Description

The volume addresses the complex relationship between development, identity and violence from different dimensions. It explores the idea of development beyond its appearances and delves deeper into its essence. India has been a site of tumultuous changes in recent times as a consequence of its shift towards neoliberalism.

This shift has not only introduced a new framework of development but has also produced its side effects. Chapters in this volume make an effort to critically engage with these issues trying to reconfigure the ongoing debates on development.
