Making India Hindu: Religion, Community, and the Politics of Democracy in India
Making India Hindu: Religion, Community, and the Politics of Democracy in India
Description
About the Book:

The rise of Hindu nationalism in India has been an integral feature of political developments and cultural change over the last few decades. Accomplished by electoral means as well as by aggressive politics and vast media influence, the ascendancy of Hindutva has been the focus of serious attention in academic debates.

Written in the aftermath of the Babri Masjid demolition, Making India Hindu brings together the work of eminent scholars to provide an interdisciplinary perspective on communalism in India.

With an in-depth Introduction and a new Preface, these essays show how Hindutva's spreading and deepening influence has drawn sustenance from cultural trends that permeate modern Indian history and from multifarious media that propagate Hindutva.

While the first edition helped explain the rise of Hindutva across the world in the 1980s, the second edition, updated to the 2004 elections, highlights the direct and indirect operations of Hindutva within India's political mainstream.

An incisive analysis of current events by Ludden and a thoroughly revised bibliography make the second edition of this classic a significant read for historians, political scientists, and students and scholars interested in the role of politics, religion, and nationalism in South Asia.

About the Author:

David Ludden is Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania.

Excerpts from Reviews:

'The most encouraging feature of this book is the willingness of so many established scholars to confront the inescapable mystery of the phenomenon of communalism. ...The richness of the resultant fare is, for once, commensurate with the legitimately baffling complexity of the phenomenon.'

- Alok Rai, The Book Review

'....seeks to provide a window on the world of conflict that developed inside nationalism around the globe in the 1980s...'

- Harsh Sethi, The Hindu

'....it presents an array of different opinions and enables the problem to be seen from different perspectives and through different intellectual lenses.'

- H Y Sharada Prasad, Biblio

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
