Description - Alien Concepts and South Asian Reality by T. K. Oommen

In this thought-provoking book T K Oommen demonstrates that Indian social science is not a mere captive of Western or Marxist intellectual influences. Part One is a response to five Western and Marxist theories and concepts: the old concept of dichotomy and the new one of continuum; Weber's notion of charismatic leaders; political pluralism; voluntary associations; and the nature of students' movements in the context of revolution. In Part Two the author reformulates various theories and concepts based on empirical evidence from Asia.
