Great Transition in India : Critical Explorations
India is undergoing a great transition, as the post-reform generation strikes out into the world. The thinking, political preferences, and consumption patterns of the post-reform generation differ greatly from that of the earlier generation. As a consequence, the country is also witnessing rapid changes not only on the socio-political and economic fronts but also on the humanities front. This book seeks to explore great transition in India through interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences. In doing so, it lays foundation not only for understanding India but also in initiating a new chapter for Indian and South Asian studies. With contributions by leading scholars, the book will be of great interest to students, researchers, and for anyone wishing to explore India in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences.
