Item Description: Permanent Black/Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd, 2008. Softcover. Book Condition: New. In South India, the categories ?Brahmin? and ?non-Brahmin? are frequently treated as self-evident, both within contemporary Tamil politics and in mainstream academic discourses. Departing from this political and academic ?common sense?, the present book historicizes the complex processes by which these categories came into being and acquired political power over the past century. Using archival, regional-language, and unconventional sources, M.S.S. Pandian unsettles the ?self-evident? quality of these two categories and opens up a rich theoretical-critical space to rethink and understand them. In the process of unravelling and historicizing the so-called ?naturalness? of ?Brahmin? and ?non-Brahmin?, this book also offers a new perspective on colonialism in South India. Stepping away from mainstream nationalist accounts of colonialism, it shows the ways in which colonialism was, for various strata of Tamil society, both a moment of crisis as well as one of possibilities. The book argues that it was this dual and ambiguous quality of colonial rule which facilitated new ways of looking at the figure of the Brahmin, even as it enabled the making of a non-Brahmin identity. The importance of this book for understanding politics and society in Tamil South India over the past hundred and more years can scarcely be exaggerated. The Non-Brahmin writings and discursive strategies of E.V. Ramasamy ?Periyar?, Maraimalai Adigal, and Iyothee Thoss, alongside those of a wide array of Brahminic thinkers and propagandists (both within Congress and outside), are presented here with a degree of sophistication and analytic skill not available in other works of political, social, and intellectual history on the Indian South. This book will interest every historian, sociologist, and political analyst of India, as well as all who wish to understand anti-Brahmin and anti-upper-caste social movements. Printed Pages: 286.

Item Description: Permanent Black/Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd, 2012. Softcover. Book Condition: New. The twelfth volume of Subaltern Studies comprises essays broadly linked by an interest in the history of Muslims and Dalits in South Asia, or with the manner in which dominant histories in the subcontinent have been ?fabricated? Shahid Amin examines how a persistent image of ?the Mussalman? came into being via the work of Hindi writers and publicists in the late nineteenth century. He suggests that this image was not derived from popular memory but conjured up for political deployment. He reveals the enormous mileage gained by this image, both ?then? and ?now? M.T. Ansari looks at the history of Mappila peasant ?uprisings? in the early twentieth century, and at how these came to be discursively constructed to arrive at an image of the fanatic Mussalman. This then yielded the argument that the Muslim fanatic was a religious fundamentalist who had either to be confined or killed. This essay also thus carries resonances of present-day fabrications of Islam. Faisal Fatehali Devji?s essay on Gandhi?s politics of friendship offers an interesting counterpoint to the preceding two. Focusing on the Khilafat Movement, it studies friendship in one of Gandhi?s boldest experiments?his attempt to rethink political relations between Hindus and Muslims. In looking at Gandhi as ?a spoiler within the rhetoric of colonial India?, Devji points implicitly to the importance of Gandhian ideology in contemporary India. Printed Pages: 324.

Item Description: Sage Publications, 2015. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. The Image Trap analyses the phenomenon of M.G. Ramachandran (MGR), the legendary film star-cum-politician of Tamil Nadu, as a modern-day political myth. This book offers fascinating details about the extent to which MGR was successful in creating a stereotypical cinematic persona, and what repercussions it had on Tamil Nadu. Delineating the cultural elements that were meticulously mobilised to constitute MGR?s on-screen image, it analyses the popularity he enjoyed among the poor whose interests he constantly violated. This is done by means of what Pandian termed as constructed biographies which are popular narratives that ingeniously present the cinematic as real. It brings out the interface and interplay between the media and political processes. A blend of essay writing, political rhetoric and scholarship, the book features the complete filmography of MGR and is a must for understanding the contemporary politics of the state.

Item Description: Sage, 2015. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Social scientists in India have made substantial headway in understanding forms of counter-hegemonic politics of the subaltern classes (lower caste/poor people). However, there is little analysis of how the ruling elite produce consent for their domination and hegemony from the subaltern classes whom they make use of. The author takes this as a point of departure and explores subaltern consciousness under conditions of hegemony. This is done through a detailed study of the immense popularity enjoyed by the late M.G. Ramachandran (MGR), the film action-cum-politician of Tamil Nadu, among the subaltern classes whose interests he constantly and blatantly violated. The book begins by delineating the cultural elements which were meticulously mobilised to constitute a stereotypical cinematic persona of MGR. Accounting for the success of this cinematic persona among the subaltern classes, the book details how the elements that went into the making of MGR’s film persona were a selective appropriation of the cultural idioms of the subalterns themselves. The book further analyses how the cinematic persona of MGR was encoded as though it represented the political persona of MGR. This was done by means of what Pandian terms as ‘constructed biographies’ which were popular narratives that ingeniously present what was cinematic as real. A special feature of the book is its engagement with MGR’s popularity, both as an actor and a politician, with women. Knowingly crossing disciplinary boundaries, the book offers itself to political scientists, historians of the contemporary, and scholars of film studies, popular culture and gender studies.
