A novel approach has been used in the study of economic reforms through philosophical and theoretical arguments on issues such as civil society, religion, caste and alienation. Case studies of handloom weavers, VRS workers and the temperance movement give this study empirical weight.
Since most scholarly works on social exclusion are based on Western notions of 'deprivation' and 'exclusion', this work's unique focus on India lends the reader a context-specific understanding of the subject.
The book analyses the role of the socially marginalized and excluded groups in India since the onset of liberalization…[The author] points out the gap in social reforms that have impacted different socio-economic categories and as a result have further subjected them to deprivation…Various tables and statistics have been given to make the reader understand the topic deeply. The jargon free language helps the reader understand the Indian society in a much more holistic way. (The Times of India)
