About this item

This volume is a theoretico-empirical study of nations and nationalism on a global scale. It enquires if the idea of the nation, by its own logic, is feasible and whether India fulfils the requirement of nationhood with a reasonable prospect of survival. The monograph engages with the theories of nation and nationalism and examines if they are relevant and tenable in contemporary times. It looks at the way these ideas have acted out in the Indian nation while attempting to map their future trajectory. It also asks: how do the two fundamental challenges to the idea of nation — ethnicity and class — fare in the era of globalisation; and further, how does India, a new state in an ancient society, reconceptualise the paradigm of this debate?

The book will be of great interest to scholars and students of political science, political theory, history, political philosophy, South Asian studies as well as informed general readers.
