Contemporary Relevance of Ambedkar's Thoughts

Edited by: Avatthi Ramaiah

Contemporary Relevance of Ambedkar's Thoughts attempts a fresh look at the various challenges confronting India today from the point of view of B.R. Ambedkar (1891-1956). Ambedkar was an Indian jurist, economist, politican, and social reformer. This book brings together the critical reflections of his critiques and admirers on his philosophical and ideological roots, his conception of new social order, just society and democracy, his idea of history writing, women's emancipation, separate settlements, and nationalism. It also throws light on the constitutional rights of the Dalit and Adivasi communities in the context of increasing privatization and globalization, and on the growing leadership crisis among these communities in changing economic and political contexts.
