India: Political Ideas and the Making of a Democratic Discourse

by Gurpreet Mahajan - £19.99  Zed Books Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780320922 | ISBN 10: 1780320922

In this groundbreaking work, Gurpreet Mahajan tackles the predisposition of political theory to be limited by the Western canon. Bringing into focus how concepts central to the modern democratic political imaginary are interpreted in India, this book elaborates the ways that ideas of freedom, equality and difference are layered with new meanings and how questions of religion and state, critical reason and embedded self are understood in the Indian context.
 
Part of Zedís World Political Theories series, this remarkable work offers a glimpse of the social and political life of contemporary India, and how it differs from the dominant liberal paradigm.
