The State in India: Past and Present
The State in India: Past and Present
Description
From the Jacket :

Is the state today an offshoot of the pre-colonial Indian state or was it introduced by British colonial rule? This volume reviews critical questions about the emergence of the state in India from ancient times to the modern period. It discusses its role, account various approaches and points of view.

Discussing the state in the context of its historical reflexivity and cultural sensitivity, the book goes beyond the critique of the Indian state from Euro-centric viewpoints. It also addresses fundamental issues central to the multifaceted understanding of the state in India.

The volume offers significant insights into the relationship between state and society and those between secularity and religiosity in India. Combining critical theoretical inputs with sound empirical analyses, it brings together the insight of an interdisciplinary array of experts from across the globe.

Its engagement with a highly topical theme makes this book a significant read for students and scholars, as also journalists, policymakers, and informed lay readers interested in the Indian state.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
