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.

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.
