Nationalism is among the most influential ideas that has shaped the 'Metamorphoses of the Political' in the long twentieth century. This book focuses on exclusivist Indian nationalism and identifies its distinction from inclusivist nationalism. It highlights shifts in 'another Indian nationalism' over the last two centuries as the geopolitical context has transitioned from the Pax Britannica to the Pax Americana and its war on terror. The books braids the following three strands together: first, a majoritarian nationalist ideology called Hindutva; second, the making of popular history as a precolonial epic is highlighted, depicting the defeat of the last Hindu Emperor by a conquering Muslim Sultan purportedly leading to eight centuries of Hindu enslavement and third, the 'reconversion' of a community by the Visva Hindu Parishad with consequences for Lived Hinduism and Indic civilisation with its complex identities.

Excerpt from Indian Nationalism: Its Origin, History, and Ideals Bear this in mind, - to-day, even those in India who contend most strongly against Nationalism are conditional Home Rulers. They no longer pretend that the peoples Of India can or should be held in leading-strings for ever. The doctrine Of perpetual tutelage lives only a secret life in the prejudices of men. It is no longer pro pounded publicly or defended publicly, - at least, not in India. Not with bated breath, then, do the peoples Of India now speak to their compatriots in the Empire. They are no longer petitioners to a Government, - they are applicants to their peers. Within them also the thoughts which have made the greatness Of England, and have defined for the Empire a Splendid possibility, have become a quickening energy and an uplifting hope. What shall be the Eastern form Of England's great tradition A bureaucracy ruling restive millions That could not be permanent: while it lasted it would impoverish England's own thoughts. Rather would one hope to see the freedom which has made England's manhood so strong become an equal strength in the East. DO not let it be thought that when Indians speak of Freedom they are babbling of some foreign thing which can never become native.

This collection explores how South Asian migrations in modern history have shaped key aspects of globalization since the 1830s. Including original research from colonial India, Fiji, Mexico, South Africa, North America and the Middle East, the essays explore indentured labour and its legacies, law as a site of regulation and historical biography. Including recent scholarship on the legacy of issues such as consent, sovereignty and skilled/unskilled labour distinctions from the history of indentured labour migrations, this volume brings together a range of historical changes that can only be understood by studying South Asian migrants within a globalized world system. Centering south Asian migrations as a site of analysis in global history, the contributors offer a lens into the ongoing regulation of labourers after the abolition of slavery that intersect with histories in the Global North and Global South. The use of historical biography showcases experiences from below, and showcases a world history outside empire and nation.
