Religion has been and is an important element in Indian society and history. It is however rare for the subject to be discussed with the necessary degree of detachment. This volume was therefore planned with the object of providing a collection of studies that would deal with the role of religion in Indian history on the basis of a rigorous application of academic criteria. The results may surprise those who are more familiar with chauvinistic or apologetic interpretations. The editor's introduction and the fifteen chapters range over an extensive period from prehistory to the present day and take up specific problems of crucial significance in exploring the inter relationship between religion and social change. This volume draws on new research and is meant for academics as well as general readers who may find here much that is of relevance to their social and intellectual concerns. 292 pp. Seller Inventory # 65557

About this Item: Aakar Books, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. This book is a significant contribution to the socio-political history of science and technology, combining the all-lndia perspective with a strong regional flavour. lt has tried to explore some of its aspects in colonial lndia. lt refers not merely to British motives and goals of incorporating the component of instruction in scientific knowledge in their educational policy and its utilisation as a tool for territorial expansion but also for developing 'technologies of governance' in Michael Foucault's phrase. The British rulers had acknowledged an explicit connection between instruction of lndians in science and vigour of the industrial revolution in England and growth of its capitalist economy. In their view, this link had a crucial role in fulfilling the needs of the nascent colonial state in lndia. Their vision had influenced the nature of transfer of science and technology from Britain to lndia and direction as well as purpose of its diffusion to some extent. Broadly speaking, the book revolves around two basic issues. One is the role of science and technology in empire-building in Asia specifically in India and financing its maintenance through maximum exploitation of its human, natural, agricultural and other resources by launching and executing a number of exploratory projects, termed as ‘field sciences’. Such an imperial focus was undergirded by a crucial objective i.e. acquisition of hegemony through social control based on intimate knowledge of horizontal and vertical divisions in lndian society around the axes of religion and caste. Formalised as colonial ethnography by the administrators, it was institutionalised as a discipline in the British universities. Second concerns the decoding of the complex response of the Indian intelligentsia including the English-educated as well as the experts and advocates of classical and regional languages which were the key to indigenous knowledge in indigenous sciences, arts and literature. As an integral part of this issue was their varied perception of the rich texture of the long relationship between European scientific knowledge and Indian epistemological traditions from seventeenth century onwards. It was initially dialogic turning into domineering, tinged with hegemonic overtones, after the acquisition of almost absolute political power through conquest or subterfuge by the mid-nineteenth century. However, British claims to superiority in physical power, civilisational achievements and scientific knowledge were fiercely contested. Honest self-introspection coupled with pragmatic considerations not only enabled the far-sighted intellectuals of different hues to acknowledge the adventurous spirit of Western science and its achievements but also to choose the path of learning and selective borrowing for revitatising indigenous knowledge-systems whether Hindu or lslamic. For resolving religious conflicts, these intellectuals followed a negotiatory strategy wherein science became a neutral terrain for exchange of ideas. The book also discusses the innovate use of print technology by Arya Samaj in recasting Hindu consciousness and its alternative of seeking historical guidelines in the past.

What India means may elicit different answers from people today. The answers that might have been given a thousand two thousand or three thousand years ago would have been possibly quite different. This volume explores how notions of India have grown even as a geographical expression the notion (under whatever name) took time to form. Political factors and cultural diffusion both helped in the formation. Nor is the role of outsiders in looking at India as country with some identifiable features of custom belief and language to be ignored. The different contributions in this volume bring out how the idea of India has changed as Indian civilization has developed and received various cultural streams. The contributors also essay the issue of India's transformation into a nation under the stresses generated by the colonial conquest resistance and the influx of modern ideas. The volume closes with discussions how the future of the nation was conceived in the past and what message this has for the people of India today. 270 pp. Seller Inventory # 54646

About this Item: Aakar Books, Delhi, 2006. Hardbound. Condition: As New. New. Contents Preface. Acknowledgements. Introduction. I. Reforming Women 1. Conceptualizing women in the Sikh religious tradition and beyond. 2. Clamping shutters and valorizing women tensions in sculpting gender identities in the colonial Punjab. II. New images identities and roles 3. Fashioning minds and images a case study of Stree Darpan (1909 1928). 4. Jallianwala Bagh Tragedy the catalyst of Indian women's consciousness. III. Between democracy and globalization 5. Jawaharlal Nehru on democracy and women. 6. Globalization and cultural invasion its implications for Indian men and women. Bibliography. Index. This book is a significant contribution to the ambitious project on gender history as it has tried to capture and document crucial turning points in Indian women's consciousness in the course of their transformation from objects to subjects. They have been portrayed in their serious engagement with the problem of relating and reconciling the redefinition of Indian self hood (especially male identity) with the reformulation of images identities and roles of women in the course of their participation in the national freedom struggle against the British imperialist rule. Unlike their European counterpart these women from the Hindu and Sikh middle classes chose to carry on their crusade for gender justice and space in public life without belligerence against men and thus won active support and goodwill of male leadership. The geographical scope of the intensively researched essays in this book is limited to North India particularly Punjab (excluding the princely states) in view of the regionally differentiated intervention of the British colonialism in various regions of India. Despite its limitation in terms of representativeness these essays are glued together by the author's concern for documenting continuities and changes in images identities and roles of women in North India with special reference to Punjab. The book is composed of three distinct strands (i) male led reform projects in the nineteenth century (ii) women as active agents in recasting their own identities and roles and (iii) their gains and predicaments as they live through the democratic experiment and make sense of the Euro American project of globalization and its implications for their status and empowerment. The choice of the source material has been guided by the author's objective of writing contributory history. Since gender history does not exclusively belong to the realm of cultural history these essays draw their raw material from a variety of sources archival including official and non official published and unpublished in combination with oral tradition and its allied sources. Another important source consists of women's writings their diaries speeches and feminist magazines. 272 pp. Seller Inventory # 63618

Since the mid 1970s gender has been introduced as a fundamental category of social cultural and historical reality perception and study. In the recent past there has been a growing interest on the question of gender within historical research. Social history is becoming more intelligible through recent studies on women. Women are no longer invisible in history. In India also gender history is developing into a new area of research and today we have scholars with a much more sophisticated approach than even a decade ago. This monograph marks a welcome recognition of the importance of situating women's history within the broader perspective of social history and illustrates the wide variety of themes in women's history on which historians have been working over the last few decades. The essays in this monograph have been written with great insight and bear ample evidence of painstaking research. Though basically intended as a reference work for scholars who wish to conduct an indepth study on the aspects covered yet lay readers too will find some of the essays interesting. 344 pp. Seller Inventory # 64880
