This academic edited volume aims to bring together the different perspectives on power, politics, and their impact on people. The world of the marginalised, oppressed, and voiceless is constantly under pressure from dominating power structures that construct and exploit ideologies based on their desires for the continuous exercise of authority, power, and wealth. The state’s imposed supremacy through its ideological and repressive apparatuses, the tactical implementation of political agendas, the patriarchal exhibition of masculinity, cultural predominance, religious fundamentalism, the politics of caste oppression and discrimination, racial and ethnic intolerance, imperial invasion and intrusion, corporate capitalism, exploitation and privileged access to hierarchical elite levels, and the manifestation of interpersonal, institutional, and internalised levels of oppression that occur with it, highlights the expression of the use of power as a coercive tool against the individuality and social co-existence of people. Recent global issues of war, invasion, forced displacement and migration, casteism, regional and international border conflicts, censorship and bans, religious intolerance, violence, war, and terrorism, all point to the predictable or unanticipated outcome of creating uncertainty, crisis, and anxiety about the meaning of life. A large group of people, directly or indirectly, are affected by the consequences of the conflicts and complexities initiated by minorities and the resultant adverse effect on the overall peace, freedom, and decision-making of respective governments.
