Secularism, Communalism And the Intellectuals

Price : $19.50
ISBN # : 9788188789283
Author : Zaheer Baber
pages: 99
Edition : Hardcover
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Three Essays Collectives
Published : 2006

These essays focus on the role of fashionable critiques and smug dismissals of secularism and modernity, and the unqualified defense of so-called indigenous traditions in providing intellectual support for the discourse of Hindutva. Zaheer Baber s stern indictment of anti-secular intellectuals should promote a revival of genuine Indian sociology rather than their unimaginative Indology. Baber takes T.N. Madan, Ashis Nandy and Veena Das to task, he offers us a theory of communalism, and he advises us to consider a comparative race framework for the oppressions meted out to the socially suppressed within India: all this in a very short, readable and insightful book. Vijay Prashad. Table of Contents 1. Secularism, Anti-Secularism and Theoretical Bubble-Blowing 2. Hindutva and the Mainstreaming of Bigotry 3. The Racialization of Communal Identity and Conflict in India Author Bio: Zaheer Baber is Professor of Sociology at the University of Toronto, Canada. He is the author of The Science of Empire: Scientific Knowledge, Civilization and Colonial Rule in India (1996) and editor of CyberAsia: The Internet and Society in Asia (2005).
