An engaging read that explores independent documentary film in India as a site of resistance. This book looks at how independent Indian documentary film reworks the relationship between film-makers, their narratives, their subjects and their audience, challenging the dominant idea of documentary as a discourse of the real. Based on close textual analysis, conversations with film-makers and drawing on Breitrose’s cinéma-vérité film-maker as a ‘fly in the soup’, this work explores the place of documentary within the Indian public sphere.

Civil society as an analytical concept is increasingly treated with suspicion in the study of politics in postcolonial societies. While engaging with Dalit struggles for civility, this book offers a critique of normative liberal assumptions of civil society and also counters the scholarship that rejects the idea and possibility of civil society in postcolonial societies. Based on an ethnography of Dalit movements in Maharashtra, this book highlights the centrality of caste in constructing localized forms and processes of civil society. The study marks a shift from perspectives that either emphasize the role of the state in shaping civil society or totally ignore the role of caste in its formation. As one of the first books on the post-Panther phase of Dalit politics in Maharashtra, this book makes an important contribution. It reopens the debate on the nature and forms of Dalit assertion in the 1990s and looks beyond the ‘impasse’ in Dalit politics.

The history of Buddhism has been characterized by an ongoing tension between attempts to preserve traditional ideals and modes of practice and the need to adapt to changing cultural conditions. Many developments in Buddhist history, such as the infusion of esoteric rituals, the rise of devotionalism and lay movements, and the assimilation of warrior practices, reflect the impact of widespread social changes on traditional religious structures. At the same time, Buddhism has been able to maintain its doctrinal purity to a remarkable degree. This volume explores how traditional Buddhist communities have responded to the challenges of modernity, such as science and technology, colonialism, and globalization. Editors Steven Heine and Charles S. Prebish have commissioned ten essays by leading scholars, each examining a particular traditional Buddhist school in its cultural context. The essays consider how the encounter with modernity has impacted the disciplinary, textual, ritual, devotional, practical, and socio-political traditions of Buddhist thought throughout Asia. Taken together, these essays reveal the diversity and vitality of contemporary Buddhism and offer a wide-ranging look at the way Buddhism interacts with the modern world.

Ce récit, fondé sur une exceptionnelle documentation familiale, raconte une histoire vraie, celle d'une famille d'intouchables vivant dans l'ouest de l'Inde au XXe siècle. Un jour de 1927, Damu, le père de l'auteur, refusant de subir une humiliation de plus, se révolte et, la nuit tombée, quitte le village en compagnie de sa femme Sonu... Commence alors une aventure qui conduit le couple à vivre les situations les plus extrêmes, celles de l'intouchabilité au jour le jour ici et là dans le pays, et à Bombay notamment - misère, violence, mépris - , puis à rejoindre le mouvement de lutte pour l'émancipation dirigé à l'époque par un intouchable formé aux Etats-Unis, fils des Lumières, le fameux Babasahed Ambedkar, le grand rival de Gandhi dans les années 1930, l'homme qui rendit leur dignité aux misérables. Ce combat est loin d'être achevé aujourd'hui, car si le système des castes a été officiellement aboli en 1950, il continue à prospérer et à régenter la vie des Indiens sous des formes plus ou moins insidieuses, tant en ville qu'à la campagne. Ce dont témoigne aussi cette histoire bouleversante. Lors de sa divulgation en Inde il y a deux ans, ce récit d'aventures a été fêté comme un événement. Narendra Jadhav, économiste de formation, a longtemps travaillé comme cadre dirigeant au FMI. Il est actuellement haut fonctionnaire au ministère des Finances du gouvernement indien. La famille d'intouchables dont il est ici question, c'est donc la sienne. Traduit de l'anglais (Inde) par Simone Manceau.

Eine abenteuerliche Reise in 100 magische Welten Als der 12-jährige Henry York zur Familie seines Onkels zieht, findet er das düstere alte Haus ziemlich gruselig. Und als immer wieder seltsame Dinge geschehen, beginnt er nachzuforschen und macht eines Nachts eine unglaubliche Entdeckung: Hinter dem Putz an der Wand seines Zimmers verbergen sich 100 Pforten – magische Portale, die in 100 fremde Welten führen. Aufgeregt öffnen Henry und seine Cousine Henrietta ein Tor nach dem anderen. Doch nicht alle dieser magischen Zauberreiche sind so friedlich wie es zunächst scheint – hinter einigen Toren lauern gefährliche Hexen und Dämonen, die den Kindern den Rückweg in ihre Welt verwehren ... Ein mächtiger Gong erfüllte die Kammer und ließ Henry erzittern. Etwas stieß ihn von hinten. „Dieser Weg“, sagte eine unheimliche Stimme, „war viele Jahre lang verschlossen. Nenne deinen Namen!“ Henry antwortete nicht. „Nenne deinen Namen!“, sagte die Stimme noch einmal. „Das kann ich nicht“, sagte Henry. Die Stimme lachte und sagte etwas, das Henry das Blut in den Adern gefrieren lieߠ... Ein bezauberndes Kinderbuch voller Fantasie und sprühender Einfälle.
