'The Everyday State and Society in Modern India' focuses on how the
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
and negotiable according to social context and position. The
adopt the position, contrary to that of many others, that most Indians
able to comprehend and use the institutions of the state.
All the eight essays in this book are original contributions and are
on empirical research. This is also the first book to present such a
of anthropological and sociological material on the Indian state,
Delhi and Uttar Pradesh in the north, Maharashtra in the west, West
in the east, and Tamil Nadu and Kerala in the south. The central theme
the book, the everyday dimensions of the state and society's relation to
in modern India, is explored in the first essay, an important
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
and political environment.
