Social Movements: Transformative Shifts and Turning Points by Savyasaachi

This volume attempts to show the emerging contours of 'transformative action' in social movements across South Asia. It argues that these contours have been shaped by contestations over questions of equity, justice and well-being on the one hand, and the nature and scope of new and classical social movements on the other. This is manifest in diverse modes through people's struggles, protest and dissent.

The authors examine a variety of themes that have determined the course of the politics of transformative struggles. They critique neoliberalism, 'primitive' accumulation, money, class inequalities, as well as aspects of capital-labour conflict. They highlight the contributions of movements by women, dalit and marginalized communities; peace movements; and environmental and agrarian struggles. The volume also appraises the role of internet in grassroots mobilizations and that of civil society networks in the making of participatory democracy. It further argues that the predicaments of cultural, ethnic, national, regional, and linguistic identities are not divorced from capital-labour conflicts.

The book will serve as essential reading for students and scholars of sociology, social movements, politics, gender and feminist studies, labour studies, and the informed general reader.
