Marginality, Exclusion and Social Justice

Edited by: Ashish Saxena

Contributions by: T.K. Oommen

This book is a critique, as well as a systematic documentation of the experiences and debates, of the contested marginality across South Asia in general, and Indian society in particular, across the time-space continuum. It reflects the dialectics of social justice and multiple forms of marginalization. It also sets forth how marginality is contemporarily experienced across a variety of communities and groups, such as scheduled castes, scheduled tribes, peasants, women, the physically challenged, minorities, and the culturally deprived, as well as how they cumulate across the life course. Following an interdisciplinary approach, the book examines the lived experiences and narratives of enduring marginality and injustice. Besides providing insights into the contours of marginality embedded across contemporary South Asia, the book also provokes an engaging overview of advocacy for coherent justice. It will be appealing and appropriate to academicians, practitioners, and scholars interested in post-colonial and subaltern studies, inclusive policies and growth, social justice, and social exclusion in the South Asian perspective.
