It would give you the courage to form your ownunderstanding of the holy book.The TribuneIn Living the Qur'an in Our Times, the authorcombines theological insight and philosophicalerudition to delve into the semantics of the Qur'an andits vision. This work explains why traditional religionhas failed to respond adequately to challenges posed by modernity. It strives to recognizethe intimate connection between a Muslim's struggle to live the Qur'an authenticallyand the many ethical and moral dilemmas one faces daily in one's life. Enlighteningfor all those who are unfamiliar with Islamic history and the Qur'an, this book exploresfoundational Islamic principles that emphasize mutual respect and cooperation amongall people, thus helping cultivate a vibrant Islamic identity in today's interdependent,multicultural global environment.CONTENTSPreface / Introduction / Perennial Islam: A Qur'an Based Paradigm / The Qur'an as a Revealed Book: SomeIssues / The Semantics of the Qur'an: Some Basic Aspects / The Vision of the Qur'an: Selected Texts / ThePiety of the Qur'an: Selected Texts / The Injunctions of the Qur'an / The Perennial Message of the Qur'anand the Human Situation / Afterword / Notes / Annotated Glossary of Key Concepts / Resources / Index ofNames / Index of Subjects2012 240 pages Hardback (978-8-132- 11046-0) 695.00The work is an Interesting study of social, economic andeducational condition of the OBCs among Muslims inIndia.the study has tried to fill the gaps in the literatureon Muslims and generated empirical evidence fromthe data which shows under-representation of MuslimOBCs in India.Journal of Intercultural StudiesThis book presents the sociological perspectives onMuslim OBCs as a category determined by the IndianState. Although Muslims constitute an important partof the population and are the second largest religious community in the world, aswell as in India, social scientists rarely undertake this community to analyze theirsocioeconomic and educational development. Muslim Backward Classes provides acomprehensive explanation of the origin and meaning of the term “backward class,”followed with the historical perspectives of Muslim backwardness in India. The volumefills the gap in the literature and presents a broad-based picture of the problems ofMuslim OBCs, highlighting the questions of justice and equal opportunity to all groupsirrespective of religion.CONTENTSPreface / Introduction / An Overview of Muslims in India / Origin of Backward Classes / Muslim Backwardnessin India / Stratification among Muslims in India: A Caste, Class Debate / Sociological Dimensions amongMuslim OBCs / Internal Dynamics among Muslim OBCs: An Interpretation / Millennium Development Goals andMuslim OBCs / Conclusion / Appendix 1 : India’s MDG Framework: Goals, Targets, and Indicators / Appendix2 The Central Government Schemes and Commissions for the Minorities / Appendix 3 Central List of OBCsfor the State of Uttar Pradesh / Appenidix 4 Questionnaire / Bibliography / Index2013 316 pages Hardback (978-8-132-11167-2) 850.00BEING MUSLIM ANDWORKING FOR PEACEAmbivalence and Ambiguity in GujaratRaphael Susewind University ofBielefeld and University of OxfordAdds to the academic discourse by focussing on Muslimpeace workers and activists in the state of Gujarat. thebook is a rare collection of brave accounts of people,asserting different identities. It may inspire peoplein various capacities to engage with the society andwork for peace.the author definitely takes the subjectbeyond the contour of religion and makes a sociologicalcontribution of great significance.The StatesmanBeing Muslim and Working for Peace explores various ways in which religiousbeliefs, ritual practices and dynamics of belonging impact the politics of Muslim peaceactivists in Gujarat, and traces how their activism in turn transforms their sense ofbeing. It challenges popular notions about Muslims in India and questions ill-conceivedresearch designs in the sociology of religion. More than a decade after the 2002 riotsin Gujarat, this empirical typology sheds light on the diversity of Muslim civil societyand Muslims in civil society. Muslim peace activists in post-conflict Gujarat experiencethe 'ambivalence of the sacred' as a personal dynamic; as faith-based actors, seculartechnocrats, emancipating women and doubting professionals, they struggle for a betterfuture in diverse and sometimes surprising ways. By taking their diversity seriously,this book sharpens the distinction between ambivalence and ambiguity, and providesfresh perspectives on religion and politics in India today.Two Views of Social Change inRural IndiaB S Baviskar Late of University of Delhi andD W Attwood McGill University, MontrealPoverty in rural India: Is this a permanent condition?Are villagers immobilized by a rigid caste system,limited resources and economic exploitation? Thisbook is about villagers who have done remarkablethings with their lives—people who have brokenthe constraints of poverty and inequality to becomeinnovative and mobile. It is written partly by onevillager who found a career doing research on socialchange. Inside–Outside narrates stories of grassrootschange and innovation. These stories are discussedfrom the combined view of an insider (Baviskar), who grew up in a village in westernIndia, and an outsider (Attwood), who came to study social change in the same region.Telling life stories from people who taught and surprised them, they challenge commonstereotypes about Indian villagers—stereotypes of passivity, fatalism, and stagnation.CONTENTSReligion in Conflict / Why Individuals Matter / Faith-based Actors / Secular Technocrats / EmancipatingWomen / Doubting Professionals / Ambivalence and Ambiguity / Epilogue: An Activist's Comments /References / IndexPreface / Introduction / I: PILKHOD AND BEYOND / Inside the Family (Pilkhod) / Inside the Village (Pilkhod)/ High School (Chalisgaon) / College and University (Pune and Delhi) / II: OAK PARK AND BEYOND / EarlyDays (Oak Park) / Attwoods and Allied Families (USA) / Leaving Home (Deep Springs, Berkeley, Chicago) /Outsider in India (Bichpuri) / III: INSIDE OUT AND BACK AGAIN / Marriage Out (Chalisgaon, Pune, Delhi) /Discovering Sociology (Delhi) / Fieldwork Back Home (Kopargaon Sugar Factory) / IV: FROM OUTSIDE IN/ How I Returned to India (Pune District) / I Was Misinformed (Malegaon Village) / Villagers as Agents ofHistory (Nira Valley) / V: INSIDE AND OUT / Outsider in Sanjaya Village (Gujarat) / Outside and Inside theFamily (Pilkhod) / VI: THOUGHTS ON COOPERATION, INEQUALITY, AND POINTS OF VIEW / Cooperation andControversy / Villager Sociology, Economic Inequality, and Poverty / Caste Barriers to Initiative and Innovation/ Points of View / Glossary / Bibliography / Index2013 180 pages Hardback (978-8-132-11042-2) 650.002014 472 pages Hardback (978-8-132-11350-8) 995.00CONTENTS2INSIDE-OUTSIDE

This book posits theScheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs)vis-á-vis their upper-caste Hindu peers and establisheshow caste is a lived reality in everyday life in modernIndia. It explores areas where caste and religious exclusion are most visible, such ashuman development, inequality, poverty, educational attainments, child malnutrition,health, employment, wages, gender, and access to public goods. With an in-depththeoretical foundation and empirical analysis, it establishes that in each of these sectors,the performance of upper-caste Hindu households is far better compared to that fromthe SC, ST,and Muslim households.CONTENTSForeword by Sukhadeo Thorat / Preface / Introduction / The Human Development Index / Inequality andPoverty / Educational Attainment / Child Malnutrition / Health Outcomes / Employment and Wages / ThePosition of Women / Public Policy: Integrated Child Development (Anganwadi) Services / Public Policy: TheRashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana / Conclusion / References / Index2015 348 pages Hardback (978-9-351-50267-8) 995.00RECASTING CASTEFrom the Sacred to the ProfaneHira Singh York University, TorontoRecasting Caste confronts the mainstream sociologyof caste at its root: Louis Dumont’s Homo Hierarchicusand its main source, Max Weber’s distinction betweenclass and status. Conventional wisdom on caste isidealist, and most students of the subject thereforeexaggerate ritual homogeneity and deflect attentionfrom intracaste differentiation and inequality. Incontrast, by focusing on intracaste differences,Professor Singh demonstrates that caste hierarchyis grounded in a monopoly of land rights and politicalpower supported by religious and secular ideology.Drawing on the sociological, anthropological andhistorical literature, as well as primary sources, this book refutes the widespread claimthat, in India, caste consciousness always trumps class consciousness. It questionsthe twin myths that caste is a product of Hinduism and that caste is essential to thesurvival of Hinduism. It thereby reorients the entire field of study.CONTENTSPreface: Growing up in Caste, Studying Caste—A Personal and Professional Story / Introduction / StudyingCaste: Ideas, Material Conditions and History / Priest and Prince: Status–Power Muddle / Varna to Caste:Religious and Economic-Political / Caste and Subaltern Studies: Elite Ideology, Revisionist Historiography/ Inequalities between and within Castes: Kin, Caste and Land / Changing Land Relations and Caste: Viewfrom a Village / Indenture, Religion and Caste: The Twin Myths about Hinduism and Caste / Appendices /Glossary / Bibliography / Index2014 312 pages Hardback (978-8-132-11346-1) 850.00Get to Know more aboutSAGE, be invited to SAGE events,get on our mailing list!Write to marketing@sagepub.inFACING GLOBALIZATION INNTHE HIMALAYASBelonging and the Politics of the SelfEdited by Gerard Toffin Director ofResearch, National Center for ScientificResearch (CNRS), Villejuif and JoannaPfaff-Czarnecka Bielefeld UniversityThis book explores the complex relationships betweenbelonging and globalization in the contemporaryHimalayan world and beyond.
