Editorial Reviews

Review

"...provocative and important..."
-American Historical Review

"An important and long-overdue contribution to twentieth-century South Asian political history."
-Spencer Austin Leonard, University of Chicago

"With extreme care, Gould marshals a substantial amount of evidence to demonstrate that the Indian National Congress in the United Provinces...widely employed the languages of Hindu Nationalism in the 1930s and thereby established the grounds for Muslim estrangement from the Congress."
-Brian K. Pennington, Maryville College, Religious Studies Review

Book Description

William Gould explores what is arguably one of the most important and controversial themes in twentieth-century Indian history and politics: the nature of Hindu nationalism as an ideology and political language. Using an array of historical sources, he analyses how Hindu nationalism affected the secularist Congress in Uttar Pradesh on the eve of Independence, and how these ideologies fostered tensions between Hindus and Muslims, and the subsequent development of communal violence. This an important and challenging book, for students of colonial India and for those interested in contemporary Indian politics.
