1 Taylor C. Sherman, William Gould & Sarah Ansari (Eds)
From Subjects to Citizens: Society and the Everyday State in India and Pakistan 1947-1970
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 1107064279 / 9781107064270; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book explores the shift from colonial rule to independence in India and Pakistan with the aim of unravelling the explicit meaning and relevance of ‘independence’ for the new citizens of India and Pakistan during the two decades post 1947. While the study of postcolonial South Asia has blossomed in recent years this volume addresses a number of imbalances in this dynamic and highly popular field. Firstly the histories of India and Pakistan after 1947 have been conceived separately with many scholars assuming that the two states developed along divergent paths after independence. Thus the dominant historical paradigm has been to examine either India or Pakistan in relative isolation from one another. Viewing the two states in the same frame not only allows the contributors of this volume to explore common themes but also facilitates an exploration of the powerful continuities between the pre- and post-independence periods.Printed Pages:256. 101427

2 William Gould
Hindu Nationalism and the Language of Politics in Late Colonial India
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 8175962518 / 9788175962514; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 
William Gould explores what is arguably one of the most important and controversial themes in twentieth-century Indian history and politics: the nature of Hindu nationalism as an ideology and political language. Rather than concentrating on the main institutions of the Hindu Right in India as other studies have done, the author uses a variety of historical sources to analyse how Hindu nationalism affected the supposedly secularist Congress in the key state of Uttar Pradesh. In this way, the author offers an alternative assessment of how these languages and ideologies transformed the relationship between Congress and north Indian Muslims. The book makes a major contribution to historical analyses of the critical last two decades before Partition and Independence in 1947, which will be of value to scholars interested in historical and contemporary Hindu nationalism, and to students researching the final stages of colonial power in India. Contents 1. Introduction 2. Congress and the Hindu nation: symbols, rhetoric and action 3. Muslims, mass movements and untouchable uplift 4. The Aryan Congress: history, youth and the ‘Hindu Race’ 5. Congress radicals and Hindu militancy 6. Congress ‘Raj’, riots and Muslim mass contacts 7. Congress, Pakistan and volunteer militarism Conclusion. Printed Pages: 320. 032864
