Alien concepts and South Asian reality : responses and reformulations by T. K Oommen( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 187 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 )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Marathi and held by 149 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
