Minority Studies (Oxford India Studies in Contemporary Society)

Minority Studies (Oxford India Studies in Contemporary Society)

In India, The ‘minority–majority’ logic has been inherited from the independence struggle and Partition history, and ratified by provisions in favour of minorities in the Constitution. Minority studies, the first volume in the series, ‘Oxford India studies in Contemporary society’, looks at issues related to the identification, definition, and categorization of religious minorities and foreboding of the significant social categories of caste, gender, ethnicity, and class. Drawing from fieldwork based on historically grounded and ethnographically researched locations, it examines how modern law creates and conditions minority identity, how groups manipulate the ground-level situation to project a certain identity at a particular point of time, and what happens when a group considered as part of the ‘majority’ demands ‘minority’ status. In this paperback edition, the editor adds further to the discussion by referring to the recent resurgence of majoritarian populist politics in India as evidenced in the lynching and targeted violence against Muslims and Dalits in the name of cow vigilantism and other such instances. The editor emphasizes how the minority question becomes even more potent in the current socio-political milieu.

Heaven's Gates and Hell's Flames: A Sociological Study of New Christian Movements in Contemporary Goa

Heaven's Gates and Hell's Flames: A Sociological Study of New Christian Movements in Contemporary Goa

Pentecostal-charismatic Christianity is one of the largest religious movements in the world today. It is a recent form of Christianity that emphasise direct personal experience of God through Baptism with the holy spirit. While the literature on pentecostalism is constantly rising, they mostly focus on Western societies and are from a theological perspective. There is a dearth of well-researched studies that critically analyse the phenomenon of pentecostal–charismatic Christianity in India. Addressing this gap, heaven’s Gates and hell’s flames focuses on groups at the periphery of the religious space in Goa, while locating them within Christianity globally. It broadens our understanding of pentecostal–charismatic Christianity in Goa as a rapidly expanding and overtly evangelist movement within a pluralist, non-Christian society. Abreu assesses the impact of religion on society, analysing how the symbols, beliefs, rituals, and organizational structure of the neo-pentecostal sects and the Catholic charismatic renewal influence religious identities, world views, and the everyday life activities of individual adherents. This the author does by drawing on extensive fieldwork, concepts, analyses, and interpretations provided by scholars of religion in sociology, anthropology, history, as well as theology.

Krishna's Playground

Krishna's Playground

This is a book about a deeply beloved place—many call it the spiritual capital of India. Located at a dramatic bend in the river Yamuna, a hundred miles from the center of Delhi, Vrindavan is the spot where the God Krishna is believed to have spent his childhood and youth. For Hindus it has always stood for youth writ large—a realm of love and beauty that enables one to retreat from the weight and harshness of the world. Now, though, the world is gobbling up Vrindavan. Delhi’s megalopolitan sprawl inches closer day by day—half the town is a vast real-estate developments the waters of the Yamuna are too polluted to drink or even bathe in. Temples now style themselves as Theme parks and the world’s tallest religious building is under construction in Krishna’s pastoral paradise. What happens when the Anthropocene age makes everything virtual? What happens when heaven gets plowed under? Like our age as a whole, Vrindavan throbs with feisty energy, but is it the religious canary in our collective coal mine?.

Does India Negotiate?

Does India Negotiate?

India plays a key role in addressing multilateral issues like climate change, terrorism, piracy, humanitarian crises, and Nuclear Disarmament. Scholarly work mapping India’s multilateral behaviour ranges from covering the United Nations to a wide range of fora where India seeks to influence issues that affect its security and development. Yet, there has been no serious exploration of how India concretely negotiates international rules. In this book, karthik nachiappan investigates how India negotiated four key multilateral agreements: the framework Convention on tobacco control, the framework Convention on climate change, the comprehensive Test ban treaty, and the uruguay round trade agreement. Based on untapped primary sources including archival documents detailing how negotiations transpired, official records of the LoC Sabha and Rajya Sabha, a series of interviews with former Indian negotiators, and newspaper sources, does India negotiate. Demonstrates that India’s multilateral behaviour is fundamentally strategic—working to shape and ratify international rules that advance core interests while resisting rules that harm those interests.

Surrogacy (Oxford India Short Introductions Series)

Surrogacy (Oxford India Short Introductions Series)

Although estimated as a multi-billion dollar industry, surrogacy has still not found prominence in legislation in India, neither does it feature in the nation public discourse. This short introduction explores how surrogacy is practical and understood in India and across the world. Why is a surrogate hired? Why does a woman carry a child for an infertile couple? Why is there a need to delve deeper into the motivations for and notions attached with entering a surrogacy arrangement for all involved? This book focuses on the relationship between surrogacy and issues of reproduction, kinship, women’s bodies, assisted reproductive technologies and transnational reproductive tourism. At the same time it places surrogacy in the context of mythology, popular imagination and legal and public discourses. In exploring the differences between various forms of surrogacy—commercial and altruistic, genetic and gestational, domestic and transnational—the book seeks to move beyond these opposing dualities and begin a dialogue regarding the practice.

Bioinorganic Chemistry

Bioinorganic Chemistry

Bioinorganic chemistry lies at the interface of inorganic chemistry and biochemistry, and explores the function of inorganic species in living systems - from the iron that helps our red blood cells transport oxygen to our tissues, to the calcium that forms an integral part of our bones.

In his book, Rehder provides a broad overview of this dynamic field, reviewing the key chemical elements that have important biological function, and exploring how the chemistry of these elements is central to the function of biological systems.

With sidebars that both review underlying principles of importance to the subject - including the concepts of magnetism and chirality - and discuss some of the analytical approaches that have enabled us to elucidate the biological role of the chemical elements, Bioinorganic Chemistry is the ideal resource for those discovering the field for the first time, and who need a clear, balanced account of the subject.

A Concise Handbook of the Indian Economy in the 21st Century

A Concise Handbook of the Indian Economy in the 21st Century

After a Phase of slow growth post independence, the Indian economy has experienced significant changes since the mid-1980s as a result of major reforms. India’s growth story has defied established economic patterns and, in the process, created interesting paradoxes that have attracted global attention. In this new edition of a concise handbook of the Indian economy in the 21st century, select chapters from the original have been updated to present a brief but comprehensive overview of the Indian economy, contributing to a finer understanding of India’s economic development. The volume adopts a non-ideological and forward-looking approach to discuss important economic issues. It takes into account various social and political factors impacting the Indian economy, and compares the importance of external market factors with that of domestic reforms in India’s economic growth. The book aims to provide a deep understanding of the economy based on careful fact-based research, which is a pre-requisite for formulating pragmatic reforms necessary to achieve sustained and inclusive growth.

India in a Warming World: Integrating Climate Change and Development

India in a Warming World: Integrating Climate Change and Development

Riven with scientific uncertainty, contending interests, and competing interpretations, the problem of climate change poses an existential challenge. For India, such a challenge is compounded by the immediate concerns of eradicating poverty and accelerating development. Moreover, India has played a relatively limited role thus far in causing the problem. Despite these complicating factors, India has to engage this challenge because a pathway to development innocent of climate change is no longer possible. The volume seeks to encourage public debate on climate change as part of India’s larger development discourse. This volume brings together leading researchers and practitioners—negotiators, activists, and policymaking lay out the emergent debate on climate change in India. Through these chapters, The contributors hope to deepen clarity both on why India should engage with climate change and how it can best do so, even while appreciating and representing the challenges inherent in doing so.
