
For decades states in India's Northeast have experienced ethnic conflict and suffered human and material losses due to insurgency and counter-insurgency operations. This book analyses the causes and seeks to comprehend the political me aning and significance of persisting political violence. The author argues that prolonged counter-insurgency operations have eroded the democratic fabric of the region and institutionalized authoritarian practices. There is a growing dissonance between the idea of ethnic homelands and the actually existing political economy of the region that makes ethnic violence and internal displacements quite predictable. The book explores the economic incorporation of the region into the global capitalist economy in the 19th century and the resultant conflict between global and local resource use regimes. It delves into the historical roots of the region's oldest armed conflict--the Naga insurgency, and carries a detailed analysis of the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) during different phases of its power and influence. The author argues for a reorientation of India's policy towards the Northeast and for linking it to a new foreign policy towards Southeast Asia. India should ta ke advantage of the cultural and spatial proximity of the Northeastern states to the ASEAN region. The economic integration of the region with Southeast Asia through the pursuit of a dynamic 'Look East'policy could go a long way in bringing about stability, peace, and prosperity.

Roots of Terrorism, Kanti P. Bajpai
24 Roots of Terrorism

Kanti P. Bajpai

Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2002, 0-14-302813-8 / 9780143028130, First Edition, Paperback, New, New, 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
The events of 11 September in New York and 13 December in New Delhi marked the high points of terrorism. But Indiaís experience with it goes back two decades. In this essay, Bajpai examines the volatile situation in the borderlands of Kashmir, Punjab and the Northeast, while drawing comparisons with leftist insurgency, communal riots, and caste wars elsewhere. How should we think about terrorist violence? Why has India been the object of terrorism from separatist groups in Kashmir, Punjab, and the Northeast? Have external influences played a role in supporting this? How has the Indian government responded to secessionist violence? These are some of the concerns the author explores here, as he seeks an identifiable set of factors that account for terrorism. Dwelling on how this violence can be combated, Bajpai discusses in detail the case of Kashmir. He argues convincingly about the impracticality of the military option, including war, and the futility of using limited force, as in policing, without commitment to a credible political process, namely free and fair elections. In this forceful and timely essay he not only calls for measured governmental action, but also places responsibility on citizens for restoring long-term peace by finding ways of de-legitimizing violence in Indian society. 002435

Suicide Bombers: Allah's New Martyrs, Farhad Khosrokhavar
28 Suicide Bombers: Allah's New Martyrs

Farhad Khosrokhavar

Pluto Press, London, UK, 2005, 0745322832 / 9780745322834, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
In the West, the suicide bomber has become a familiar image in newspapers and on television. In Palestine, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and elsewhere, the results of suicide bombing have been devastating. What drives young men and women to become suicide bombers? This is not a question that is often addressed. / This remarkable book provides some of the answers, and explores how the suicide bomber relates to the concept of the martyr in fundamentalist Islam. Farhad Khosrokhavar contrasts it with the idea of the martyr in Christianity. Most importantly, he offers a clear insight into the different ways in which the concept is viewed within Islam, including divisions within Islamic fundamentalist groups, which change according to the political situation of the country in which they are based. / Drawing on extensive interviews with jailed Islamist militants, Farhad Khosrokhavar examines differing attitudes towards the 'sacred death' in various Islamic countries, including Iran, Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt. He also investigates transnational networks such as Al-Qaeda, offering portraits of various prisoners who belong to the group. / Farhad Khosrokhavar distinguishes between two types of martyr: those from the developing world, who are excluded from what modernity has to offer; and the minority who live at the heart of the Western world - a mainly middle-class diaspora from the Middle East and the Maghreb who are at ease with several cultural codes, but whose experience of the West is still marked by racism and discrimination.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948) was born in Porbander on the western coast of India. His childhood and early upbringing were undistinguished but as an adult he initiated and was involved in a series of novel forms of peaceful protests which established him as one of the most important leaders of the twentieth century and one whose message and relevance transcended national boundaries. This meticulously edited volume culled from the Collected Works of Gandhi contains a representative selection of his writings focusing on themes which were central to Gandhiís philosophy. The reader is divided into eight sections and discusses the following in detail: Gandhijiís complete rejection of what is known as modern civilization together with its materialistic nature; the doctrines of swaraj and swadeshi, which meant more to him than mere independence for the British; the creed of non-violence, the centrepiece of his political theory; his role in mass movements particularly in the Non-Co-operation Civil Disobedience and Quit India movements; his views on women and sex; his arguments against caste and untouchability; his thoughts on capitalism and socialism; his commitment to a united India; his firm belief in religious tolerance and finally, his lifelong struggle towards the attainment of both Home Rule and Self Rule.

41 The Substance of Politics

Late A. Appadorai

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2000, 0-19-565633-4 / 9780195656336, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 14 x 22 Cm 
This classic text is a well-integrated and comprehensive account of the essential principles of political theory and organization. It presents a consistent thesis that the State exists for the benefit of the individual and not the individual for the State. It provides critical as well as factual discussions on: forms of government and inter-state relations against the background of fundamental political concepts, such as liberty, equality, law and sovereignty; the history of government from the days of Greek city-states to modern times; the modern constitutions of the UK, the USA, the French Republic, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, and India; principles of governmental organization, its structure and working. As a clear, well-written and modern introduction to politics, this book serves as a primary textbook for students of political science at the undergraduate level, for both BA honours and pass courses. Hugely successful in its previous printings, it is also useful for the general reader looking for a lucid exposition of the basic ideas of politics. Printed Pages: 600. 013593
