Description - A Biography of the Indian Nation, 1947-1997 by Ranabir Samaddar

A Biography of the Indian Nation, 1947-97 seeks to define what makes a nation a nation - referring to the nation of India. Most writings on Indian nationalism concentrate on the colonial period. Ranabir Samaddar, however, deals with the post-colonial phase, arguing that it is only with the assumption of state power that nationalism commences. The book examines: the beginning of the nation; attempts at rebellion; issues of caste and communalism and the nations attempt to tackle them India's elections; the theory of citizenship, taking into account both citizen and alien; the importance of public versus private space; war and peace in India.

Author Biography - Ranabir Samaddar

Ranabir Samaddar is the Director of the Calcutta Research Group, Kolkata, and belongs to the school of critical thinking. He has worked extensively on issues of justice and rights in the context of conflicts in South Asia. Samaddar's particular researches have spread over a wide area comprising migration and refugee studies, the theory and practices of dialogue, nationalism and postcolonial statehood in South Asia, and new regimes of technological restructuring and labour control. His recent political writings The Emergence of the Political Subject (2009) and The Nation Form (2012) have signalled a new turn in critical postcolonial thinking and have challenged some of the prevailing accounts of the birth of nationalism and the nation state.
