Women and politics of violence: an essay on attitudinal fundamentalism/Chandrakala Padia. 20. Trajectories of women’s fiction in India/Sumita Parmar. Index. Justice is one of the primary qualities of a good political order. With rising disparities of income, wealth and access to opportunity in most of the liberal societies, justice is now a concern of anyone for one’s rightful due. Each one in society wants and expects one’s fair share of wealth, income, political power, social recognition, education, and other resources and opportunities. The basic question is about the specific standard to be employed in assessing what one deserves. To utilitarian theorists, a socially just allocation is ultimately an allocation that produces the greatest sum of happiness. The most ambitious attempt to answer these questions was provided by John Rawls. Rawls’s view is that justice demands ‘maximum equal liberty’ and a distribution of economic benefits which makes the least favoured person as well off as possible. Hayek and Nozick challenge John Rawls’s arguments saying that distributive principles are incompatible with individual liberty. In the traditional distributional approach, the sole emphasis on distribution without an examination of the underlying causes of the mal-distributions was not acceptable to several contemporary political theorists such as, Iris Young, Nancy Frazer, Axel Honneth and Charles Taylor.

About this Item: Sri Satguru Publications/Indian Books Centre, 1991. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. This volume is meant to Honour an outstanding scholar and an efficient Director General of the Archaeological Survey of India, Dr. Debala Mitra, who has drawn admiration from her various colleagues, both Indian and foreign. These scholars have contributed valuable articles in appreciation of her careful and learned contributions. Dr. Debala Mitra was both a serious academician and an indefatigable worker as an archaeologist. As a Buddhist scholar she is renowned for her volumnous works and as a field worker she is credited with several important excavations. But what makes her so loving and admirable to the scholarly World is her humbleness. And in that respect she represents undoubtedly the traditional Indian concept of a scholarly personality, viz. bhavanti namras taravah phalagame, the Trees bow down (only) due to the weight of fruits. Dr. Mitra has retired from her official Career but not from her educational pursuits. This volume contains writings on various Topics of Indian Archaeology starting from the pre-historic Mohen-Jo-Daro upto the late Medieval period. As Mitra herself is a scholar embracing a wide field of Indology so a host of scholars have contributed to various topics on Indian Art and archaeology belonging to a long period and wide area. As she was also engaged in the field work of excavation and in the Study of art in Nepal, this volume contains three articles on the art and Architecture of Nepal. We thank all our friends and scholars who share our feelings in congratulating Dr. Debala Mitra on her sixty-fifth birthday. Contents: 1.
