This book reformulates the meaning of nationalism in India by focusing on Dalit imagination and politics during the nationalist movement. Dalits, as marginalized subjects, envisioned themselves as equal citizens and demanded justice, equality, and dignity as preconditions for independence. By illuminating the overlooked participation of Dalits in the freedom struggle, the book also attempts to provide a dialogic interface between Dalit pasts and the intellectual and political debates in contemporary India. PRINTED PAGES: 264.
