This book is a brilliant historicisation and scathing critique of many of the dominant concepts by which Indians generally, and north Indian Hindus more specifically, think and live today. Historians, sociologists, political scientists and serious readers who wish to understand how the immediate past has shaped India's life will value this incisive work of a major historian.

About the Author:

Tanika Sarkar is Professor at the Centre for Historical Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University. She is editor (with Sumit Sarkar) of Women and Social Reform in Modern India (IUP, 2008) and editor (with Urvashi Butalia) of Women and Right-Wing Movements.

Review:

"An important book that recasts existing debates on nationalism... will be of interest to a wide range of scholars of colonialism and nationalism." —Journal of Asian Studies

(Journal of Asian Studies)

"A definitive and incisive piece of research." —Interventions

(Interventions)

"Tanika Sarkar uses an innovative brush to depict the development of Hindu cultural nationalism in 19-century India.... She brilliantly illuminates three classic incidents... which then become pivot points in her essays, enabling the reader to go beyond an ordinary understanding of social reality, particularly gender identity, in late 19th-century Bengal." —Asian Affairs

(Asian Affairs)

"Brought together, these essays on Hindu cultural nationalism speak to each other... an important contribution." —Journal of Anthropological Theory

(Journal of Anthropological Theory)

"Contribute[s] to an important set of scholarly debates over the relationship between imperialism, patriarchy, and nationalism in late 19th-century colonial India." —H-Net

(H-Net)

"First-rate... pathbreaking historical research... [combined with] a vigorous critique of the theoretical turns that South Asian Studies have recently taken under the influence of Subaltern Studies and postcolonial criticism. This is no dry-as-dust history." —Dipesh Chakrabarty, University of Chicago

(Dipesh Chakrabarty, University of Chicago)
