Hindu Nationalism and Indian Politics: with an Introduction by Pratap Bhanu Mehta
Hindu Nationalism and Indian Politics: with an Introduction by Pratap Bhanu Mehta
Description
From the Jacket:

The rise and growth of Hindu nationalism is the salient feature of contemporary Indian politics. This omnibus brings together the best scholarship on Hindu nationalism, its organizational forms, political strategies, ideological claims, social base, and its relationship to other variants of nationalism. Meticulously researched and lucidly written, each of the three books included here, provides a wealth of empirical material and theoretical insights on this phenomenon.

Pratap Bhanu Mehta's thought-provoking introduction, especially written for this volume, examines the idea of Hindu nationalism and situates the three books in the present context.

While complementing each other, the volumes offer a powerful and persuasive analysis of the politics of Hindutva and its prospects. John Zavos' The Emergence of Hindu Nationalism in India traces its origins in the early part of the twentieth century, and enumerates the different political idioms and organizational strategies it employed. Thomas Blom Hansen's The Saffron Wave places it in the modern context and reflects on the relationship between Hindu nationalism and other forms of nationalism and democracy. Christophe Jaffrelot and Thomas Blom Hansen in The BJP and the Compulsions of Politics in India bring together scholarly studies on the BJP's political strategies in the context of electoral politics. The book analyses the party's political trajectories at the regional as well as the national level and the specific challenges it faces. At a time when the political resilience of Hindu nationalism is again in focus, these works will engage both the scholar and the general reader. This omnibus is a unique resource for students of modern history and politics, as also for policy-makers, analysts, and journalists.

About the Author:

John Zavos s Lecturer in South Asian Studies, University of Manchester, UK. Thomas Blom Hansen is Reader in Anthropology at the University of Edinburgh, UK. Christophe Jaffrelot is Director, CERI, Paris. Pratap Bhanu Mehta is Visiting Professor of Government at Harvard University.

Excerpts From Reviews:

'This Omnibus edition of three outstanding studies by leading scholars of Indian politics provides a timely but enduring contribution to scholarship about the place of Hindu nationalist politics in India's public life.' - Llod I. Rudolph and Susanne Hoeber Rudolph, University of Chicago.

'Hindu nationalism is undeniably a formidable force in Indian politics today. Its true character and futer trajectory remain mired in controversy and dispute. A compendium of three remarkable books, this omnibus, more than any single text, allows one to make sense of Hindu nationalist ideology and politics. Not only are some of the best scholars of Hindu nationalism presented here, but we also have a new, politically insightful and intellectually fascinating introduction.' - Ashutosh Varshnay, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

'This omnibus usefully brings, between a single pair of covers, some of the best scholarship on the ideology and politics of Hindu nationalism.' - Niraja Gopal Jayal, Jawaharlal Nehru University

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
