David E Ludden

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    "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." "This is a significant read for historians, political scientists, and students and scholars interested in the role of politics, religion, and nationalism in South Asia."--BOOK JACKET
