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 )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Marathi and held by 153 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

Classes, citizenship, and inequality : emerging perspectives by T. K Oommen( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the social sciences, the conventional unit of analyses of inequality has been the structures and processes within nation-states. With the onset of the current phase of globalization in the post-Cold War period, the tripartite division of the world into First, Second and Third has become obsolete and the notion of 'one world' has gained wide currency. However, the specificities of local and national social reality don't disappear under the emerging common layer of global social reality. This book is an attempt to demonstrate this proposition. Rejecting the obsolete methodology of comparisons between categories, the essays in this volume analyse both general and specific features of the phenomenon of inequality by looking at comparisons within as well. This is facilitated by the fact that the eight authors are equally drawn from two different social contexts: a 'developed' European country (Germany) and a 'developing' South Asian country (India). The vast scope of this study includes factors such as historicity, culture, social structure, level of economic development and the nature of the political regime. This rich inquiry into the very notion of inequality vis-à-vis globalization will be of great interest to students, scholars of social science, policymakers and the general reader alike
