The Untouchables: Subordination, Poverty and the State in Modern India

The Untouchables: Subordination, Poverty and the State in Modern India

Oliver Mendelsohn Marika Vicziany
4/5 (5 ratings)
In a compelling account of the lives of those at the bottom of Indian society, the authors explore the construction of the Untouchables as a social and political category, the historical background that led to such a definition and their position in India today. The authors argue that, despite efforts to ameliorate their condition, a considerable edifice of discrimination persists. The book promises to make a major contribution to the social and economic debates on poverty, while its wide-ranging perspectives will ensure a readership from across the disciplines.
