“A brilliantly original study of the relation between philosophical ideas and political practice, this book by Prathama Banerjee explores how key ideas drawn from Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic, and Western traditions have shaped the field of the political in India. While analyzing the complex and often ambiguous relations of the political with religion, economy, literature, theater, and art, she gives us many surprisingly new insights into such canonical thinkers as Bankim, Aurobindo, Gandhi, Iqbal, and Ambedkar.” — Partha Chatterjee, Professor of Anthropology, Columbia University
