Communalism and Nationalism in Colonial India

Communalism and Nationalism in Colonial India THE emergence of communal identities has been a subject of frequent and intense debate in India. In this context, Gyanendra Pandey's The Construction of Communalism in North India is a very welcome publication. The author skilfully demonstrates how communalism as we know it in India is a modern phenomenon, coeval with nationalism, and an outcome of the colonial age. The manner in which Hindu and Muslim identities were sharpened with respect to each other over the past two centuries are rather nicely delineated.
