Social movements in India : poverty, power, and politics ( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 228 libraries worldwide
"Social movements have played a vital role in Indian politics since well before the inception of India as a new nation in 1947. During the Nehruvian era, poverty alleviation was a foundational standard against which policy proposals and political claims were measured; at this time, movement activism was directly accountable to this state discourse. In the first volume to focus on poverty and class in its analysis of social movements, a group of leading India scholars shows how social movements have had to change because poverty reduction no longer serves its earlier role as a political template. With distinctive chapters on gender, lower castes, environment, the Hindu Right, Kerala, labor, farmers, and biotechnology, Social Movements in India will be attractive to students and researchers in many different disciplines."--BOOK JACKET.

Venus and Mars ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"Are men and women really that different? Society tends to emphasize differences more than similarities. This often leads to competition, and in some cases, inequality. Gender issues and stratification, the gender divide in the workplace, the impact of Title Seven, and the women's movement are explored in this lesson. As illustrated in the example of a female football team, it can take a lot of determination to defy the agents of socialization and overcome gender basis."
