The Radical in Ambedkar: Critical Reflections

01 December 2018

Edited by Anand Teltumbde and Suraj Yengde

This collection not only establishes Ambedkar as a staunch advocate for equality in modern India but also goes into unexplored perspectives on a figure who pioneered the conversation on equality and was also a scholar of Indian history, society and foreign policy. The essays, by renowned experts on the political economy of discrimination, explore and contextualise Ambedkar’s thoughts on the oppression and exclusion Dalits face, and the applicability of his theory to contemporary antisystemic movements.
