Experiencing The State
Experiencing The State
Description
From the Jacket :

This provocative volume on the state departs markedly from a conventional analysis that universalizes and standardizes what the state is, does, and means.

The authors engage state and stateness as it is encountered in everyday life, ranging from urban and village life to big dams, war, torture, hospital treatment, cinema attendance, and art exhibitions. The essays locate the state in time, space, and circumstances so that its meaning becomes contingent and evocative rather than definitive and authoritative.

The volume discusses formative discourses on the state, what we may think, feel or say about the state, and what images we may evoke by its various manifestations.

The co-editors introduce the volume by presenting a non-essentialist narrative of state formation and conclude it with an account of how the state has been experience in the post-9/11 world. The twelve essays examine how the state is being experienced in South Asia, the US, Western Europe, the former Soviet Union, and the Far East. Contributors include James Scott, Arundhati Roy, Bruce Cumings, Paul Brass, Sudipta Kaviraj, and Philip Oldenberg.

This volume will be useful to students and scholars of politics, sociology, philosophy, history, law and the environment as well as to lay readers concerned about the consequences and future of the modern state.

About the Author :

Lloyd I. Rudolph is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Chicago. His works (with Susanne Rudolph) include Postmodern Gandhi and Other Essays: Gandhi in the World and at Home (OUP, 2006), Reversing the Gaze: Amar Singh's Diary, A Colonial Subject's Narrative of Imperial India (OUP, 2001), and In Pursuit of Lakshmi (1987).

John Kurt Jacobsen is Research Associate, Program on International Politics, Economics and Security at the University of Chicago and the author of Dead Reckonings: Ideas, Interests, and Politics in the 'Information Age' (1997) and Technical Fouls: Democratic Dilemmas and Technological Change (2000).

Excerpts From Reviews :

"In this enterprising volume Rudolph and Jacobsen assemble a galaxy of South Asian, European and American stars who illuminatingly analyze the varieties of subjective experience of the state." - Brendan O'Leary, University of Pennsylvania

"A bold invitation to stretch our imagination. These wide-randing essays explore the state from below - exposing a subversive, alienating, oppressive leviathan as well as flashes of liberation, empowerment and transformation." - James A. Morone, Brown University

"An excellent volume...bringing a rich and diverse collection of essays on how the state is experienced. The field will be the richer for its publication." - Niraja Gopal Jayal, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi

"Rudolph and Jacobsen's collection of studies on what the state is when it's at home is a brilliant fusion of theoretical acuity and an appreciation of the ordinary." - Anne Norton, University of Pennsylvania

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
Shashi
I'm so proud of your Company, it's so rare to have a good service after sales.... I will recommend you to all my friends.
Colette, Canada
I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA
This is a beautiful website - and very customer friendly - easy to find your way around.
Sonia, UK.
Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
