Appendices Documents on sub categorisation. Index. Caste as a category has played an important role in the analysis of Indian politics. While in the socio political realm it has remained for long a very crucial source of collective identity in the contemporary discourse when India is transforming itself into a modern society it is the sub caste that has acquired supremacy over the broader category of caste in Indian politics. This volume is the first ever attempt to trace this turning point that marks a shift in the collective consciousness of Dalits in India. It provides a comprehensive overview of issues regarding the sub categorisation of Scheduled Castes that have emerged and widely debated in popular media and academic discourses over a decade or so. Recognising the complexity and sensitivity of the issues the book departs from conventional academic and institutionalised writing and is designed to strike a balance between guarded political commentary and critical analysis of the heterogeneous voices that have surfaced. Orientation of individual authors may vary but the coherence that emerged from different viewpoints presents a reasonable understanding of an important topic. 378 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 75007

About this title

Synopsis:

Caste, as a category, has played an important role in the analysis of Indian politics. While in the socio-political realm it has long remained a very crucial source of collective identity, in the contemporary discourse, when India is transforming itself into a modern society, it is the sub-caste that has acquired supremacy over the broader category of caste in Indian politics. This volume traces the shift in the collective consciousness of India's Dalits, a marginalized group in Indian society. The book provides a comprehensive overview of issues regarding the sub-categorization of the scheduled castes that have emerged and which are widely debated in popular media and academic discourses. Recognizing the complexity and sensitivity of the issues, the book is designed to strike a balance between guarded political commentary and critical analysis of the heterogeneous voices that have surfaced. The orientation of individual contributors may vary, but the coherence that emerged from different viewpoints presents a reasonable understanding of an important topic.
