November 2016 | 412 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd

A comprehensive analysis of the dynamics of social economy in a traditionally fragmented Indian society

Drawing from the works of several eminent economists, this book elaborates on an alternative paradigm of development in the global context. It advocates reforms in social indicators and also bureaucracy, politics, business and contractor groups to enable their empowerment.

Further, the book interrogates liberal economic policies and their consequences in various fields such as inequalities in human development, social tensions, marginalisation of agriculture, language and culture in the Indian caste-based society.

Comprehensive in analysis, it looks at political processes in India through the oligarchy of castes and examines the structure of inequality that still persists.
