This volume investigates the nature of nationalism and modernization embraced by the nineteenth and twentieth-century religious reform movements and their relationship with contemporary Hindutva. The essays critically analyse the influence of key personalities—Vivekananda, Aurobindo, and Dayanand Saraswati—on the emergence of ideas that later came to be known as Hindutva. This book will interest students, scholars, political analysts, sociologists, historians, and the informed non-specialist reader of South Asian religion, culture, and politics. View more info
