                ----------------------------------------
      'The Everyday State and Society in Modern India' focuses on how the
      large,
      amorphous and impersonal Indian state affects the everyday lives of
      ordinary citizens. The book argues that state and society merge in the
      day-to-day lives of most Indians, and the boundary between them is
      blurred
      and negotiable according to social context and position. The
      contributors
      adopt the position, contrary to that of many others, that most Indians
      are
      able to comprehend and use the institutions of the state.

      All the eight essays in this book are original contributions and are
      based
      on empirical research. This is also the first book to present such a
      range
      of anthropological and sociological material on the Indian state,
      covering
      Delhi and Uttar Pradesh in the north, Maharashtra in the west, West
      Bengal
      in the east, and Tamil Nadu and Kerala in the south. The central theme
      of
      the book, the everyday dimensions of the state and society's relation to
      it
      in modern India, is explored in the first essay, an important
      contribution
      on the subject.

      The essays dwell on a variety of issues, such as riot management, the
      Emergency, corruption, irrigation, rural activism and education and cut
      across academic disciplines. Written lucidly, on themes which preoccupy
      most people, these essays lend clarity and cogency to the confusion of
      everyday life, contributing to a better understanding of the Indian
      social
      and political environment.
