Nation, civil society and social movements essays in political sociology by T. K Oommen( )
12 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 933 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 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The endeavour to internationalise the social sciences has a long history. Some have advanced this cause as a genuine effort to foster a dispassionate understanding of human society without 'national' frontiers; others have perceived it as a way of establishing the ideological hegemony of either capitalism or socialism. In the latter confrontational framework, social scientists of the so-called 'Third World' are dismissed as mere pawns who are incapable of shaking off the vice-like grip of intellectual colonialism

Crisis and contention in Indian society by T. K Oommen( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 173 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
