The experiences of the global south have revealed that the growth-driven
modernization projects have left in their wake a trail of
marginalization, dispossession, disempowerment, and displacement of a
vast section of population. How is a growth process that leads to
exclusion legitimized, and how are the citizen/subjects governed through
organized practices? How do the excluded majority reproduce the economic
and social conditions of their existence? How can we critically evaluate
the process of development through accumulation-oriented growth? And,
what are the prospects, if any, of alternative forms of development
beyond accumulation? These questions will be examined in the context of
two of the fastest growing economies of the world- China and India.
