Overview

Change can be seen vividly in the larger political economy and its reflections in the spheres of resistance and mobilisation. Located within the context of 'weakening' of Left Politics not only in electoral terms (except Nepal) but also organisational capability in whole of South Asia this volume brings in diverse discourses to explore need for reframing the left agenda. Some chapters give us a chronology of how the left politics has evolved while others are prompting questions concerning questions of gender and sexuality, unionism and mass mobilisation in the new political contexts. This is not a conclusive volume posing questions and giving solutions for the left politics rather it is an effort to provoke a debate regarding possible interventions within the sphere of left politics.
