6 A Postcolonial People: South Asians in Britain

N. Ali, V.S. Kalra, and S. Sayyid (eds)

Hurst & Company, London, UK, 1850657971 / 9781850657972, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
The diversity and complexity of British Asian life is plain for all to see and has been celebrated in literature, poetry and film, not to mention performing arts and music. Till now, however, an accessibly written introductory volume on the South Asian presence has been absent from our bookshelves. A Postcolonial People is an innovative and intriguing blend of scholarship and reportage on the multi-faceted experience of British Asians covering everything from discrimination to bhangra, Bradford to chicken tikka, Asian Britsih cultural landscapes to arranged marriages. Eschewing both anthropological approaches and overtly theoretical analyses, the contributors map out the heterodox impact of British Asians on the United Kingdom, detailing their achievement and setbacks, points of intersection and divergence as a postcolonial people and everyday lives.

7 Accelarating Growth and Job Creation in South Asia

Ejaz Ghani and Sadiq Ahmed (eds)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009, 0198060041 / 9780198060048, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In recent times, South Asia has attracted global attention for demonstrating rapid growth. What is not so well known is that this is the least integrated region in the world. South Asia has opened its door to the rest of the world but remains closed to its neighbours. Poor market integration, weak connectivity, and a history of conflict have created ‘two South Asias? The first is dynamic, urbanized, globally integrated, and rapidly growing; the second is rural, impoverished, and lagging. Accelerating Growth and Job Creation in South Asia provides fresh perspectives on these issues by exploring the link between regional integration, economic growth, and job creation. The outcome of a high-level dialogue between the private sector, political leadership, policymakers, and academics in South Asia, this volume is an important contribution to the debates in this area. The volume is organized along three themes—overview of South Asia’s growth opportunities and challenges; sources of growth and policies for the future; and the significance of regional cooperation in promoting growth. The essays combine quantitative data with analytical rigour to provide innovative suggestions in terms of policies and institutions that can propel South Asia towards higher growth, while promoting inclusiveness. 027591

14 Analysing Social Opposition to Reforms: The Electricity Sector in India

V. Santhakumar

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2008, 8178298589 / 9788178298580, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This book examines how market contexts shape the opposition of people to public sector reforms, with evidence from the Indian electricity sector. Based on a survey of 7,000 households in 14 Indian states and following a rational choice framework, it analyses the response of households to the prospect of privatization of electricity utilities. Analysing Social Opposition to Reforms: The Electricity Sector in India discusses the possibility of compensating losers and sequencing reform strategies. It uses empirical evidence from the Indian electricity sector to suggest that much of the opposition can be explained in terms of the (short term) losses due to reforms. The book uses insights gained from Indian data to discuss the likelihood of opposition to reforms in other public services and also to examine the performance of electricity reforms in other Asian countries. It is one of the few empirical studies on how gains and losses affect opposition/support to economic/institutional reforms globally and as such is a valuable contribution to development studies, political economy and governance. The book will be of great interest to development professionals, policy makers and researchers. Printed Pages: 248. 028565

Buddhist Philosophy in India and Ceylon, A. Berriedale Keith
32 Buddhist Philosophy in India and Ceylon

A. Berriedale Keith

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1979, 81-7069-109-5 / 9788170691099, Second Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 14 Cms x 23 Cms 
Buddhism can be viewed as a vehicle for transporting its adherents, who are anxious for release from rebirths but least inclined to follow either the path of rigorous asceticism or that of tantalizing speculation on the nature of the self, from this word of misery to Nirvana where all pain ceases. Its message was so simple and direct that all, from prince to plebeian alike, succumbed to its appeal and swelled its ranks. It became the religion of an empire which held sway over the Indian sub-continent; in the process the message of the master was lost. A number of schools, each claiming to echo the authentic voice of the founder, sprang up. The melee that ensued ultimately split Buddhism into two camps-the Hinayana (lesser vehicle) and the Mahayana (greater vehicle). A.B. Keith, in this book, Buddhist Philosophy in India and Ceylon, gives an account of its historical development by thoroughly discussing Buddhism in the Pali Canon, the development in the Hinayana, the philosophy of the Mahayana and Buddhist logic, and lays to rest all misconceptions surrounding it. The fact that this book holds an unique position among books on this subject is attested by its undiminishing popularity ever since its first publication in 1923. Printed Pages: 339. 000777

45 Challenge and Strategy: Rethinking India's Foreign Policy

Rajiv Sikri

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009, 8132100808 / 9788132100805, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The book examines India’s current and looming foreign policy challenges from a strategic and policy-oriented perspective. It analyzes the long-term factors and trends that should determine the country’s foreign policy formulation. The author urges a reappraisal of India’s approach if it is to become a major player in the complex and rapidly evolving 21st century world. Challenge and Strategy: Rethinking India’s Foreign Policy focuses on India’s immediate and strategic neighbourhood. It also looks at important issues like energy security, economic diplomacy, the interaction between defence and diplomacy, and foreign policy institutions. A unique feature of the book is that it combines the perspectives of a historian, a diplomat and a scholar. With many new out-of-the-box ideas and policy suggestions, it makes a valuable contribution to the ongoing debate on foreign policy within India’s strategic community. This lucid and succinct book is a must-read for policy-makers, diplomats and foreign policy analysts. The corporate and business community too will find it professionally relevant. It is also an important knowledge resource for students of Indian politics, international relations, and defence and strategic studies, and others who are interested in India’s foreign policy.

47 Coalition Politics and Hindu Nationalism

Katherine Adeney and Lawrence Saez (eds)

Routledge, London, UK, 0415359813 / 9780415359818, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Religious influence in contemporary politics offers a fertile ground for political-sociological analysis, especially in societies where religion is a very important source of collective identity. In South Asian societies religion can, and often has, provided legitimacy to both governments and those who oppose them. This book examines the emergence of the BJP and the ways in which the Hindu nationalist agenda has been affected by the constraints of being a dominant member of a coalition government. The collected authors take stock of the party's first full term in power, presiding over the diverse forces of the governing NDA coalition, and the 2004 elections. They assess the BJP's performance in relation to its stated goals, and more specifically how it has fared in a range of policy fields--centre-state relations, foreign policy, defence policies, the 'second generation' of economic reforms, initiatives to curb corruption and the fate of minorities. Explicitly linking the volume to literature on coalition politics, this book will be of great importance to students and researchers in the fields of comparative politics and South Asian studies and politics.

48 Contentious Politics and Democratization in Nepal

Mahendra Lawoti (ed.)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2007, 0761936017 / 9780761936015, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
After the restoration of democracy in 1990, Nepal witnessed collective political struggles—identity and gender movements, public protests and strikes, and the Maoist rebellion.This volume examines the causes, consequences and effectiveness of such contentious politics, and their relationship to democratization. Contradicting the popular thesis that contentious politics generally promotes democratization, this topical book shows that some forms of contentious politics can hinder it, even as other forms strengthen democracy. It also suggests that the nature of activities—whether they are coercive or voluntary—lead to different effects on democratization. A timely addition to the literature on contentious politics, democratization, and Nepal, it will be of interest to scholars studying democratic politics, as well as practitioners engaged in nurturing fledgling democracies.
