Description

The essays in this volume will set the tone for the development of a healthy tradition among social scientists of questioning orthodox perceptions based on reasoned and well-researched debate and will serve to stimulate debate on the current economic and social issues of South Asia, particularly Pakistan.

The book consist of sixteen chapters related to the themes which have been the central focus of well-known social scientist, Professor Hamza Alavi’s work on social and economic issues in post-colonial South Asia. These include, in the context of his analysis of post-colonial societies, the role of the state, conflict and coalition among economic and social groups, the character of economic reforms, the role of religion and the status of women. Although some of the essays are of an abstract nature, most concentrate on contemporary problems facing South Asia, particularly Pakistan.

The book contains contributions by academics, researchers and social activists from such varied disciplines as philosophy, literature, religious studies, history, sociology, anthropology and economics.
