Human creativity global/local historical forces (meta narrative) and industrialization the emergence of the larges scale Indian Steel Industry under the British colonial rule 1880 1907. Bibliography. Index. While refuting contemporary fashionable discourse on History from below which is based on cultural determinism the author of the present volume urges scholars to use their own innate creativity (as human agency) collectively to build an alternative theoretical framework that can open up the possibility of creating an alternative state of being and alternative kinds of societies. While suggesting one of many possible alternatives the author has attempted to reinstate in the present volume the notion of human agency as human being's innate capacity for creativity which is closely related to the concept of humaneness. Author believes that such interpretation will open up the possibility of developing a new theoretical framework that will be devoid of binaries such as traditional/modern core/periphery progressive/backward national/global. Based on these ideas the present volume is an attempt to show one of many possibilities of writing a history of the world from an alternative perspective derived from the experiences of the social formations cultural formations and class struggles in India. The focus on India is important (not merely as a local history or colonial history) because it represents the historical experiences of one billion plus people with all possible historical political economic and cultural scenarios and its interactions with many other societies over time. Author hopes that suggestions hypothesized in this volume might help in writing histories everywhere of women working people oppressed people oppressed societies as well as of oppressive societies from the vantage point of their own societies and their interactions with other societies without using binary terms. Such history writing will allow oppressed people and oppressed societies to break away from the prevailing notion of inevitable fate about their present miserable condition and hopeless future choices as they are made to believe about the inevitability of globalization about the so called development and their consequences. 348 pp. Seller Inventory # 58668
