The 1930s to 1950s witnessed the rise and dominance of a political
culture across much of North India which combined unprecedented
levels of mobilization and organization with an effective
de-politicization of politics. On the one hand obsessed with world
events, people also came to understand politics as a question of
personal morality and achievement. In other words, politics was
about expressing the self in new ways and about finding and
securing an imaginary home in a fast-moving and often terrifying
universe. The scope and arguments of this book make an innovative
contribution to the historiography of modern South Asia, by
focusing on the middle-class milieu which was the epicentre of this
new political culture.
