The essays explore Sufism as it developed in the Indian subcontinent, including translations of previously unavailable texts, and revealing unexpected insights into the lives, practices, and teachings of Indian Muslims over nearly a thousand years. They also trace remarkable moments in the history of Muslim engagement with Indian religious and cultural practices. This includes not only Muslim participation in Indian art and literature, but also the extraordinary role that Sufis have played in the practice of yoga. Employing new approaches to religious studies that avoid essentialism and ideological concepts of religion, and shorn of unnecessary jargon, these compelling essays will be easily accessible to a larger audience.

This collection of articles by Carl W Ernst summarizes over 30 years of research, recovering and illuminating remarkable examples of Islamic culture that have been largely overlooked, if not forgotten. It opens with reflections on teaching Islam, focusing on major themes such as Sufism, the Qur’an, the Prophet Muhammad, and Arabic literature. The importance of public scholarship and the questionable opposition between Islam and the West are also addressed. The articles that follow explore multiple facets of Sufism, the ethical and spiritual tradition that has flourished in Muslim societies for over a thousand years. The cumulative effect is to move away from static Orientalist depictions of Sufism and Islam through a series of vivid and creative case studies.

In 1971, a war which took place in Pakistan that resulted in the establishment of two separate countries; East Pakistan became Bangladesh, leaving the remaining four western provinces to comprise a truncated Pakistan. This book examines how literature by those who remained Pakistanis acts as a cultural response to the threat the war posed to a nationalist identity. It provides an analysis of the writing by Pakistani authors in their attempt to deal with the radical shock of the war and shows how fiction about the war helps readers imagine what the paring down of the country means for any abiding articulation of a Pakistani group identification. The author discusses English-and Urdu-language fictions in the context of the historical debate about Pakistani nationalism, including how such nationalism informs literary culture, and in the contemporary interest in official apologies for the past. The author organises the literary analysis around four key issues: the domestic sphere and the family; the territorial limits of citizenship; multiculturalism, class, and nationalist history; and diasporic imaginings of the nation. These issues resonate across the fictions in both languages and the author's analysis of them traces how these works grapple with changing notions of what it means to be Pakistani after the civil war and offers an interesting discussion to studies in South Asia.

How should governance be made more accountable and transparent? The book, wide-ranging and panoramic in content, seeks to intellectually confront the provocative question and explore, in the process, the highly elusive and controversial theme of democratic governance. It conceptualizes and contextualises the theme in the Indian context in terms of certain specific parameters and clues. The book contains contribution from a wide section of leading commentators, having long years of experience in teaching and research, who also have governance as their major or emerging area of interest. Followed by a lucid introduction which problematises the theme in general terms, the contributions in the book concern as diverse sub-themes as social capital, democratic decentralization, urban governance, rural governance, policy outcomes, mass upsurge corporate governance. The contributions, as the title of the book indicates, are a mixed bag of reflections on and refractions of democratic governance in India. They also contain refractions in the sense of revealing the 'bends' at particular points of the trajectory of the process. The book will complement the ongoing debate on democratic governance and will be a standard reference for the researchers, analysts and students of social science. It should also be valuable to the policymakers who wish to receive analytical and critical feedback on governance.

The most pertinent social, economic and political issues confronting India today center around the question of modernity. In this book, Javeed Alam seeks to untangle the complex, and often contradictory, constructions of modernity. He suggests new ways of approaching modernity which are liberatory, rather than oppressive, and may help in the struggle for a more equitable and just society both within the country and in the wider world.
