This collection of seminal essays provides a useful and stimulating introduction to the debates surrounding identity-politics in modern India. Through the selected articles, each of which discusses different aspects of the central debate, the volume stresses the need to stay away from an 'essentialist' definition of identity, a view particularly significant in India today; and it concludes that communal identity, though imagined and constructed, is nevertheless not unreal.
