Poor people confront the state on an everyday basis all over the world. But how do they see the state? This book considers the Indian example where people's accounts, in particular in the countryside, are shaped by encounters staged at the local level, and are also informed by ideas circulated by the government and the broader development community. Drawing extensively on fieldwork conducted in eastern India, the authors review a series of key debates in development studies on participation, good governance, and the structuring of political society in South Asia.

Book Description:

How do poor people in India understand and make use of the state in their daily lives? Drawing on their fieldwork and broad range of expertise, the authors of Seeing the State consider key debates in development studies on participation and good governance to answer these questions. Their work analyses the extent to which poorer people are able to engage the political process as citizens. The book will be of interest to students of anthropology, politics and development, as well as to those studying India more specifically.

About the Author:

Stuart Corbridge is Professor of Geography at the London School of Economics and at the University of Miami. His recent publications include Reinventing India (with John Harriss, 2000).

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Poor people confront the state on an everyday basis all over the world. But how do they see the state, and how are these engagements conducted? This book considers the Indian case where people's accounts, in particular in the countryside, are shaped by a series of encounters that are staged at the local level, and which are also informed by ideas that are circulated by the government and the broader development community. Drawing extensively on fieldwork conducted in eastern India and their broad range of expertise, the authors review a series of key debates in development studies on participation, good governance, and the structuring of political society. They do so with particular reference to the Employment Assurance Scheme and primary education provision. Seeing the State engages with the work of James Scott, James Ferguson and Partha Chatterjee, and offers a new interpretation of the formation of citizenship in South Asia.
