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

51 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in English and held by 706 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

Talking India by Ashis Nandy( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Multifaceted thinker and prolific author, Ashis Nandy is considered to be one of India's leading intellectuals. For someone trained as a clinical psychologist and later as a sociologist, he continues to capture the imagination of the reading public and those interested in ideas, for his fertile mind, myriad and unpredictable ways of thinking and the essential humanism which all his writings signify. This book is a series of comprehensive interviews conducted by Ramin Jahanbegloo at Teheran and organized over six sessions. The interviewer questions Nandy within the context of his own 'Indian-ness' as also his affinity (and criticisms) for things Indian: whether it be thought, religion or pluralistic tendencies. The essence of Ashis Nandy and his perspectives on a wide range of things include political philosophy, democracy, India and Pakistan, globalization, Indian culture and tradition, and Gandhi, are all revealed. Throughout the interview, Nandy brings to bear his formidable intellect on these questions, which is always challenging and engaging."--Jacket
