Description : In a sensitive and compelling account of the lives of those at the very bottom of Indian society, Oliver Mendelsohn and Marika Vicziany explore the construction of the Untouchables as a social and political category, the historical background which led to such a definition, and their position in India today. The authors argue that, despite efforts to ameliorate their condition on the part of the state, a considerable edifice of discrimination persists on the basis of a tradition of ritual subordination. Even now, therefore, it still makes sense to categorise these people as 'Untouchables'. The book promises to make a major contribution to the social and economic debates on poverty, while its wide-ranging perspectives will ensure an interdisciplinary readership from historians of South Asia, to students of politics, economics, religion and sociology.
Description : The name Eliot Ness carries with it images of Chicago gangland speakeasies and shootouts with some of the nation's most notorious criminals. Ness has been transformed into a legendary figure by the films and television programs that depicted the war he and his Untouchables waged against the mobsters of Prohibition-era Chicago. Yet the real Ness is an enigma and the actual men who worked with him are little known. This analysis of Ness the person and Ness the myth brings together careful historical analysis and descriptive critiques of the many films and television programs devoted to interpreting his life and war with Al Capone. Reasons for the popularity of Eliot Ness and his mythic importance are also explored. Photographs, bibliography, and an index are included.

Description : A devastating new exposé from the bestselling authors of The Bankers and Wasters. In March 2011, the Irish people elected a new government. But how much had really changed? In The Untouchables, Shane Ross and Nick Webb shine a light into dark corners of official Ireland to show that the blame for running the country into the ground goes well beyond Fianna Fáil, and that a dismaying number of the people who should share the blame are still in situ: in the civil service, on the boards of the leading companies, and in the banks, law firms, and consultancies that carry so much influence in deciding who wins and who loses. They name names, trace connections, and show how the untouchables managed to do so much damage, how they got away with it, and how so many of them are still in positions of power and influence in Ireland. 'Fascinating ... required reading for anyone interested in how crony capitalism and power work in practice in Ireland' Irish Times 'The Untouchables is hard to put down. Read it and seethe.' Irish Independent Shane Ross is an independent TD for Dublin South, and columnist in the Sunday Independent. Nick Webb is business editor of the Sunday Independent. They are the authors of Wasters, 2010's top-selling Irish current affairs title.

Hence, the Dalit literature is not a simple literature, it is associated with a movement to bring about a change in the society by working personally to realize the basic facts of the life, but Brahmans are only the philosophers of their literature, working for their personal benefit not for others.
