Social and economic changes around the globe have propelled increasing numbers of people into situations of chronic waiting, where promised access to political freedoms, social goods, or economic resources is delayed, often indefinitely. But there have been few efforts to reflect on the significance of "waiting" in the contemporary world. Timepass fills this gap by offering a captivating ethnography of the student politics and youth activism that lower middle class young men in India have undertaken in response to pervasive underemployment. It highlights the importance of waiting as a social experience and basis for political mobilization, the micro-politics of class power in north India, and the socio-economic strategies of lower middle classes. The book also explores how this north Indian story relates to practices of waiting occurring in multiple other contexts, making the book of interest to scholars and students of globalization, youth studies, and class across the social sciences.

Development Failure and Identity Politics in Uttar Pradesh provides a qualitative, in-depth understanding of development failures and identity politics in Uttar Pradesh (UP). It investigates neoliberal change and political transformation in India through the lens of UP, India’s largest and, by some measures, poorest state. It examines the connection between transitions in the contemporary economy of India and transformations in politics from the standpoint of UP. The book demonstrates how an understanding of dynamics in UP might provide new perspective on issues such as the state, the civil society, caste, democracy and social impact of economic reforms—issues that are the subject of vigorous debate in India as a whole.

Personal meditations on the wondrous and exalted idea of Freedom in all its rich and varied fecundity. Now with over 7,000 million of us on this earth, what could freedom possibly mean for us as earthlings, and as dreaming creatures always asking at every bend in the road about the meaning and purpose of our lives, and the yearning to cut the rope and be free? Freedom is at the heart of creation; these beautifully expressed thoughts on the meaning of freedom in our intricate and challenging world by an original and provocative thinker, are a delight to read. –Dr. Khalid Sohail, Psychotherapist & Poet, Canada In the company of great thinkers, philosophers and poets of all ages, and honed by the testimony of all that is good and evil in mankind, Sehdev Kumar has presented before us a resounding YES to the centuries-old question: “Am I my brother’s keeper?” –Dr. Máximo Barón. Plenary Professor of Physics and Epistemology Universidad de Belgrano. Buenos Aires. Argentina

Liberalism has been the leading political theory of the past three hundred years and, by far, the most dominant ideology. Many think tanks are associated with liberal ideas, and most Western countries are considered liberal democracies. But does liberalism really cover the wide range of political ideas found in Western civilization? Degrees of Freedom examines liberalism's universal claims and explains how liberal thinkers formulated insights that apply to all aspects of politics. It also contrasts liberalism and conservatism. Edwin van de Haar divides liberalism into three main variants: classical liberalism, social liberalism, and libertarianism. Without claiming that this is the only possible categorization of liberalism, he argues that this subdivision is the most comprehensible way out of liberal confusion. He explores how these forms of liberalism, found in popular parlance, relate to liberal political theory and ideology. Domestic politics and international relations are presented as a whole, in the firm belief that one cannot meaningfully present an overview of any tradition in political theory by stopping at national borders.

What are the psychological and social motivations that influence people to enter the priestly or religious life? Are these motivations easily changed, or do they tend to persist as they were? What dispositions help people to persevere in their vocation, or push them towards leaving? The first volume of the present study, stressing the indispensible action of God's grace, develops an anthropology of the Christian vocation, that is, a Christian vision of what the human person is and can become in answering God's call. The based in philosophical and theological anthropology of the Christian vocation, is earlier psyco-social theory of vocation are made more explicit. On these bases an anthropology of vocation is built up, which respects tradition and at the same time contains new and original ideas, like the notion of three dimensions or three kinds of habitual dispositions in the Christian person as he travels on the journey of vocation. The influence of these three dimensions on the person's ability to assimilate and internalize the value's of Christ is explored. The limits on human freedom which are to be distinguished from psychopathology are discussed.
