Surviving Against Odds: The Marginalized in a Globalizing World
Against Odds: The Marginalized in a Globalizing World
By- Debal K.
Though many of
the pre-existing processes of marginalization are getting weakened with the
expansion of the democratic and liberal forces, several new dimensions of marginalization
are in the making and old ones are also getting reinforced in the wake of
globalization. This collection of essays with reputed scholars from India,
United States of America, United Kingdom and the Czech Republic critically
examines the changing forms and dimensions of marginalization in a globalized
world, the emerging nature of intertwining of caste, race and gender inequality
with marginalization, the nature and forms of marginalization of the tribes,
dalits, religious minorities, peasants and children. Also the middle class, new
service users in contemporary society, and the process of articulation of
protest of the marginalized at the grass roots.
would be of immense use to the students, researchers, teachers of sociology,
political science, economics, history, social psychology and development
studies, and also to the civil society activists, planners, executives and
politicians dealing with the issues of social development, marginalization and
