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.

Development and Nationhood: Essays in the Political Economy of South Asia, Meghnad Desai
12 Development and Nationhood: Essays in the Political Economy of South Asia

Meghnad Desai

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-19-566760-3 / 9780195667608, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Renowned development economist, and peer, Lord Meghnad Desai has been one of the foremost observers of India and its economy in the last forty years. Passionately written and decidedly non-neutral in tone, his essays, collected here for the first time, constitute perhaps the most significant statement linking policy choices and outcomes on independent India. This volume retells the story of India as one of unexpected surprises and unfulfilled expectations. For four decades after independence, to the world around it, India epitomized under-performance swathed in a posture of moral arrogance. Scarcely a decade after being written off, India occupies an enviable place in the new global econo my. E ven so, acute problems of poverty, deprivation, and ethnic trouble still exist and India is yet to come to terms with several aspects of development and nationhood--the twin pillars of democratic societies. The essays in this volume explore issues as diverse as federalism and economic change in India, the imposition of Emergency, the rise of the BJP, communalism, socialism, the future of socialist planning and capitalist development, as also questions of nationality and the singular challenges presented by globalization. The collection offers a rich tapestry of South Asia's political and developmental impulses. The textured analysis will interest all students and observers of South Asia including social scientists, developmental economists, and historians as well as journalists, activists, policy planners, and other professionals.

Roots of Terrorism, Kanti P. Bajpai
30 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 India’s 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

This book analyzes the relative impact of class and status groups versus demographic composition and political structures on the growth of welfare spending. Special attention is given to the role of the aged as representative of the importance of ascription and middle-class groups in welfare growth. The authors conclude that the primary beneficiaries of welfare benefits are not the poor but middle income groups and that income inequality is reinforced by welfare spending.

Suicide Bombers: Allah's New Martyrs, Farhad Khosrokhavar
37 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 Gandhi’s philosophy. The reader is divided into eight sections and discusses the following in detail: Gandhiji’s 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.
