Dalit Paradigm

Concept and Theory Building

By Priti Nath Saxena

The book vividly captures dalan (oppression) at a trans-caste level faced by people globally. The idea in presenting this Dalit Paradigm is to understand the word Dalit in a holistic manner rather than confining it to only caste. The interplay between domination and oppression is presented through critical and objective analyses from national and international news. A New Social Theory (NST) has been derived, based on both hypothetical and empirical analyses. A trans-caste philosophy based on intertextuality has been introduced by relating the term Dalit to texts from Plato to contemporary political theorists. The history of political elevation of Dalits and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) is comprehensively essayed and laced with footnotes. The trans-caste concept is universal in scope. The text brings to light, for the first time, the Neo-Caste Realist Theory, Neo-Liberal Caste Approach, Degree of Dalan and Eclipse Theory along with their application in current politics. With an interdiscplinary touch, this book will be of interest to academics, research scholars, analysts, journalists, and leaders of political parties. This trans-caste paradigm will trigger a new debate in the coming years for the betterment of society in the world. [Subject: India Studies, Politics, Minority Studies, Cultural Studies, Sociology]
