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

Prashanti, USA
Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter
Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
