Editorial Reviews

New York Review of Books

The most exhaustive book on Hindu nationalism.... A scholarly tour de force.

Walter Andersen
This is the most systematic study I have seen on the topic of Hindu nationalism, a movement that has grown rapidly over the past decade and now poses a challenge to India's secular government. . . . For the expert on South Asia, this book is an absolute must.
New York Review of Books
The most exhaustive book on Hindu nationalism. . . . A scholarly tour de force.
Booknews
Offers a detailed account of the Hindu nationalist movement in India since the 1920s, exploring how rapid changes in the political, social, and economic climate have paved the way for the growth of the primary arm of Hindu nationalism, a paramilitary-style group known as the RSS, together with its political offshoots. Looks at party building at the local level, and argues that the ideology of the movement has less to do with Hindu philosophy than with ethnic nationalism.
