Samaddar, Ranabir

The Nation form: essays on Indian nationalism - New Delhi Sage Publications 2012 - xxi, 259 p.

Most writings on the theme of the nation confine themselves to discussions of ideology and thoughts on nationalism, leaving out the question of the form of the nation. This selection of writings by Ranabir Samaddar fills in that void and presents a whole range of dimensions, perspectives, and controversies of the last two decades on the question of the nation in India. It looks at the form of the Indian nation in terms of contests, contradictions, classes, and nationalist strategies of inclusion and exclusion, thereby addressing two significant issues in view of the nation form its relation with democracy and the problem of governing the nation.
