The Globalization Turbulence

Emerging Tensions in Indian Society

Edited by: Prashant Kumar Trivedi

This book brings together the writings of prominent Indian academics presenting an overview of changes experienced by Indian society in the last two decades. It also presents a critique of the ongoing liberalization process in India and its interface with societal arrangements. The book examines the globalization process by discussing it at different levels - social, economic, and cultural. It engages these issues by looking at them through different prisms and from different vantage points, deepening the understanding of issues such as: the nature of structural transformations in caste, class, and gender structure * social movements in the age of a market economy * the interaction of a liberalized economy with culture and religion * the relationship of developmental politics and social change * growing inequalities and poverty * transformation of the labor market.
