Dalits in Neoliberal India Mobility or Marginalisation? Synopsis

India`s economic growth has brought opportunities for many but to what extent has it benefitted its ethnically-shaped underclass: the Dalits?

This volume offers a varied picture of Dalit experience in different states

Dalits in Neoliberal India Mobility or Marginalisation? Press Reviews

'This volume takes a fresh look at one of the key debates on caste in contemporary India: whether Dalits are finally unshackling the stranglehold of economic marginalisation, discrimination and stigma, and straddling new opportunities for upward mobility, as the Indian economy liberalises.' -- Ashwini Deshpande, Professor of Economics, Delhi School of Economics '[A] book about the contemporary realities of caste, the dynamics of change and its persistence, the messy realities of prejudice, exclusion and deprivation along with positive stories of mobility, social movements and deepening democracy in today's India.' -- Surinder S. Jodhka, Professor of Sociology, Jawaharlal Nehru University 'Offers a wide-ranging and incisive analysis of the condition of India's Dalits ... thoughtful, rich, and beautifully observed -- a wonderful resource for South Asianists and development scholars.' -- Craig Jeffrey, Professor of Development Geography, University of Oxford
