Description - Social Exclusion and Justice in India by P. S. Krishnan

This book draws upon nearly seven decades of first-hand experiences from the ground to understand social exclusion, and movements and efforts for social justice in India. The author, a renowned champion of social justice for deprived social classes, delves into the roots of discrimination in Indian society as well as explains why caste discrimination still persists and how it can be effectively countered. The volume:

  • examines the caste system and its socio-economic ramifications from the perspective of Dalits, and Socially and Educationally Backward Classes;
  • explores the nuances of the Gandhi-Ambedkar debate on the status and liberation of Dalits and synthesis of the approaches of Gandhi, Ambedkar, Narayana Guru and Marx in resolving certain key issues;
  • analyses legal, economic, social and cultural frameworks to understand caste system and related concepts such as 'untouchability', atrocities, reservation, etc. in contemporary India; and
  • provides practical insights into the Constitution-based comprehensive measures required to remedy the consequences of caste system and establish social equality in a holistic manner.

The book will interest scholars and researchers of social exclusion and social justice, Dalit, Adivasi and Backward Classes studies, sociology and social anthropology, politics, law and human rights, as well as policy-makers, think tanks and NGOs in the field.
