Back cover copy

This thoughtful, balanced, and highly readable work provides a masterful sweep of the long and variegated history of India and its current struggle for modernity. Basing his narrative line on the socioreligious tradition of India, the author helps the reader understand how India's past lives on into the present and how the complex interaction among the forces of imperialism, tradition, and modernity have complicated the problems of state and nation building in contemporary India.
