Synopsis

This volume-in the Themes in Politics series-focuses on the relationship between language (culture) and politics (power) at the social, political, historical, cultural, and ideological levels. It explains the conceptual and historical unfolding of this relationship between 1900 and 2000. It also expands newer areas and frontiers of research and critical thinking by drawing attention to readings from different disciplines and perspectives. The essays have been thematically arranged to illustrate the rich diversity of issues and arguments. The plurality and methodological innovativeness is reflected in the selection of readings and their novel ways of interpreting the language question. The major highlights of this volume are India's linguistic diversity and its political predicament; linguistic states formation in independent India; Indian Constitution and the language question; linguistic minorities; and language and education.

Asha Sarangi is Associate Professor, Centre for Political Studies, School of Social Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
