Metamorphoses of the Political: Multidisciplinary Approaches
Cambridge University Press

This series seeks to publish new books that both expand and de-centre current perspectives on politics and the ‘political’ in the contemporary world. It examines, from a wide array of disciplinary and methodological approaches, how the ‘political’ has been conceptualized, articulated and transformed in specific arenas of contestation during the ‘long twentieth century’. Though primarily located in India and the Global South, the series seeks to interrogate and contribute to wider debates about global processes and politics. It is in this sense that the series is imagined as one that is regionally focused but globally engaged, providing a context for interrogations of universalized theories of self, society and politics.
