|Conservation from the Margins by Umesh Srinivasan and Nandini Velho
: Rs975 ISBN: 9789352872824
The diverse landscape of India is home to globally important wildlife species and habitats. However, a rapidly growing economy and human population, along with socio-political issues such as ethnic and political marginalisation, have serious, if often unrecognised, impacts on this vast biodiversity.
While some of India‚€™s conservation issues‚€”the tiger and elephant conservation, mining and global warming‚€”have gained currency in media and policy discourse, several others remain confined only to the academic world of conservation biologists and environmental activists, and rarely enter either public consciousness or public policy. Conservation from the Margins talks about some of these neglected conservation issues.
Conservation and environmental degradation cannot be confined to domains of only the state and activists; communities are also actively engaged with their natural surroundings. The essays in this volume do not merely analyse the ecological aspects of these environmental problems unidimensionally; instead, they examine the complex intersection of the natural with the social.
The chapters range from the realities of illegal wildlife trade in India to the impact of naxalism on the Palamau Tiger Reserve, and from conservation in marine fisheries to identity politics in the Gangetic fisheries. The result of extensive fieldwork done by some of the finest biologists and sociologists across the country, the book highlights the personal experiences of the scientists to understand and resolve the issues.
While the stories told are specific to India, the overarching questions this volume raises about conservation are relevant to the developing world, particularly to Asia, Sub-saharan Africa and Latin America.
This volume will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students and scholars of environmental studies, sociology, ecology and conservation.
|Migrants and the Neoliberal City by Ranabir Samaddar
: Rs1150 ISBN: 9789352872909
India nurtures a contradiction between two images of its cities‚€”they are the engines of economic growth and, at the same time, an inadequate and contested space for its various residents and subjects. Migrants and the Neoliberal City, a culmination of the research conducted by the Calcutta Research Group on rural migrants as the core of the urban poor in India, shows us why and how this contradiction plays out in the lives of migrants, on whose labour the city thrives.
This collection of twelve essays, based on extensive research and fieldwork, investigates the experience of migrating to three of India‚€™s populous metropolitan cities: Kolkata, Mumbai and Delhi. They focus on the interrelations between urban policy, governance, forms of labour, migration, and neoliberalism as the political ideology motivating increasing urbanisation of India. It also shows how cities are increasingly turning into sites of conflict, fragmentation and gentrification, fragmentation and acute class conflict.
Since the migrant is central to neoliberal urban development and migrant labour is critical to the transformation of the city, their position in the informal, unorganised sector and their vulnerability to violence makes migrant labour and life precarious. This book documents and examines the coping strategies of such migrants, new forms of urban struggles, and resistances to legal and policy regimes. Focusing on the connections between the material conditions of labour and specific issues such as old age, rent, wage forms, etc., this book also shows how the recruitment and dispersal of this migrant labour in turn restructures urban spaces.
An important addition to the growing literature on Indian urbanism and urbanisation, this book will interest policy analysts and students and scholars of sociology, migration studies, development studies, urban studies and geography.
Ecology of Survival: Life and Labour in the River Lands of East and
North-East India by Madhurilata Basu, Rajat Roy and Ranabir Samaddar
: Rs925 ISBN: 9789352873616
The world over, resource extraction and an extractive mode of economy have impacted on various population groups, and consequent conflicts over natural resources have damaged earlier modes of resource sharing. The river lands are one such resourceful space where conflicts relating to the development discourse are played out. These once economically-viable lands have become sites of unplanned growth, rampant commercialisation, administrative apathy and the politics of resource extraction.
Drawing on intensive field studies and research, Political Ecology of Survival studies how people living along the river banks, and ‚€˜with the rivers‚€™, of Bihar, deltaic Bengal and the North-East negotiate nature on the one hand, and the economy, politics and administration on the other. It presents a close look at a landscape that is the battleground of environment, economy, and politics, and offers a fresh look at how best to preserve river systems so as to continue with the life and livelihood of humankind.
The communities studied here, heavily dependent on natural resources and hailing from the lowest rungs of society, are forced to negotiate environmental and developmental challenges and related displacements and migration. The essays explore, among others, the problem of floods and erosion in the Brahmaputra valley, resource crises, resource sharing, large scale displacements of population groups in deltaic Bengal and the pressing problem of migration around Barak river in the North-East.
This unique collection will interest students and scholars of migration studies, environmental studies, political science and anthropology. It will also be invaluable for development activists, journalists, policymakers and NGOs working in the field.
|Youth Migration in Emerging India: Trends, Challenges and Opportunities by S. Irudaya Rajan and P. Sivakumar
: Rs895 ISBN: 9789352873890
Migration is a natural outcome when society faces a shortage of resources or opportunities. While migration in India has been studied extensively, these discussions often do not include one of the most important stakeholders involved‚€”young people. Youth constitute a valuable human capital resource base for India, and migration of young people has become more frequent as a result of neoliberal policies, coupled with social, political, economic and demographic conditions.
Youth Migration in Emerging India focuses on this challenging and neglected aspect of Indian society. Although marriage-based migration dominates youth migration in India, this volume focuses on the significance of education and employment-related migration through the lens of the youth.
Relying on primary data collected from the field and secondary data from sources like the Census of India and National Sample Survey Office, the authors analyse the causes of youth migration and its impacts on the Indian economy. Young people opt for migration to improve their economic prospects, and the demand for skilled youth is growing. In this context, young people themselves become a pull factor for migration, as the remittances they send home improve both their economic prospects and the Indian economy.
The book focuses on several aspects of youth migration, ranging from distress migration to Indian cities for survival to the voluntary move made by affluent, urban Indians for higher education abroad. Also studied are the latest National Youth Policies of the government, which identifies migrant youth as a target group.
An important contribution to the area of youth and migration studies, this volume will be useful to students and scholars of migration studies, development studies, public policy and planning, and policy think tanks.
|Nursing and Empire: Gendered Labor and Migration from India to the United States by Sujani K. Reddy
: Rs995 ISBN: 9788125062301
Drawing on extensive archival research and compelling life-history interviews, Nursing and Empire examines the lives of Indian nurses, which have unfolded against a complex backdrop of Anglo-American capitalist imperialism and the emergence of a postcolonial Indian nation-state still tied to this global system.
The bookbegins with the movement of white, U.S.-based single female medical missionaries to India and proceeds through the remaking of the colonial medical map through race-based segregation in the U.S. and the ‚€œopen door imperialism‚€ of the Rockefeller Foundation in India. It ends with the Cold War emigration of Indian nurses as one outcome of the critical role played by U.S. medical interests in a colonial ‚€œcivilizing mission.‚€
Complicating the long-held view of Indian women as passive participants in the movement of skilled labor in this period, Reddy demonstrates how these "women in the lead" pursued new opportunities afforded by their mobility. At the same time, Indian nurses also confronted stigmas based on the nature of "women‚€™s work", religious and caste differences within the migrant community, and the racial and gender hierarchies of the U.S.
Spanning two centuries and multiple geographic spaces, Nursing and Empire sheds light on histories of capitalist expansion and marginalized women‚€™s histories of resistance and labor migration.
This book will be of considerable interest to scholars and students of gender studies, labor history, and U.S.≠≠‚€“India relations.
Patriarchy and Ethnicity on Sri Lankan Plantations : Two Centuries of
Power and Protest by Kumari Jayawardena and Rachel Kurian
: Rs950 ISBN: 9788125058786
Class, Patriarchy and Ethnicity on Sri Lankan Plantations takes as its central theme the plantations of Sri Lanka, from their inception in the early nineteenth century to almost the present day in the twenty-first. Drawing on a wealth of archival material, it offers a detailed and compelling empirical narrative of the lives and struggles of plantation workers, who have constituted, for much of modern Sri Lankan history, the single largest organised workforce in the country. In doing so, it explores the complex links between power and class, gender and ethnic hierarchies both on the plantations and outside and crucially situates the labour movement on the plantations within the wider political and social economy of Sri Lanka.
The current volume begins by tracing the origins of the plantations in then Ceylon, the acquisition of Indian Tamil workers and the labour practices during the colonial period. This in turn contextualises the subsequent discussion on rising labour and political consciousness among plantation workers and their struggles for labour and democratic rights, which the authors track through the post-Independence period and into the twenty-first century. Particular attention is paid to the role of political parties, trade unions and other pressure groups in supporting or opposing these rights, within a background of class, ethnic, linguistic and nationalist consciousness and chauvinism. The book provides an astute analysis of the strategic alliances and political manoeuvres made by the various actors in this struggle.
This volume offers readers a truly integrated history of the labour movement on Sri Lankan plantations. It balances an empirically rich narrative with a nuanced analysis of the class, ethnic, linguistic and political consciousness that has informed and opposed the struggles of plantation labour on the island.
|Tibetan Refugees in India: Education, Culture and Growing Up in Exile by Mallica Mishra
: Rs1050 ISBN: 9788125054979
Tibetan Refugees in India focuses on the issue of education for the Tibetan community as an important ingredient conceived to not only protect and preserve tradition but also engage with modernity by the Tibetan Government in Exile. The volume recognises the dilemmas that the community grapples with in trying to achieve a balance between ‚€˜tradition‚€™ and ‚€˜modernity‚€™ in education and the strategies it has employed to deal with the issue. Life in exile is seen as a continuous learning experience for the community with trying to be ‚€˜exclusive‚€™ yet also to prevent ‚€˜exclusion‚€™ in a modernised world.
The Introduction sets the tone with the idea of and about refugeeism as a complex and problematic global reality. The chapters examine the educational options available to the Tibetan youth‚€”Tibetan schools and Indian schools respectively. It details the curriculum and pedagogy in both sets of schools and the impact it has on the Tibetan youth, their sense of identity, nationhood, Tibet in their imagination and their attitude towards the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan struggle.
|Impossible Citizens: Dubai‚€™s Indian Diaspora by Neha Vora
: Rs975 ISBN: 9788125051770
Indian communities have existed in the Gulf emirate of Dubai for more than a century. Since the 1970s, workers from South Asia have flooded into the emirate, enabling Dubai‚€™s huge construction boom. They now comprise its largest non-citizen population. Though many migrant families are middle class and second- , third-, or even fourth generation residents, Indians cannot become legal citizens of the United Arab Emirates. Instead they are classified as temporary guest workers. In Impossible Citizens, Neha Vora draws on her ethnographic research in Dubai‚€™s Indian-dominated downtown to explore how Indians live suspended in a state of permanent temporariness
While their legal status defines them as perpetual outsiders, Indians are integral to the Emirati nation-state and its economy. At the same time, Indians‚€”even those who have established thriving diasporic neighborhoods in the emirate‚€”disavow any interest in formally belonging to Dubai and instead consider India their home. Vora shows how Indians in Dubai, despite their inability to formally belong to the emirate, do in fact practice and narrate many forms of belonging and informal citizenship. In so doing, this book contributes to new understandings of contemporary citizenship, migration, and national identity, ones that differ from liberal democratic models, such as those in India and the West, and that highlight how Indians, rather than Emiratis, are the quintessential‚€”yet impossible citizens of Dubai.
Impossible Citizens would be of interest to students and scholars of migration, diaspora studies, sociology, social anthropology, and studies of political economy, state and citizenship. This book will also be of particular interest to Indian audiences, many of whom have personal, financial, or other connections to the Gulf region, which in many ways is a part of a transnational imaginary of Indiannesss.
|Memories and Movements: Borders and Communities in Banni, Kutch, Gujarat by Rita Kothari
: Rs1150 ISBN: 9788125050490
Situated in northern Kutch in Gujarat, the Banni grasslands lie on the border dividing India and Pakistan. It is home to diverse communities; while Muslim pastoralists form the majority, one also finds Dalit Hindus, and a community that is neither Hindu nor Muslim. Banni‚€™s people, have for centuries, moved freely between Sindh (Pakistan) and Kutch (India)‚€”a reason why, perhaps, the Indo-Pak border has not been able to produce a sense of bounded citizenship in them. While still referring to ‚€˜Sindh‚€™ as their homeland, they recognise Gujarat as their governing regime. These two experiences of belonging give rise to the cultural imaginary of Banni.
Memories and Movements is an ethnographic account of present-day Banni society, where the rhetoric of ‚€˜change and development‚€™ have made inroads quietly but surely. Poised on the brink of socio-economic transformation, it hosts huge tourist populations for a few months every year. The result is an immense demand for its distinct products and services such as its handicrafts and music.
The labour of its women feeds the embroidery industry in Banni. Kothari raises poignant questions, among others, about the position of Banni‚€™s women: Do the handicraft industries give women more freedom and self-determination? Or do they entrench gender-inequality further?
The author also tells the story of the entrepreneurial success and resultant social mobility of a hitherto ‚€˜untouchable‚€™ community. In presenting a picture of Banni‚€™s complex, tiered society, she shows how its people navigate social borders on an everyday basis and transcend territorial borders through memory, song and story. In her insightful foreword to this volume, Urvashi Butalia highlights how Kothari‚€™s ‚€˜questioning of the very notions of region and nation‚€™ is ‚€˜remarkably free of jargon, and yet deeply informed by theory‚€™.
|Decolonization in South Asia: Meanings of Freedom in Post-independence West Bengal, 1947‚€“52 by Sekhar Bandyopadhyay
: Rs775 ISBN: 9788125047063
This book explores the meanings and complexities of India‚€™s experience of transition from colonial to the post-colonial period. It focuses on the first five years‚€”from Independence on 15 August 1947 to the first general election in January 1952‚€”in the politics of West Bengal, the new Indian province that was created as a result of the Partition.
The author, a specialist on the history of modern India, discusses what freedom actually meant to various individuals, communities and political parties, how they responded to it, how they extended its meaning and how in their anxiety to confront the realities of free India, they began to invent new enemies of their newly acquired freedom. By emphasizing the representations of popular mentality rather than the institutional changes brought in by the process of decolonization, he draws attention to other concerns and anxieties that were related to the problems of coming to terms with the newly achieved freedom and the responsibility of devising independent rules of governance that would suit the historic needs of a pluralist nation.
Decolonization in South Asia analyses the transitional politics of West Bengal in light of recent developments in post-colonial theory on nationalism, treating the ‚€˜nation‚€™ as a space for contestation, rather than a natural breeding ground for homogeneity in the complex political scenario of post-independence India.
The book will appeal to academics interested in political science, sociology, and cultural and social anthropology.
|Exclusion, Social Capital and Citizenship: Contested Transitions in South Africa and India by Tina Uys and Sujata Patel(Eds.)
: Rs1450 ISBN: 9788125047780
Historically, India and South Africa have a lot in common; the migration of indentured and passenger Indians to South Africa, the role and influence of Mahatma Gandhi in the freedom movements, their shared commitment to install democracy in their respective countries, and other such issues. Post-Independence, battling enormous poverty and inequality, these countries have undergone transitions at different points in history in their endeavour to restructure the economy and polity through political projects which are largely elite-driven.
Exclusion, Social Capital and Citizenship shows how though transition always carries the promise of inclusion for social groups inhabiting the margins of society, there is nothing inherently inclusive about the elite-dominated transitions that occurred in South Africa and India. The people of these countries, therefore, have articulated alternate visions of resistance to contest these.
Divided into three sections, this volume analyses whether we can use the prism of one experience to assess another in some other country and the lessons learnt from them through such contextualised comparisons. These and other methodological issues are studied in this collection. The book also describes how diasporic Indians deal with their minority status in post-apartheid South Africa; the intellectual resources that the Muslim minority groups in India employ to articulate their identity and assert their citizenship; and redress policies for groups previously disadvantaged on the basis of race in South Africa and caste in India.
Bringing together sociologists from both South Africa and India, this volume is a must-read for students and scholars of sociology, diaspora studies and political science.
|Kerala‚€™s Gulf Connection, 1998‚€“2011: Economic and Social Impact of Migration by K. C. Zachariah & S. Irudaya Rajan
: Rs1125 ISBN: 9788125049357
This volume situates the phenomenon of migration from Kerala to the Gulf in its economic and social contexts. Based on migration surveys carried out by the authors, the volume is a comparative study of the surveys carried out in 1998, 2003 and 2008. It looks at the changes migration has brought about in the lives of the families left behind by the migrant. It also carries a two-part epilogue. While the first analyses the panel data from the 1998 and 2008 surveys, the second evaluates the results from the most recent survey conducted in 2011 that throws light on migration during the global financial crises of 2008 and its aftermath on employment in the Middle East.
|Modern Migrations: Gujarati Indian Networks in New York and London by Maritsa V. Poros
: Rs975 ISBN: 9788125044895
Although globalization seems like a recent phenomenon linked to migration, some groups have used social networks to migrate great distances for centuries. To gain new insights into migration today, Modern Migrations takes a closer look at the historical presence of globalization and how it organized migration and social networks. With a focus on the lives of Gujarati Indians in New York and London, this book explains migration patterns through different kinds of social networks and relations.
Gujarati migration flows span four continents, across several centuries. Maritsa Poros reveals the inner workings of their social networks and how these networks relate to migration flows. Championing a relational view, she examines the kinds of ties prevalent in the different niches that Gujaratis occupy in the economies of New York and London, from shopkeepers to diamond dealers and doctors. In the process she speaks to central debates in the field about the economic and cultural roots of the causes of migration and its surprising consequences.
Modern Migrations will be of interest to anyone who has thought about India‚€™s rich history of trade and migration and the kinds of lives that Indian immigrants live in places like New York and London. It will be useful for students and scholars of migration studies.
|Indian Diaspora in the United States: Brain Drain or Gain? by Anjali Sahay
: Rs1250 ISBN: 9788125042662
|Art of Not Being Governed, The: An Anarchist History of Upland Southeast Asia by James C. Scott
: Rs1425 ISBN: 9788125039211
For two thousand years the disparate groups that now reside in Zomia (a mountainous region the size of Europe that consists of portions of seven Asian countries) have field the projects of the organised state societies that surround them‚€” slavery, conscription, taxes, corvee labour, epidemics and warfare. Significantly, writes James C.Scott in this iconoclastic study, these people are not innocent who have yet to benefit from all that civilization has to offer; they have assessed state-based civilizations and have made a conscious choice to avoid them. The book is essentially an ‚€œanarchist history‚€ , the first-ever examination of the huge literature on state-making that evaluates why people would deliberately and reactively remain stateless. Among the strategies employed by the people of Zomia to remain stateless are physical dispersion in rugged terrain; agriculture practices that enhance mobiliy; pliable ethnic identities; devotion to prophetic, millenarian leaders; and maintenance of a largely oral culture that allows them to reinvent their histories and genealogies as they move between and around states.
The Art of Not Being Governed challenges us with a radically different approach to history that views events from the perspective of stateless peoples and redefines state-making as a form of ‚€œinternal colonialism.‚€ In contrast to the Western ideal of the social contract as fundamental to state-making Scott finds the disturbing mechanism of subjugation to be more in line with the historical facts in mainland area studies that will be applicable to other runaway, fugitive, and marooned communities, they Gypsies, Cossacks, tribes fleeing slave raiders, Marsh Arabs, or San-bushmen.
In accessible language, James Scott, recognized worldwide as an eminent authority in Southeast Asian, peasant, and agrarian studies, tells the story of the peoples of Zomia and their unlikely odyssey in search of self-determination. Along the way he redefines our views on Asian politics, history, and demographics, and even our fundamental ideas about what constitutes civilization.
|Contested Spaces: Citizenship and Belonging in Contemporary Times by Meenakshi Thapan (Ed.)
: Rs820 ISBN: 9788125040927
Individuals and groups negotiate increasingly complex relationships between the local, the national and the global. Contested Spaces: Citizenship and Belonging in Contemporary Times focuses on the everyday experience of divided or contested allegiances, and foregrounds the experiential, the embodied and the emotional, while also examining the social and the cultural.
Divided into three sections, this volume is broadly grouped around the themes of exclusionary practices, experiences of identity, and gender. The first section opens with a powerful commentary on the practices deployed by the state to enforce adherence to a desired narrative of the nation-state. It goes on to show how the state uses the concept of ‚€˜time‚€™ in schooling practices as a means for the further marginalisation and exclusion of underprivileged subjects. It also demonstrates how immigrant and minority students experience processes of ‚€˜othering‚€™ in multicultural/ institutional context.
In discussing the question of identity, the second section analyses the role of the state and shows how immigrants, seeking to establish a legitimate place for themselves, have to constantly grapple with their dual allegiance. Issues of identity are reflected in art as well as where the state plays a role in either promoting or modifying folk art. Aesthetics, as a result, become embroiled with politics when traditional tribal art and craft become politicised‚€”it may be deployed in protest, or co-opted to facilitate assimilation.
Section three variously examines the changing nature of masculinity in Sri Lanka and its relevance to the dynamics of conflict within the self and the nation; the Buddhist Medaw nuns of Myanmar, whose heightened asceticism to create an identity for themselves is co-opted by the state; and four films made by Muslim women in the West that seek to sensitise Western audiences about the war in Afghanistan by using an approach that valourises the West and denigrates Islam and Afghanistan.
Based on fieldwork in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Denmark, Canada and USA, this cross-cultural, multi-country study will be useful for students and scholars of sociology, political science, identity politics, diaspora and migration studies.
|At Home in Diaspora: South Asian Scholars and the West by Assayag, Jackie and Veronique Benei (Eds.)
: Rs250 ISBN: 9788178241678
This book, comprising a blend of autobiography and intellectual history by some of South Asia‚€™s foremost contemporary historians and sociologists, shows that the postcolonial scholar‚€™s presence in the West is a phenomenon worthy of analysis. While considering nomadic theories in an age of globalisation, this book documents the complexities of the relationship between culture, knowledge, and the individual.
|India Abroad - Diasporic Cultures of Postwar America and England by Sandhya Shukla
: Rs675 ISBN: 9788125027751
India Abroad analyses the development of Indian diasporas in the United States and England from 1947, the year of Indian independence, to the present. Across different spheres of culture---festivals, enterpreneurial enclaves, fiction, autobiography, newspapers, music and film---migrants have created India as a way to negotiate life in the multicultural United States and Britain. Sandhya Shukla considers how Indian diaspora has become a contact zone for various formations of identity and disclosures of nation. She suggests that carefully reading the production of a diasporic sensibility, one that is not simply an outgrowth of the nation-state, helps us to conceive of multiple imaginaries, of America, England, and India, as articulated to one another. Both the connections and disconnections among peoples who see themselves as in some way Indian are brought into focus by this comparativist approach.
This book provides a unique combination of rich ethnographic work and textual readings to illuminate the theoretical concerns central to the growing fields of diaspora studies and transnational cultural studies. Shukla argues that the multi-sitedness of diaspora compels a rethinking of time and space in anthropology, as well as in other disciplines. Necessarily, the standpoint of global belonging and citizenship makes the boundaries of the "America" in American studies a good deal more porous. And in dialogue with South Asian studies and Asian American studies, this book situates postcolonial Indian subjectivity within migrants' transnational recastings of the meanings of race and ethnicity. Interweaving conceptual and material understandings of diaspora, India Abroad finds that in constructed Indias, we can see the contradictions of identity and nation that are central to the globalised condition in which all peoples, displaced and otherwise, live
|Human Security in South Asia: Gender, Energy, Migration and Globalisation by P. R. Chari and Sonika Gupta (Ed.s)
: Rs630 ISBN: 9788187358091
THE WORD SECURITY has a military connotation and refers to the activities involved in protecting or defending a country, in which the state has a central role. This book argues that the state provides as well as threatens security. Therefore, it needs to be checked and balanced by broadening the concept of security to include both military and non-military threats such as those related to social, economic, ecological and political causes.
