Ethnicity and Class: Social Divisions in an Indian city
Ethnicity and Class: Social Divisions in an Indian city
Description
From the Jacket:

Belgaum, in India's southern state of Karnataka, is a city that has consistently found itself in the news since the 1950s. The media interest is due to issues arising from its ethnic character. The city is home to multiple linguistic groups with Kannada and Marathi both contending for linguistic, and consequently, social and political prominence.

This fractious backdrop forms the basis of the present book. Ethnicity and Class interrogates issues of ethnic identity in terms of their social location and historicity. Furthermore, it seeks to demonstrate the significance of class in analyzing the dynamics of social life and its contribution in India. What emerges, in consequence, is the notion that a comprehensive understanding of Indian society needs to move beyond the narrow confines of single indicators like caste, religion or language, to more inclusive concepts.

The focus of Belgaum as a paradigm becomes a means to examine the very fabric of urban life with its uneasy mix of religion, sect, caste, language, and class.

In a perceptive Foreword, noted Indian sociologist Andre Beteille introduces the work and situates it in the context of collective identities and their complexities.

This volume will be useful to social scientists, media commentators, and any one interested in comprehending social dynamics in contemporary India.

About the Author:

Gopa Sabharwal is Reader in Sociology Ram College, University of Delhi. She is currently working on a study of the story of Indian broadcasting.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
