Laid out as a series of three inter-related conversations, this volume investigates the diverse discourses of identity politics that relate the nationalist movement to current concerns and debates. Focusing upon the peripheries of modern India-states of Assam and Jammu and Kashmir-the first section explores local and regional nationalisms at play at marginalized spaces. It highlights their relationship with the homogenizing nationalism of the centre. The next examines literary production to delineate the plurality of narrative and consciousness. The final part explores the works of Mohammed Iqbal and Mohandas Gandhi while the conclusion provides a post-history of communalism. Overall, the volume deals with the multiplicity of historical experiences both within and without the discourse of nationalism. This book will interest scholars and students of modern Indian history, politics, and sociology, particularly those concerned with identity politics and nationalism.
