            Class and the Making of American Literature: Created Unequal

            This book refocuses current understandings of American Literature from the revolutionary period to the present-day through an analytical accounting of class, reestablishing a foundation for discussions of class in American culture. American Studies scholars have explored the ways... in which American society operates through inequality and modes of social control, focusing primarily on issues of status group identities involving race/ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and disability. The essays in this volume focus on both the historically changing experience of class and its continuing hold on American life. The collection visits popular as well as canonical literature, recognizing that class is constructed in and mediated by the affective and the sensational. It analyzes class division, class difference, and class identity in American culture, enabling readers to grasp why class matters, as well as the economic, social, and political matter of class. Redefining the field of American literary cultural studies and asking it to rethink its preoccupation with race and gender as primary determinants of identity, contributors explore the disciplining of the laboring body and of the emotions, the political role of the novel in contesting the limits of class power and authority, and the role of the modern consumer culture in both blurring and sharpening class divisions.

            Identity, Inequity and Inequality in India and China: Governing Difference (Hardback)

            This volume explores how difference is constructed, manifested, mobilised and obscured in socially uneven societies, particularly those fuelled by neoliberal economic growth in the recent years. We approach difference as a double edged performance that allows one to make sense of... the tensions that are played out between 'cosmopolitan' convergence and 'multicultural' diversity, between expanding middle classes and increasingly disenfranchised poor groups, between the global and the local. The chapters in this volume present a series of empirical explorations of how difference is articulated, desired, levelled, governed and even subverted in the socio-economically uneven landscapes of India and China. They examine how difference emerges out of daily practice, categorisation processes, dividing practices, nation building efforts and identity projects. Through these empirical studies, we see how difference is articulated along a number of axes: differentiations of groups or persons according to hierarchies of superiority/inferiority; the demarcation of difference as something that is potentially disruptive and therefore in need of containment; the 'celebration' of difference as diversity, and finally, the ways in which difference comes to be internalised in the shaping of individual identities. Another common theme that binds a number of contributions is the exploration of the role of the state in constructing and controlling these differences, and the ways in which these interventions rearrange the social-political landscapes. This book was published as a special issue of Third World Quarterly.

            Security, Socialisation and Affect in Indian Families: Unfamiliar Ground
             

            Security, Socialisation and Affect in Indian Families: Unfamiliar Ground (Hardback)

            Edited by Raja, Ira

            • RRP: $282.00

            • To Order/ Indent titles

            Sociological studies on the Indian family have been mainly preoccupied with quantitative and morphological aspects of household form/composition, to the neglect of the more 'ineffable' dimensions of family life and relationships. The present volume brings together ten chapters wi...th an interest in a more broadly-based reconstruction of the field of Indian family and kinship studies, including scholars from law, literature, anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, queer theory, and Business Management. Through a study of literary, cinematic, legal and cultural texts, this collection offers an understanding of the changing face of the Indian family, paying special attention to the family's role as a provider of social security to its members, in normal or abnormal times; its part in the reproduction of class structures and values, whose perpetuation of gender differentiated access to familial resources serves as an important mechanism of sex role socialisation; and the articulation of sexuality in cultural texts ranging from children's literature to contemporary cinema. This book was published as a special issue of South Asia: Journal of South Asian Studies.
