ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: viii, pages ; 22 cm: Contents: Brief history of subalternity / David Ludden --Peasantry, politics, and historiography: critique of new trend in relation to Marxism / Javeed Alam --Subaltern studies II: a review article / Sangeeta Singh [and others] --Significance of non-subaltern mediation / Ranajit Das Gupta --Subaltern.

        Well written and cogently argued, the book is indispensable to students of modern South Asian history. It will also appeal to the lay reader who is interested in the history of communalism in India and to anyone interested in understanding the research methods of scholars associated with the Subaltern Studies Collective. Providing a radical critique of elite culture and of liberal, bourgeois, and modern epistemologies and projects, the essays included here prove that Latin American Subaltern Studies is much more than the mere translation of subaltern studies from South Asia to Latin America.
