      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description
    A major new collection of essays by Ramachandra Guha, Democrats and Dissenters is a work of rigorous scholarship on topics of compelling contemporary interest, written with elegance and wit. The book covers a wide range of themes: from the varying national projects of India's neighbours to political debates within India itself, from the responsibilities of writers to the complex relationship between democracy and violence. It has essays critically assessing the work of Amartya Sen and Eric Hobsbawm, essays on the tragic predicament of tribals in India - who are, as Guha demonstrates, far worse off than Dalits or Muslims, yet get a fraction of the attention - and on the peculiar absence of a tradition of conservative intellectuals in India. Each essay takes up an important topic or an influential intellectual, as a window to explore major political and cultural debates in India and the world. Democrats and Dissenters is a book that is certain to be widely read, and even more widely discussed.

    Very Good

    The book would be much better to read if you take prior note of the point that Guha is a die hard Congress supporter.
    One just needs to apply his critique in context of all parties and governments which he has generally directed towards BJP.
    But ofcourse he is a great writer and this book is another example of that.

    Wonderful

    Ramachandra Guhu is undoubtedly the most prolific writer of our times, when it comes down to the subject of Modern India or even Modern Asia. If not for Guha, there probably isn't any history of post independent India

    Guha : Readers' Writer

    As usual, nice packaging and prompt delivery by Flipkart.

    The Book
    Have not read the book yet. As a regular reader of Guha - columns in different dailies and magazines and all of his books - this is going to be my next pick for reading for sure. Even by the looks it is so graceful and elegant. With "Guha" string attached it is going to be a sure page-turner from cover to cover. Will be reviewed soon and separately.

    Value-for-money

    For a reader of contempory Indian literature, this book is like a Bollywood flick which has awesome first half but looses little sheen after interval(2nd half of the book) but makes splendid comeback towards the climax.
