    Science, Hegemony and Violence: A Requiem for Modernity.Ashis Nandy (ed.) - 1988 - Oxford University Press.
    This volume presents six essays by leading sociologists, philosophers, physicists, and environmental activists that examine the links between science and violence from the Baconian era to the present day. It looks at two basic issues: science as it provides a new justification for state violence; and science as violent technological intervention, invading and disrupting stable patterns of private life in the name of progress and development.

    Traditions, Tyranny, and Utopias: Essays in the Politics of Awareness.Ashis Nandy - 1987 - Oxford University Press.
    These six essays present an outsider's view of Western norms of progress, rationality, and maturity, and offer an alternate perspective on oppression in modern times. Well-known psychologist and social theorist Ashis Nandy stresses the importance of considering world views held by the "non-modern" cultures of the Third World in formulating a more humane and less technologically preoccupied vision of progress. Institutionalized oppression is seen as a process which co-opts the physical and psychological worlds of its victims and destroys the basis (...)

    History's Forgotten Doubles.Ashis Nandy - 1995 - History and Theory 34 (2):44-66.
    The historical mode may be the dominant mode of constructing the past in most parts of the globe but it is certainly not the most popular mode of doing so. The dominance is derived from the links the idea of history has established with the modern nation-state, the secular worldview, the Baconian concept of scientific rationality, nineteenth-century theories of progress and, in recent decades, development. This dominance has also been strengthened by the absence of any radical critique of the idea (...)

    Creating a Nationality the Ramjanmabhumi Movement and Fear of the Self.Ashis Nandy, Shikha Trivedy, Shail Mayaram & Achyut Yagnik - 1995 - Oxford University Press, Usa.
    The authors argue that the chain of events which they describe is the end-product of a century's effort to convert Hindus into a 'proper' modern nation and a conventional ethnic majority. Simultaneously, the effort is equally to turn the followers of other Indian faiths into well-behaved ethnic minorities and nationalities. The American model of a 'melting pot' is being imposed with the expectation that it will dissolve India's primordial identities. A society which has for centuries been a salad bowl of (...)
