Nation, civil society and social movements essays in political sociology by T. K Oommen ( )
12 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Among the issues being extensively debated throughout the world today are the relevance of the nation-state, the role of civil society in good governance, and the relationship between social movements and social policy. Professor Oommen analyses these issues and simultaneously contests several of the prevailing conceptualisations, both Indian and Western, while invoking South Asian/Indian empirical reality to interrogate, modify and reformulate western theory. Following an over-arching Introduction, the three interrelated themes are discussed in separate sections, each containing four chapters

Alien concepts and South Asian reality : responses and reformulations by T. K Oommen ( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this thought-provoking book, Professor Oommen challenges such facile formulations and demonstrates that Indian social science is not a mere captive of Western or Marxian theories and concepts. The essays in the first part present a response to five important Western/Marxian theories and concepts: the old concept of dichotomy and the new one of continuum; Weber's notion of charismatic leaders; political pluralism; voluntary associations; and the nature of students' movements in the context of revolution. In the second part, Professor Oommen reformulates some of the theories and concepts. Among the phenomena he evaluates are the nature of the political mobilization of the agrarian classes; the juxtaposition of movements and institutions; the theory of alienation; the relationship between Hinduism and economic development; and the concepts of state, nation and ethnie. Both the responses and reformulations are based on empirical evidence from Asia

Crisis and contention in Indian society by T. K Oommen ( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Indian society is often described as one with 'unity in diversity' and as a composite culture. Since independence, India has also been termed 'democratic' and 'secular'. However, the discernible cracks that have appeared in recent years in these conceptualisations have led to contentious debates about the very nature of Indian society. Focusing on different facets of this exacerbating crisis, this book analyses the various issues confronting India's society and polity today which can assume crisis proportions if not tackled judiciously and expeditiously
