   Abstract = {© 2009 Editorial selection and matter, Sucheta Mazumdar,
             Vasant Kaiwar and Thierry Labica. All rights reserved. This
             book uses a historical and theoretical focus to examine the
             key of issues of the Enlightenment, Orientalism, concepts of
             identity and difference, and the contours of different
             modernities in relation to both local and global shaping
             forces, including the spread of capitalism. The contributors
             present eight in-depth studies and a substantial theoretical
             introduction, utilizing primary and secondary sources in
             Turkish, Farsi, Chinese, not to mention English, French and
             German in the effort to engage materials and cultural
             perspectives from diverse regions. It provides a critical
             attempt to think through the potentialities and limitations
             of area-studies and 'civilizational' approaches to the
             production of knowledge about the modern world, and the
             often obscured relationship between the fragment and the
             whole, or the particular and universal. The book is an
             intervention in one of the most fundamental debates
             confronting the social science and humanities, namely how to
             understand global and local historical processes as
             interconnected developments affecting human actors. From
             Orientalism to Postcolonialism will be of interest to
             academics and postgraduate students in Cultural and
             Postcolonial Studies and Asian studies and Middle Eastern
             studies.},

   Author = {Kaiwar, V},
   Title = {Philosophy and Politics in the Hind Swaraj of Mohandas
             Gandhi},
   Journal = {Journal of South Asian and Middle Eastern
             Studies},
   Pages = {50-69},
   Year = {2013},
   Month = {Fall},
   Abstract = {Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948), the Mahatma as he
             has come to be known to generations of people worldwide, is
             widely acclaimed as the apostle of non-violent resistance to
             injustice. More narrowly, he is known as the architect of
             Indian independence from British colonial rule. Both
             statements are true but overly simple. Gandhi’s views on
             violence were more nuanced—as befits someone who saw the
             Bhagvad Gita as a major source of inspiration. His role in
             the independence movement has been studied ad nauseam and is
             beyond question but this paper suggests that it should be
             seen as part of a complex of forces that ultimately brought
             the Raj to a closure. However, the singular focus on
             Gandhian non-violence—particularly in the West—has been
             accompanied by a curious ignorance about Gandhi’s more
             significant ideas about social transformation, first
             developed in the Hind Swaraj, composed in 1909, and
             developed over time—ideas based on an uncompromising
             critique of modernity. Gandhi was interested in Indian
             independence more as a necessary first step to a greater
             transformation of India in which the entire society would be
             changed from the ground up. He has been ridiculed in India
             (and presumably elsewhere) by those who, like Nehru and
             Ambedkar, believed that village India was a den of
             backwardness and iniquity. Gandhi experienced village India
             first hand, more so than most of his critics ever did, and
             understood the limits of the villages of his day, both
             socially and economically. But, he believed that the village
             was still the basic building block of Indian society and
             would remain so for the foreseeable future. Rather than
             endure its existence as a necessary evil to be overcome
             Gandhi believed that it should be transformed and linked
             upwards to the centres of governance and thus play a part in
             the overall life of the country. People who now witness the
             second modern tragedy of the countryside under
             globalisation—the first being British colonial rule—will
             perhaps acknowledge Gandhi’s wisdom and farsightedness.
             This paper suggests that Gandhi’s ideas in this regard
             should receive equal, if not greater, exposure as his better
             known ideas on non-violence.},

   Abstract = {One of the central characteristics of postcolonial theory is
             the contention that colonialism—defined not so much as the
             history of the physical occupation and rule by European
             states of vast regions of the world beyond Europe but more
             so the attempted erasure or submergence of a whole host of
             life-worlds and ‘unbroken traditions’ that flourished in
             those regions until the arrival of modern Europe—is the
             defining experience of humanity in our epoch. Central to
             this theory is contention that traditions kept alive through
             generations have, by now, either been reduced to
             ‘history’ or simply assumed submerged forms in the
             consciousness and ‘world’ of the subalterns.
             Colonialism, with pre- and post-fixes, becomes the
             foundation of history, the category around which a virtual
             rather than historical periodisation is constructed; the
             postcolonial in some readings is said to originate in the
             first act of resistance to colonialism. However, since
             colonialism is defined as the usurpation of others’
             life-worlds, there is no intrinsic reason why European
             colonization or the Enlightenment should be privileged. This
             privileging, one might assume, is purely strategic, related
             to where the postcolonial theorists are from and where they
             find themselves.},

             agriculture as a field for improvement and suggests that the
             neglect of this literature by latter-day economic historians
             has led to either Promethean or Malthusian discourses of
             limited explanatory value. This article notes that combining
             the insights of this earlier discourse with recent attempts
             at theorising the links between nature, property and polity
             constitutes the most promising line of development.},

             "The article explores the manner in which peasant possession
             of land and other means of subsistence limited productive
             utilisation of capital and technology, triggered a certain
             demographic regime and, in turn, disrupted further
             developmental possibilities." The geographical focus is on
             the area coinciding with the modern states of Maharashtra
             and Gujarat.},
