Democracy and its institutions by André Béteille( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume reflects Beteille's engagement with the conception of formal, legal, political institutions (Parliament, Judiciary, and political parties), and practices in specific domains of public and political life- rule of law, constitutional morality, the opposition-without which democracies cannot function or survive. The focus on institutions highlights the divergence between ideal and practice in the operation of democracy. The author contends that the institutions of civil society require an effective constitutional framework for their proper functioning, and that such a framework suffers when social movements set themselves continuously against the State's authority. The relationship between government and opposition acquires great value and significance in a democracy, and this issue has been examined in detail. The volume not only points to what remains neglected in the study of democracy but also offers an understanding of the ground on which democracies rest."--Publisher's website
Anti-Utopia : essential writings of André Beteillé by André Béteille( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bringing together the essence of Beteille's ideas and writing, this collection of 19 essays has been specially selected and introduced by Dipankar Gupta. The book is divided into five sections, each of which is devoted to Professor Beteille's varied intellectual interests. The essays range from the significance of the comparative method to ideas of equality and inequality, and finally to issues regarding civil society and institutional well-being. In each instance, Beleille's characteristic signature of blending theory to Indian reality is clearly evident. It is because of his erudition that he is unarguably, one of the most quoted scholars on India." "For its scholarship and relevance, this volume will be indispensable to students, scholars, and teachers of sociology, social anthropology, politics, socio-legal studies, and history, besides an informed general audience."--Jacket
