Title : Beyond Consumption: India`s New Middle Class in the Neo-Liberal Times
Author : Manish K Jha and Pushpendra (eds.)

ISBN : 9781032250137
Pages : 290 p.

This book analyses India’s middle class by recognising the diversity within the class, the people, their practices, and the production of spaces.
It explores the economic and social lives of the new middle class, expanding the areas of inquiry beyond consumption in post-liberalisation India and its intersectionalities with gender, caste, religion, migration, and other socioeconomic markers in various cities across the country. The book interrogates the meanings and perceptions of social mobility, growth, consumerism, technology, social identity, and development and examines how they can be emancipatory or subjugating in different contexts. It engages with the new entrants in the middle class, particularly from the marginalised sections, their struggles, insecurities, anxieties, agency, and experiences. The personal, emotive, and psychic dimensions of social mobility have been dealt with in the larger context of socioeconomic settings. The book crosses disciplinary and spatial boundaries and uses a variety of methodologies to provide perspectives on several unexplored or underexplored areas of India’s new middle class.
This book will be of interest to scholars and researchers of sociology, economics, development studies, public policy, social work, and South Asian studies.
