This chapter isolates several particulars of an American sociology and a European history of senility, particulars that tell a specific story about conjunctures and debates in India. It uses the tabloids as a shorthand for raising questions about American class consciousness and any attempt to articulate a cultural study in the United States, even of the potted comparative sort that expatriate anthropologists implicitly engage in. It also uses tabloids, metaphorically, as a sign of the effects of a style of anthropological and social reasoning still prevalent in South Asian studies.

Keywords:   American sociology, European history, senility, India, anthropological text, tabloids
