A Genealogy of Hindu Identity

As part of the last volume of a quartet of books relating to a project titled, A genealogy of Hindu Identity, my work at the IWM will look at questions of violence and non-violence through the prism of the Gandhian intervention in Indian thought. In doing so, it interrogates the conceptual and theoretical inadequacies in comprehending violence and its representation.
