William Gould explores what is arguably one of the most important and controversial themes in twentieth-century Indian history and politics: the nature of Hindu nationalism as an ideology and political language. Using an array of historical sources, he analyzes how it affected the secularist Congress in Uttar Pradesh on the eve of Independence, and how these ideologies fostered tensions between Hindus and Muslims, and the subsequent development of communal violence. This book is intended for students of colonial India as well as those interested in contemporary Indian politics.

About the Author:

William Gould is a Lecturer in the Department of History at the University of Leeds.

Review:

"...provocative and important..."
-American Historical Review

"An important and long-overdue contribution to twentieth-century South Asian political history."
-Spencer Austin Leonard, University of Chicago

"With extreme care, Gould marshals a substantial amount of evidence to demonstrate that the Indian National Congress in the United Provinces...widely employed the languages of Hindu Nationalism in the 1930s and thereby established the grounds for Muslim estrangement from the Congress."
-Brian K. Pennington, Maryville College, Religious Studies Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English. Brand new Book. In this book William Gould explores what is arguably one of the most important and controversial themes in twentieth-century Indian history and politics: the nature of Hindu nationalism as an ideology and political language. Rather than concentrating on the main institutions of the Hindu Right in India as other studies have done, the author uses a variety of historical sources to analyse how Hindu nationalism affected the supposedly secularist Congress in the key state of Uttar Pradesh. In this way, the author offers an alternative assessment of how these languages and ideologies transformed the relationship between Congress and north Indian Muslims. The book makes a major contribution to historical analyses of the critical last two decades before Partition and Independence in 1947, which will be of value to scholars interested in historical and contemporary Hindu nationalism, and to students researching the final stages of colonial power in India.
