On Industrial Societies

On Industrial Societies Satish Saberwal "CRITICAL analyses of modern society ... seek new possibilities, new dimensions of freedom, in its inner movement", says Norman Birnbaum in a superb example of this genre. This critique focuses primarily on Western Europe

On the Asians in East Africa

For Prestige and Power PROLONGED interstate rivalries, claims and counter-claims for benefits, and Jammu and Kashmir's special constitutional status made a take-over of the multi-purpose Thein Dam Project by the Centre inevitable. What Punjab's successive Chief Ministers have time and again claimed as the state's exclusive property will thus become the Centre's project. Understandably, Punjab's large group of highly experienced power and irrigation engineers feel sore about the decision.

The argument is based on field data from a Punjabi industrial town and concerns political processes in the sixties.

International Social Science-Some Political Aspects

International Social Science Some Political Aspects Satish Saberwal The expansion of the USA's role in the world is paralleled by the growth of interest among American social scientists in "the problems'' of the poorer world. As the Americans and the Canadians have greater financial and scholastic resources at their disposal for social science research, they have been able to acquire vast "banks" of information.
