Description

These essays focus on the role of fashionable critiques and smug dismissals of secularism and modernity, and the unqualified defense of so-called indigenous traditions in providing intellectual support for the discourse of Hindutva.

REVIEW

Zaheer Baber’s stern indictment of antisecular intellectuals should promote a revival of genuine Indian Sociology rather than their unimaginative Indology. Baber takes T N Madan, Ashis Nandy and Veena Das to task, he offers us a theory of communalism, and he advises us to consider a comparative race famework for the oppressions meted out to the socially suppressed within India: all this in a very short, readable and insightful book.
-Vijay Prashad
