Confluence of thought : Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. by Bidyut Chakrabarty( Book )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The literature on Gandhi and Martin Luther King is vast, and scholars often speak of the two leaders when discussing theories of non-violence. Yet, no attempt has yet been made to understand the way in which Gandhi and King's socio-political ideas converge in terms of their origins, development and application. In Confluence of Thought, Bidyut Chakrabarty argues that there is a confluence of thought between Gandhi and King's concerns for humanity and advocacy of non-violence, despite their different historical and socio-economic contexts. He says that these two figures are perhaps the best modern historical examples of individuals who combined religion with the political to produce a dynamic social ideology. Gandhi saw service to humanity as the path to 'self-actualization' and thus spiritually most fulfilling; similarly, King pursued religion-driven social action. Chakrabarty looks particularly at the way in which each deployed religious and political language to draw the widest possible membership to their social movements. While Chakrabarty points out that neither thinker was able to fulfill his chosen mission, both suffering death by assassination, he positions the two as the premier modern influences on theories of non-violence today"--
Indian politics and society since independence : events, processes and ideology by Bidyut Chakrabarty( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on politics and society in India. It explores new areas enmeshed in the complex social, economic and political processes in the country. Linking structural characteristics with broader sociological context, the book emphasizes the strong influence of sociological issues on politics, such as the shaping of the social milieu and the articulation of the political in day-to-day events. Political events are connected with the ever-changing social, economic and political processes in order to provide an analytical framework to explain 'peculiarities' of Indian politics."--Jacket

"Social and Political Thought of Mahatma Gandhi focuses on the principles of satyagraha and non-violence, and their evolution in the context of anti-imperial movements organized by Gandhi, looking at how these precepts underwent changes reflecting the ideological beliefs of the participants.

Concentrating on Gandhi's writings in Harijan, the weekly newspaper of the Servants of Untouchable Society, this volume offers a unique contextualized study of Gandhi's social and political thought."--Jacket
Forging power : coalition politics in India by Bidyut Chakrabarty( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is a history of the growth and evolution of coalition governments in India both at the national and provincial levels. The phenomenon of political parties of diverse ideologies and affirmations coming together to share power has been highlighted as a prominent feature of Indian politics in the last few decades." "The study argues that contrary to popular explanations, coalitions have always been an inevitable necessity of Indian politics. Even in the era of apparent one-party dominance, not only was the Congress party a social as well as an ideological coalition, even the cabinet government in the initial post-independence years was constituted on coalition principles. It claims that rather than being seen as inherently unstable formations, coalitions may be the need in a socio-culturally diverse country like India, strengthening the democratic impulse, representing otherwise marginalized groups."--BOOK JACKET

The partition of Bengal and Assam, 1932-1947 : contour of freedom by Bidyut Chakrabarty( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fragmentation of Bengal and Assam in 1947 was a crucial moment in India's socio-political history as a nation state. Both British Indian provinces were divided as much through the actions of the Muslim League as through those of Congress and the British colonial power. Attributing partition largely to Hindu communalists is, therefore, historically inaccurate and factually misleading." "The Partition of Bengal and Assam, 1932-1947 provides a review of constitutional and party politics as well as of popular attitudes and perceptions. The primary aim of this book is to unravel the intricate socio-economic and political processes that led up to partition, as Hindus and Muslims competed ferociously for the new power and privileges to be conferred on them with independence. As shown in the book, well before they divorced at a political level, Hindus and Muslims had been cleft apart by their socio-economic differences. Partition was probably inevitable."--Jacket

The governance discourse : a reader( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume aims to understand the concept of governance in its most complex manifestation and to identify its theoretical roots in the 'neo-liberal' mode of thinking cutting across different sub-disciplines in social sciences. It fills gaps in the available literature that tend to reduce governance to just another mode of public administration undermining the ideological challenges in the era of globalization. The volume has two interconnected parts: the first deals with the conceptual articulation of governance while the second is devoted to study the phenomenon empirically. The essays together with the introduction provide a critical analysis of the governance paradigm, which is concerned not only with the reform in public administration but also identifies new areas of research of a multi-disciplinary nature. By drawing attention to the changes in the theoretical domain of public administration-the study is both a comprehensive review of the available literature and also a quest for 'new' directions in the discipline

Left radicalism in India by Bidyut Chakrabarty( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Left radicalism in India was rooted in the nationalist movement and was set in motion in the 1920s with the formation of the communist party. The communist movement manifested itself differently in each phase of India's political history and Communism continues to remain a meaningful alternative ideological discourse in India. This book examines left politics in India focusing on its rise, consolidation and relative decline in the present century. Left radicalism in India is a distinct ideological phenomenon which is articulated in two complementary ways: while the parliamentary left remains social democratic in character, its bête noire, the left wing extremists, continue to uphold the classical Marxist, Leninist and Maoist notion of violent revolution. By concentrating on the nature and also activities of these two versions of left radicalism, this book is a thorough study of the phenomenon. The author analyses the states of Kerala, West Bengal and Tripura and presents a variety of case studies of communist movements. He argues that the political power of the left parties depends on the degree to which they have built organizational strength, political hegemony and a broad social base through legal and extra-parliamentary struggles. An in-depth study of socio-economic circumstances that remain critical in conceptualizing radical extremism, Left Radicalism in India will be of interest to those studying Indian Politics, South Asian History, Development Studies and Global Politics"--
