Hindutva Politics in India
Hindutva Politics in India
Description
From the Jacket

This book is a comprehensive analysis of the Bharatiya Janata Party as the major architect of the Hindutva politics and ideology since its founding in 1980.

The BJP represents two important political legacies; first the erstwhile Bharatiya Jana Sangh which was founded by S. P. Mookerjee with the support and organizational cadres of the Rashtriya Sayamsevak Sangh, and second of the emergency resistance movement. This political biography of BJP depicts the various phases of organizational and ideological growth of the party.

Drawing on substantial collection and analysis of party's documents, Geeta Puri presents a thorough and gripping account of the Vajpayee-led BJP's mainstream- centrist thrusts and the Advani-led party's Hindutva campaigns. The book follows BJP through its social and geographical expansion, political consolidation and electoral victories within the broad parameters of Hindutva politics. Geeta Puri examines the BJP's existential dichotomy between identity and power and the consequent ideological self-betrayal represented by backburner politics. The book analyses the BJP's inspirational, organizational and ideological relationship with the RSS and the resulting perpetual identity crisis of the party.

Geeta Puri underscores the negative implications of the RSS back-seat driving of the BJP for Indian democracy and politics, and makes a strong case for the RSS to transform itself into a full-fledged political party. Assessing the BJP's demoralizing debacle in the elections-2004, this book offers a democratic critique of the Hindutva politics and considerably contributes to our understanding of the evolution of BJP which is still struggling with self- definition.

Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
Donald, USA
Thank you for providing such an excellent service i recently ordered a number of books on the life and teachings of Sri Chaitanya and Sri Nityananda and Their associates, by various authors. it's very nice to find such a wide variety of Vaishnava literatures by various authors, all together on this one site, and you have made the selection and payment for the items you are selling, very easy. Shipping is included in the cost of the items - great arrangement, plus I received my order very quickly Thank you!
