Among the issues being extensively debated throughout the world today are the relevance of the nation-state, the role of civil society in good governance, and the relationship between social movements and social policy. Professor Oommen analyses these issues and simultaneously contests several of the prevailing conceptualisations, both Indian and Western, while invoking South Asian/Indian empirical reality to interrogate, modify and reformulate western theory.Following an over-arching Introduction, the three interrelated themes are discussed in separate sections, each containing four chapters. The three sections examine contentious notions of nation and nationality in twentieth-century South Asia; the relationship between civil society, state and market; and, social movements and their relationship with social policy.
