Provincial Politics and Indian Nationalism Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is a study of the Indian National Congress, the first political association to approach the government of India at an all-India level. The Congress became the most important national party in twentieth century India, and the whole history of the freedom movement is closely bound up with its fortunes. National politics, however, were influenced by regional and local affairs. In the early twentieth century the Indian Congress was split between the 'Moderates' and the 'Extremists'. Dr Johnson argues that this division was closely related to existing rivalries between politicians in the provinces, and that provincial interests determined their national point of view. Because the early Congress depended so much for its regular organisation on men from Bombay, party lines in western India were particularly important in determining the course of the struggles between the parties in the National Congress. The unpublished letters and diaries of the protagonists in these disputes have enabled Dr Johnson to examine this theme in detail. This is the first book to stress the need for study of regional and local politics as an integral part of the history of the Congress. Its revelation of the complex connections between parochial, provincial and all India politics adds a new dimension to our understanding of nationalism in South Asia.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Ethnologie / Volkskunde, Note: 2,0, Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The color of India's eastern state of West Bengal turned from red to green on Friday, when the world's longest-ruling elected communist government was decisively voted out of power (URL b). Mit diesen Worten kommentierte der Journalist Subir Bhaumik in seinem Artikel Defeat rocks India's elected communists das Ergebnis der Parlamentswahlen 2011 im indischen Bundesstaat Westbengalen. Die von der Communist Party of India (Marxist) geführte Left Front, welche Westbengalen seit 1977 ununterbrochen regierte, wurde von dem Parteienbündnis United Progressive Alliance, das von dem All India Trinamool Congress und dem Indian National Congress dominiert wird, abgelöst. Die Left Front ging nach 34 Jahren an der Macht, als demokratisch gewählte, kommunistische Staatsführung mit der bislang längsten Regierungszeit in die Geschichte ein. Westbengalen, besonders der Bardhaman Distrikt, war bis dato als kommunistische Hochburg bekannt (ebd., Ruud 2003: 13, 18). Welche Faktoren haben zu diesem andauernden Wahlerfolg der CPI(M) in Westbengalen geführt? Auf diese Frage geht Arild Engelsen Ruud in seiner politischen Ethnographie Poetics of Village Politics: The Making of West Bengal's Rural Communism ein. Unter anderem war die Unterstützung durch die breite Masse, in diesem Fall die Landbevölkerung, beispielsweise durch die Mitglieder der Bagdi-Kaste, ausschlaggebend.§In dieser Hausarbeit möchte ich mich mit der Darstellung der Bagdi-Kaste in Poetics of Village Politics: The Making of West Bengal's Rural Communism von Arild Engelsen Ruud beschäftigen. Dabei werde ich neben der Rolle der Bagdis in der Lokalpolitik und für die CPI(M) insbesondere auf ihr Selbstbild und ihren Bezug zu Gewalt und Kriminalität eingehen. Was die politischen Implikationen betrifft, werde ich den Fokus auf die Periode der Mobilisierung der Landbevölkerung durch die CPI(M) in den späten 1960er Jahren legen, da ich diese Entwicklungen besonders interessant finde.§Zunächst möchte ich einige grundlegende Begriffe und Konzepte abklären und beginne meine Arbeit aus diesem Grund mit der Definition von Kaste und einer kurzen Darlegung des indischen Kastensystems. Des Weiteren stelle ich Arild Engelsen Ruud und seine Monographie, auf der meine Arbeit basiert, kurz vor, bevor ich zum Kern meiner Hausarbeit, den Bagdis in Poetics of Village Politics , übergehe.

Constructing Pakistan OUP Pakistan

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The book addresses the hitherto neglected aspect of postcolonial and historical engagement with the creation and construction of Indian Muslim national identity before the partition of India in 1947. The author's main assertion, challenging the conventional and postcolonial appraisals of the Indian national history, is that the Indian Muslim particular identity and Muslim exceptionalism preceded the rise of Congress or Gandhian nationalism. Using major theories of nationalism-including works of Benedict Anderson, Anthony D. Smith, John Breuilly, Partha Chatterjee and others-and analysis of literary, political, and religious texts produced by Indian Muslims, Constructing Pakistan traces the varied Muslim responses to the post 1857 British ascendancy. Hence, overall, this study provides a multilayered discussion of Indian Muslim nationalism from the rise of post 1857 Muslim exceptionalism to the beginnings of a more focused struggle for a nation-sate in the 1940s. In this dual act of retrieval and intervention, a varied mixture of literary, political, and religious texts are employed to suggest that if the Muslim textual production of this time period is read within the realm of politics and not just within the arena of culture, then the rise of Indian Muslim nationalism can be clearly traced within these texts and through their affective value for the Indian Muslims. The author states that no such work exits either in the postcolonial field or in the field of area studies that combines close readings of the texts, their reception, and the politics of identity formation specifically related to the rise of Indian Muslim nationalism. The author's main argument hinges on two important assumptions: 1) After the rebellion it becomes extremely important for the Muslim elite to force the dominant British regime into a hegemonic view of the Muslims, and 2) this forces the Muslim elite to develop a language of politics that must always invoke the people in order to enter the British system of privileges and dispensations. Consequently, the rise of early Muslim exceptionalism and its eventual specific nationalistic unfolding, of which Pakistan was one outcome, can then be read as political acts that long preceded the Indian national party politics. The reason most Indian and European historians cannot trace a pronounced Muslim sense of separate identity before the 1940s is because they trace this identity either in the form of resistance or in the shape of party politics. The early loyalism of the Muslim elite, in such strategy, remains unexplained, as it does not fit the resistance model. The book attempts to re-read this loyalism as a sophisticated form of resistance that, in the end, makes the Muslim question central to the British politics of post-rebellion era. On the whole the book is a useful text for anyone interested in reading a more nuanced and theoretically innovative articulation of the complex nature of Indian Muslim nationalism and the eventual creation of Pakistan.

In Dynasty, biographer Pranay Gupte sheds light on the Nehrus and Gandhis of India, the longest lasting political dynasty in the modern world. The family's origins can be controversially traced back 200 years to Kashmir, where the Nehrus belonged to the Kashmiri Brahman Pandit class, and it has been in power for nearly a century. Since its patriarch, British-trained lawyer and Indian National Movement activist, Motilal Nehru, ascended to the presidency of the National Congress, the family has produced three Prime Ministers--Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. The current leader of the Congress Party, Italian-born Sonia Gandhi, is widely perceived as the most powerful woman in contemporary Indian politics, and her son, Rahul Gandhi, is the anointed successor. It is a dynasty that has ruled through statesmanship, guile and political savvy. It has enjoyed enormous popularity and power, suffered enormous tragedy (Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi were assassinated), and reversals of fortune. Most notably it wrested India from British colonial control and defined Independent India from its inception in 1948. Yet the founding prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, was an intimate friend of the wife of Lord Mountbatten, Britain's last viceroy. Except for a brief period--during the time of Indira Gandhi, and again after her death--the family has ruled by popular mandate, unlike other dynasties and autocracies in South Asia and the East. In this sense, the Nehrus/Gandhis are closer to the great ruling dynasties of the West, such as the Kennedys and the Bushes. The story of that family, its ambitions and striving for power, is gripping.

Becoming Winston Churchill Greenwood World Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Today a forgotten figure, Bourke Cockran was acclaimed during his lifetime as America's greatest orator. He was also the lover of Jenny Churchill - Winston's mother - after the death of Lord Randolph. And, for twelve years (1895 to 1906), he was the young Winston's mentor. Until now, the story of the extraordinary and crucial relationship between them has not been told. At one level, the story is about politics, exploring the ways the young Churchill adopted Cockran's political and economic views - on democracy, capitalism, the Gold Standard, Free Trade, Socialism: issues that Churchill was to make his own. On another level, the story is biographical, chronicling the meetings between the men, and reproducing - for the first time in full - their private correspondence. It is the story of Churchill growing up. On yet another level, it is historical, vividly evoking the late Victorian and Edwardian eras, when Churchill was often in the thick of the action - fighting at the Khyber Pass in India or escaping from a Boer camp in Pretoria (and becoming a household name as a consequence) - all the while keeping up his correspondence with Cockran. The drama of such events is part of the book's irresistible appeal. The book is written with a dramatic flair, bringing out the personalities of the two men. Each section begins, like a historical novel, with a recreation of a crucial moment in their lives. The general narrative is chronologically structured, with a powerful momentum, tracing the two men's growing intimacy over the years and interweaving their letters and meetings with the historical events in which they were involved. The story began in 1895 in New York, where Cockran took the young Winston under his wing. The following years, marked by turmoil in Cuba and Ireland, included the 1896 Presidential election, the great public debate about the gold standard and Cockran's private insistence to Churchill that principle must always be placed over party (something Churchill was to remember later when he crossed the floor of the House). 1899 saw Churchill's involvement in the Boer War, and his dramatic escape from a Boer prison camp, followed by his election to Parliament, visits to Cockran in America and, between 1901 and 1906, hard political fighting over the crucial issue of free trade, over which Churchill eventually left the Conservatives to join the Liberal party. The final years of Churchill and Cockran's friendship were dramatised by a number of public events - the American occupation of the Philippines, the victory of the Liberal Party in the British General Election, the First World War, about which they continued to correspond - but dominated by private ones: Cockran's remarriage, the death of Churchill's mother, and Churchill's own marriage. Throughout, the two men remained close, and, to the end, Cockran's influence on Churchill was unique and profound.

Nicklaus Thomas-Symonds - Attlee I B TAURIS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Clement Attlee - the man who created the welfare state and decolonised vast swathes of the British Empire, including India - has been acclaimed by many as Britains' greatest twentieth-century Prime Minister. Yet somehow Attlee the man remains elusive and little known. How did such a moderate, modest man bring about so many enduring changes? What are the secrets of his leadership style? And how do his personal attributes account for both his spectacular successes and his apparent failures? When Attlee became Prime Minister in July 1945 he was the leader of a Labour party that had won a landslide victory. With almost 50 per cent of the popular vote, Attlee seemed to have achieved the platform for Labour to dominate post-war British politics. Yet just 6 years and 3 months after the 1945 victory, and despite all Attlee's governments had appeared to achieve, Labour was out of office, condemned to opposition for a further 13 years. This presents one of the great paradoxes of twentieth-century British history: how Attlee's government achieved so much, but lost power so quickly. But perhaps the greatest paradox was Attlee himself. Attlee's obituary in "The Times" in 1967 stated that 'much of what he did was memorable; very little that he said'. This new biography, based on extensive research into Attlee's papers and first-hand interviews, examines the myths that have arisen around this key figure of British political life and provides a vivid portrait of the man and his politics.
