About this product
- DescriptionIn March 1998, India broke a quarter-century's silence when it detonated a series of nuclear devices in the Rajasthan desert. Having anunced it possessed the credentials for membership in the nuclear club in 1974, India quickly disavowed any desire to join, pledging t to develop its capability further. The Pokhran explosions revealed that promise to have been broken. The principal beneficiary of its breaking was a right-wing government seeking to shore up its shaky base with commitment to the Hindu bomb. While most in the West were taken unawares by this sudden bellicosity in the land of Gandhi, more scrupulous observers on the Indian scene insisted it had a clear history. In this, his first book since the hotly debated In Theory, Aijaz Ahmad untangles many of the intertwined threads of historical and political traditions in a still-too-poorly-understood region of the world.
- Author BiographyAijaz Ahmad is Professorial Fellow at the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library in New Delhi, India, and Professor of Political Science at York University in Ontario, Canada. He is the author of In Theory; Classes, Nations, Literatures, also from Verso.
