On India

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1400609&cjsku=1400609...
On India: Self-image and Counter-image looks at the philosophical and religious as well as the sociopolitical forces that are at work in the Indian cultural soil shaping multiple aspects of the lives of millions. The principal focus is on some images construed both by insiders and outsiders reflecting various aspects that are relevant for comprehending India. The essays address two major concerns: one is about how cross-cultural conversation on India should proceed today, noting some of the primary issues and concerns; the other is with regard to whether India has a core cultural image identifiable among the range of competing images, and if so, how to conceptualize its counter-image. The contributors discuss whether it is possible to arrive at a consensus about the persistent features of the Indian civilization without losing out on the defining characteristic of changing values and norms. The wide canvas of depictions and conceptualizations throw light on the aspirations and ground realities of the geopolitically bounded space called India.

Digital India

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1013471&cjsku=1013471...
India’s tryst with the digital is an extensive project and while much media attention is given to flagship digital initiatives linked to informational capitalism, the story is also one of marginalized people appropriating digital leaks and re-creating the digital economy in their image. The story of the digital in India is also about the ambivalent role played by the State in the shaping of India’s digital futures via enclosures and openness. It is this battle between enclosing the digital and extending access to it that makes the story of the digital in India an exciting one. Digital India is a case study–based critical introduction to the theory and practice of the digital in social change. The volume with its chapters on telecommunications, software, mobile telephony, e-governance, ICT4D, software patenting, public sector software and cultural piracy offers an entry point into an understanding of the contested nature of the digital in India via an analysis of theory and practice.

Working at the interface of historical and fictional writing, Ralph Crane considers the history of India from the Revolt of 1857 to the Emergency of 1975 as it is presented in the works of twentieth-century novelists, both Indian and British, who have written about particular periods of Indian history from within various periods of literary history. A constant thread in the book is the exploration of the use of paintings as iconography and allegory, used in the novels to reveal aspects of British-Indian relationships.
