About this Item: Manohar Publishers & Distributors, 2013. Softcover. Condition: New. 5th or later edition. Egalitarianism is neither alien to India nor the gift of the West. Marginalised people everywhere have always aspired to build an egalitarian world. Espousing the perspective of the non-elites, this hook brings out the beauty and resilience of a counter-tradition by visiting some of the major sites of resistance and creativity from below. Ranged against caste and brahmanism, this rational-liberating tradition is to be found in the heterodoxies of various inclinations, particularly Buddhism, the movements of subaltern saint-poets, Surism and Sikhism. This legacy was carried forward in modern India by, more than anybody else, Phule, Iyothee Thass, Narayana Guru, Periyar, and Ambedkar. Recognising the power of culture in the politics of transformation, they had emancipatory visions that embraced the whole of Indian experience, and stand firmly as an alternative to Tilak-Savarkarite, Gandhian, and Nehruvian visions. Their determined, but diverse and resourceless struggles, fought in the teeth of opposition from the caste elites, could not arrest the neo-brahmanism which under colonial patronage and the archaeology of knowledge derived from Orientalism went on to reincarnate and nationalise - itself into octopus-like Hinduism. Their sublime failure adds to their enduring appeal to the marginalised as old forms of hierarchy and hegemony menacingly morph into new structures of inequality in post-1947 India. In some studies, the egalitarian orientation of this tradition is belatedly being recognised, but it is seldom integrated with macro-level theoretical studies on Indian culture and society. An attempt in that direction, this scaring critique of caste and dominant historiography is meant for all (hose who are-or want to be-part of the ongoing struggle of human liberation.

Recognising the power of culture in the politics of transformation they had emancipatory visions that embraced the whole of Indian experience and stand firmly as an alternative to Tilak Savarkarite Gandhian and Nehruvian visions. Their determined but diverse and resourceless struggles fought in the teeth of opposition from the caste elites could not arrest the neo Brahmanism which under colonial patronage and the archaeology of knowledge derived from orientalism went on to reincarnate an nationalise itself into octopus like Hinduism. Their sublime failure adds to their enduring appeal to the marginalised as old forms of hierarchy and hegemony menacingly morph into new structures of inequality in post 1947 India. In some studies the egalitarian orientation of this tradition is belatedly being recognised but it is seldom integrated with macro level theoretical studies on Indian culture and society. An attempt in that direction this searing critique of caste and dominant historiography is meant for all those who are or want to be part of the ongoing struggle of human liberation. 456 pp. Seller Inventory # 57806
