Bayly, Susan:

Caste, Society and Politics in India from the Eighteenth Century to the Modern Age - hardcover

ISBN: 9780521264341

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR], The phenomenon of caste has probably aroused more controversy than any other aspect of Indian life and thought. Susan Bayly's cogent and sophisticated analysis explores the emergence of the ideas, experiences and practices which gave rise to the so-called 'caste society' from the pre-colonial period to the end of the twentieth century. Using an historical and anthropological approach, she frames her analysis within the context of India's dynamic economic and social order, interpreting caste not as an essence of Indian culture and civilization, but rather as a contingent and variable response to the changes that occurred in the subcontinent's political landscape through the colonial conquest. The idea of caste in relation to Western and Indian 'orientalist' thought is also explored. Table of contents: Introduction 1. Historical origins of a 'caste society' 2. The 'Brahman Raj': kings and service people, c. 1700-1830 3. Western 'Orientalists and the Colonial perception of caste' 4. Caste and the modern nation: incubus or essence 5. The everyday experience of caste in Colonial India 6. Caste debate and the emergence of Gandhian Nationalism 7. State policy and 'reservations': the politicization of caste-based social welfare goals 8. Caste in the everyday life of Independent India 9. 'Caste wars' and the mandate of violence Conclusion. Adopting an historical and anthropological approach, the book seeks to account for the development and persistence of India's caste system over 350 years. Unlike many studies of the subject which are highly polemical or too technical for non-specialists, this volume is intended for a student and general market. One of the most powerful statements ever written on the subject of caste in India. 440 pages - 12 half-tones 3 maps Versandfertig in über 4 Wochen, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot
