Description

this is a sociological interpretation of modern Indian history. It is also a hard-hitting critique of nationalist historiography as well as the Indian national movement.

The author evaluates anti-caste, non-Brahmin and other socio-religious movements in a new light. He sees the national movement in the context of a multiplicity of political awakenings , and concludes that internal cleavages within Indian society, rather than the obvious external contradiction between Indians and the British, were responsible for the outcome of the nationalist movement and the failure of the nation to emerge.

Quite stunning... an important intervention into historical understanding.

A significant, new, interpretative study of Indian nationalism.

A synthesis - a radical and illuminating one at that - of recent scholarship.
