Questions of Identity in Assam SAGE Publications India Pvt Ltd
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
"Questions of Identity in Assam: Location, Migration, Hybridity" addresses the identity problem in Assam, keenly affected as it is, by the realities of migration and hybridity. The book provides an overview of these issues as they are reflected in the region, and covers the period from the conclusion of the Assam Movement till the present. The Assam Movement spawned a culture of violence which led to the emergence of insurgent outfits in the state. This resulted in the naturalization of violence as a part of everyday living. From this vantage point, the book offers a reading of identity as determined by the anxiety surrounding the presence of the migrants. In this book, the issue of migration is seen through the perspective of the society that receives the migrants and defines itself through a negative response to the other.

Excerpt from The History of India: With Chapters on the Physical Geography; The Ancient and Modern Political Divisions and Places of Interest; And 'India in 1900,' Its Peoples, Their Condition, Resources, Institutions and Forms of Imperial, Provincial, and Municipal Government 1. Extent and Boundaries. - India (excluding the province of Burma, or Burmah) may be described roughly as the country which lies between the Himalaya mountains and the sea. From Quetta in British Baluchistan, in the extreme west, to the eastern borders of Assam is a distance of about 1,800 miles. About the same distance separates Peshawar, in the north of the Panjab, from Cape Comorin at the southern extremity of the Empire. And the area included within these limits exceeds 1,587,000 square miles; and if to this be added the territories of Burma, the total extent of the Indian Empire is about 1,800,000 square miles, or nearly one-fourth of the whole of the British Empire. Its boundary on the north is the mountain-chain of the Himalayas, the highest mountains in the world. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Economics of Elementary Education in India SAGE Publications Ltd
Among all the large emerging market economies, India has one of the lowest educational indicators for a majority of its population living in its most backward states. These states account for most of the country??'s children out of school and most of its illiterate population. Not surprisingly, they are the states with the highest incidence of poverty in India. This volume examines key aspects of the elementary education system in the poorer and educationally backward states of India. Providing the first state by state analysis of major cost and financing issues, the book is based on data gathered from one of the most comprehensive surveys conducted in recent times, which was specifically commissioned for this book. The survey covered 120,000 households and a thousand schools spread over 91 districts in eight states. Written by leading education economists, the original essays in this volume: Analyze the major cost and financing issues in elementary schooling in seven of the eight states surveyed???Assam, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal; Identify recent initiatives made by the governments of these seven states; Systematically scrutinise the pattern of public spending in elementary education; Examine enrolment in government schools and the quality of education that they impart; Study household expenditure on schooling???the costs to parents of sending children to school; Compare government schools with private schools, showing how the private sector has begun to take over the work of government agencies, particularly in the poorer states. In a country where administrative records???concerning enrolment, drop-out, retention andrepetition???are unreliable as a source of data, surveys and analyses of the type reported in this volume help policy-makers and scholars get a better picture of the ground realities. This interesting and lucidly written book will be of interest to those in the fields of education (particularly primary and elementary education), health, welfare economics, and education finance and funding. It will also attract the attention of NGOs, administrators, and donors and multilateral agencies active in the field of education.
