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.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
