Book Description:

The phenomenon of caste has probably aroused more controversy than any other aspect of Indian life. This volume explores the emergence of ideas and practices which gave rise to the so-called 'caste-society'. Using an historical and anthropological approach, the author frames her analysis in the context of India's economic and social order, interpreting caste as a contingent and variable response to changes in India's political landscape through the colonial conquest. The book's wide-ranging analysis offers one of the most powerful statements ever written on caste in South Asia.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 235 x 161 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. 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. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521264341
