Product description


"Democracy against Development realizes a lot of the promise of the new political anthropology of India. Jeffrey Witsoe's ethnographic focus ensures that the rich and diverse struggle over caste and its political forms can be revealed. He is able to show precisely how colonially structured caste, as identity and power, is reshaped in the working of Indian democracy." (Kalyanakrishnan Sivaramakrishnan, Yale University)"
