'A courageous attempt to reset sights ... he has ably contested anti-secularist and subalternist indigenises.' --Romila Thapar

'No country in the world has been the subject of such mystification as India, as much from within the country as from without. At once a contribution to the campaign against racism as an intervention in theories of politics and culture, Achin Vanaik's study is a powerful counter to essentialising adeologies. It provides a lucidly rational corrective to the layers of anti-modernism under which the subcontinent has too long been submerged.' --Fred Halliday

Achin Vanaik is a writer and social activist, a former professor at the University of Delhi and Delhi-based Fellow of the Transnational Institute, Amsterdam.
