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.

Post-Mandal Politics in Bihar presents a detailed account of Bihar’s electoral politics from the 1990s right up to the recent breakup of the RJD–JD(U)–Congress Grand Alliance.

Additionally, it covers governance, leadership, and development, which are crucial factors in ensuring growth and prosperity of this state. This is the first book in the SAGE Series on Politics in Indian States, which comprises volumes covering important trends in the politics of major states of 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.

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.

„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.

Arundhati Roy, die Autorin des Weltbestsellers »Der Gott der kleinen Dinge«, kehrt zurück! Ihr lange herbeigesehnter Roman »Das Ministerium des äußersten Glücks« führt uns an den unwahrscheinlichsten Ort, um das Glück zu finden. Eine Reihe ausgestoßener Helden ist hier mit ihrem Schicksal konfrontiert, aber sie finden eine Gemeinschaft, sie bilden eine Familie der besonderen Art. Auf einem Friedhof in der Altstadt von Delhi wird ein handgeknüpfter Teppich ausgerollt. Auf einem Bürgersteig taucht unverhofft ein Baby auf. In einem verschneiten Tal schreibt ein Vater einen Brief an seine dreijährige Tochter über die vielen Menschen, die zu ihrer Beerdigung kamen. In einem Zimmer im ersten Stock liest eine einsame Frau die Notizbücher ihres Geliebten. Im Jannat Guest House umarmen sich im Schlaf fest zwei Menschen, als hätten sie sich eben erst getroffen – dabei kennen sie einander schon ein Leben lang. Voller Inspiration, Gefühl und Überraschungen beweist der Roman auf jeder Seite Arundhati Roys Kunst. Erzählt mit einem Flüstern, einem Schrei, mit Freudentränen und manchmal mit einem bitteren Lachen ist dieser Roman zugleich Liebeserklärung wie Provokation: eine Hymne auf das Leben.
