Such are the constraints of disciplinary boundaries that even when scholars come together in a collective effort to analyse recent processes, their focus narrows down to specific themes, invaribaly privileging one kind of methodological or conceptual framework over others. The present volume of essays- the outcome of seminar` Changing Social Formaitons in Contemporary India`, organized under the auspices of the School of Social Sciences of JNU, New Delhi, in 2003- represents an attempt to over come some the limitations of this trend.
