The intimate enemy : loss and recovery of self under colonialism by Ashis Nandy( Book )

47 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defying conventional studies of colonial domination, this enduring work emphasizes the importance of visions in fighting oppression and the cultural resources that keep such visions open and plural. Colonialism, it argues, damaged both colonial societies, and Indian anti-imperialism found in Gandhi's counter-modernity a new language of dissent built on the lifestyle, values, and psychology of everyday life in India and on dissenting Western voices. First published in 1983 and in print for over twenty-five years, this edition of the classic work is being published with a new postscript by the author. It will appeal to general readers and students and scholars of sociology, history, politics, psychology, and cultural studies

Time warps : silent and evasive pasts in Indian politics and religion by Ashis Nandy( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A discussion of how the large, amorphous and impersonal Indian state has affected the everyday lives of its citizens since Independence in 1947. It focuses on how the multiple nature of psychological identity in the sub-continent - personal, spiritual, sexual and political - was affected by the imposition of a stridently secular ethos by the country's political, educational and cultural elites. This, argues Ashis Nandy, explains much of the dislocation evident in contemporary Indian society, a by-product of which has been a renewed search for certainty manifested in the appeal of Hindu and Islamic "fundamentalisms". Further dislocation is being wrought by the harsh introduction of India to the global economy, with its concomitant creation of new ideals of prosperity and social and personal "development" which are often at variance with traditional precepts. Such dislocation has also precipitated a crisis in how Indians view their past and their present (the "Time Warps" of the book's title), the more so in a society where unhistoricised pasts - myths, legends, epics and unofficial memories - predominate and where clues to the future lie scattered in diverse pasts created by human ingenuity. India retains its knowledge that refuses to die - comprising non-conventional systems of healing, non-formal modes of education, deviant theories of ethnic or communal violence and amity, and so on. Many who live with these alternatives are in constant dialogue with their pasts, not defensively, but as a way of accessing their own tacit knowledge. This volume is a plea for the retention of indigenous systems of knowledge and experience in the face of the juggernaut of globalization and its drive for cultural and economic homogeneity
Creating a nationality : the Ramjanmabhumi movement and fear of the self by Ashis Nandy( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The destruction of the Babri Masjid at Ayodhya in December 1992 was a watershed in the politics of independent India. It was also an apocalyptic turning-point for community life at Ayodhya, and for the highly interdependent cultural lives of Hindus and Muslims living there. This book narrates how Ayodhya's inhabitants experienced the events that led up to and followed the destruction of the mosque."--Publisher's description
