'Civic Community' and Its Margins

School Teachers in Rural West Bengal

Analysing India's democracy demands a move beyond a study of social capital in the civic community. It calls for a focus on how the civic community seeks to 'assimilate' the political society in response to the historical separation between the two and how political society in turn tries to make use of institutions of civic community to serve its distinctly different interests. This study ventures to examine the margins of India's civic community in West Bengal - village school teachers in Purulia and Bardhaman - in relation to the classes and segments of rural society.
