This book studies the engagement of various Muslim communities with Bihar politics from colonial times to present-day India. It debunks several myths in highlighting Muslim resistance to the Two-Nation theory, and counters the ‘Isolation Syndrome’ faced by Muslim communities after Independence. Using rare archival sources and hitherto unexamined Urdu texts, this book offers a nuanced exploration of complex themes such as the struggle against Bengali hegemony, communalism, regionalism and alienation before Independence, recent language politics, the political assertion of low-caste Muslims in current Bihar, as well as their quest for social and gender justice. An important contribution to the study of South Asian Islam, this book will interest students and scholars of modern Indian history, politics, sociology, religion, gender, and minority studies.

Muslim Political Discourse in Postcolonial India

The book examines the postcolonial Muslim political discourse through monuments. It establishes a link between the process by which historic buildings become monuments and the gradual transformation of these historic/legal entities into political objects. The author studies the multiple interpretations of Indo-Islamic historical buildings as ‘political sites’ as well as emerging Muslim religiosities and the internal configurations of Muslim politics in India. He also looks at the modes by which a memory of a royal Muslim past is articulated for political mobilisation. Raising critical questions such as whether Muslim responses to political questions are homogenous, the book will greatly interest researchers and students of political science, modern Indian history, sociology, as well as the general reader interested in contemporary India.

„Die Frage, wer die Welt regiert, kann nicht eindeutig beantwortet werden. Aber die einflussreichsten Akteure sind klar auszumachen.“ Auch nach der Ära Obama gilt: Die USA betrachten sich grundsätzlich als die Guten – selbst dann, wenn sie das Gleiche tun wie jene, denen sie Böses unterstellen: Zivilflugzeuge abschießen, willkürlich Leute inhaftieren und mit Drohnen umbringen oder in fremde Länder einmarschieren. Das Primat der militärischen Intervention und der unerbittliche Drang, alleinige Weltmacht zu bleiben, bilden die Konstanten der amerikanischen Politik – auch wenn dadurch Staaten ins Chaos und Menschen ins Verderben getrieben werden. Im Land dagegen haben die Reichen und Mächtigen fast freie Hand, jenseits demokratischer Kontrollen und unbeachtet von einer zunehmend gleichgültigen Bevölkerung. Wohin führt uns das? Welche Folgen hat das für den Rest der Welt? In seiner so brillanten wie präzisen Analyse zeigt Noam Chomsky die fatalen Folgen der imperialen Politik der USA für das ohnehin immer chaotischere Zusammenleben auf unserem Planeten.

This study presents 13 articles interrogating themes likely to impinge on India’s 15th general elections in 2009. These were written following intense discussion between the contributors and use available data as well as original data and analysis. The significance of the analyses goes beyond how much these questions find place in the campaign, or how much they would impact the electoral results. These have and would continue to be essential themes in Indian politics for some time. They would influence the country’s politics, its leaders, parties and institutions and would be interrogated in political, policy and social science circles in the foreseeable future. They would in turn be impacted, redefined and perhaps transformed by political dynamics and social pressure. The first attempt of its kind to analyse the impact of certain emerging trends in politics on upcoming elections anywhere in the world, this book will be a useful addition to election studies and policy making in general.

Das "Lexikon Linker Leitfiguren" schließt den Artikel über Bertrand Russell mit der Feststellung: "Die Linke in der Bundesrepublik hat es sich wohl zu leicht mit ihm gemacht: Als Mitstreiter gegen den Rüstungswettlauf und die atomare Bedrohung, als Ankläger gegen die amerikanische Kriegsführung in Vietnam und als Vordenker antiautoritärer Erziehung war er in ihren Reihen willkommen. Sein philosophisches Werk und der Geist seiner Kritik blieben aber aus dem theoretischen Diskurs der Linken ausgeschlossen ... Er sollte für die Linke eine Provokation bleiben: als radikaler Aufklärer."In "Unpopuläre Betrachtungen" stellte Russell 1950 Essays zusammen, die "gegen den zunehmenden Dogmatismus der Rechten wie der Linken, der unserem tragischen Jahrhundert bisher seinen Stempel aufgedrückt hat, ankämpfen". Sie zeigen ihn als eben jenen radikalen Aufklärer; denn "wirkliche Philosophie handelt von Dingen, die für jeden Gebildeten von Interesse sind", unter anderem: Philosophie und Politik, Philosophie für Laien, Der Weg zum Weltstaat, Die tieferen Beweggründe der Philosophie, Die Aufgaben des Lehrers, Ideen, die der Menschheit genützt haben, Ideen, die der Menschheit geschadet haben. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
