Democrats and Dissenters by Ramachandra Guha

Product Description

Book Name:- Democrats and Dissenters

Author Name:- Ramachandra Guha

Democrats and Dissenters is a work of rigorous scholarship on topics of compelling contemporary interest, written with charm and smartness.

The book Democrats and Dissenters includes a wide range of themes: from the responsibilities of writers to the complex relationship between democracy and violence, from the varying national projects of India’s neighbors to political dispute within India itself. It has essays critically assessing the work of Eric Hobsbawm and Amartya Sen, essays on the tragic predicament of tribals in India—who are, as Ramachandra demonstrates, far worse off than Muslims or Dalits, yet get a fraction of the attention—and on the peculiar absence of a tradition of conservative intellectuals in India.

Each essay takes up an influential intellectual or an important topic, as a window to explore major political and cultural debates in India and the world. Democrats and Dissenters is a book that is certain to be widely read and even more widely discussed.
