Reinventing India examines the history of modern India and its contemporary transformation, proving a lucid and eminently readable account of the changes which are shaking India today.

Part I of the book describes India’s transformation under colonial rule, and the ideas and social forces which underlay the deliberations of the Constituent Assembly which was convened in 1946 to consider the shaping of the postcolonial state. Part II narrates the story of the making and unmaking of this modern India in the period from 1950 to the present day, paying attention to both economic and political developments, and engaging with the interpretations of India’s recent history by such key writers as Francine Frankel, Sudipta Kaviraj and Partha Chatterjee. Part III has chapters on the dialectrics of economic reform, religion and the politics of Hindu nationalism, and popular democracy. These chapters articulate a distinct position on the state and society in India at the beginning of the new century, and they allow the authors to engage with some of the key debates which concern public intellectuals in contemporary India. - Source: Powell's Books
