Description

This volume presents an insightful analysis of the Hindu and Muslim identities in the colonial and post-colonial periods specially focusing on the rise of separatist nationalism.

Drawing on historical research, recent scholarly studies and his own field work Peter van der Veer describes and analyzes the construction of Hindu and Muslim identities in the colonial and post-colonial periods. His analysis ranges across a variety of topics, including cow protection societies and Sufi tombs, purdah and the political appropriation of the images of the female body, Salman Rushdie and the role of the novel in nationalism, Mahatma Gandhi and Swami Vivekananda, the Khalsa movement among Sikhs, nationalistic archaeology and the televised Ramayana.
