Cambridge Studies in Cultural Systems - The Untouchable as Himself: Ideology, Identity and Pragmatism among the Lucknow Chamars... Cambridge Studies in Cultural Systems - The Untouchable as Himself: Ideology, Identity and Pragmatism among the Lucknow Chamars (Paperback)

R739 Discovery Miles 7 390 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The world of the Indian Untouchable is often invisible behind that of the dominant Hindu caste, but it is of no less significance for the understanding of contemporary Indian society. The Untouchables, like the caste Hindu, have been substantially affected by the political, economic and social changes that are occurring in independent India. While India has legally abolished untouchability, the society scarcely has and the Untouchables continue to face social resistance and deprivation. However, the changing social circumstances have given rise to a new awareness and increased expectations among the Untouchables and, although their social achievements may have been limited, they are engaged in a process of questioning and reformulating old definitions of self and society. This book is a study of the new frame of mind of the Untouchable. The work presents a complete discussion of the value structure and meaning of Untouchable ideology. It is a subtle combination of sensitive ethnographic data, taken from a field study of the Chamars of Lucknow, with an analysis of Untouchable accounts of their perceptions and experiences expressed in their own terms and a penetrating interpretation of wider cultural concepts.

This volume throws the spotlight on India by examining Indo-American relations since India's independence some 35 years ago. The relationship has been marked both by warmth and mutual trust and by political conflict and disputes. Some of the reasons are geo-political, but others rest on cultural differences. The goal of this volume is to pursue a cultural understanding between the two democracies.
