What is pseudo-nationalism?

An interesting compilation of essays on different connotation of Nationalism by some of the finest thinkers and writers of our time has been brought out by Aleph Book Company.

With the brilliant articles of Romila Thapar, A. G. Noorani and Sadanand Menon, the book deals with different aspect of Nationalism as what is true nationalism? What is pseudo-nationalism? What is anti-national? What is patriotism? Is the shouting of nationalist slogans important to prove one’s patriotism? Why is Bharat Mata ki Jai so important to the right wing? Why does the law of sedition continue to exist on the statute book of an independent country? Who should the sedition law be used against? Why is cultural freedom important to a nation? What sort of India do we want? What sort of Indians do we want to be? What sort of country do we want to leave behind for future generations?

These questions all involve one of the most fundamental ideas of India—the nationalism we inherited at birth. It is also one of the most hotly contested ideas of the twenty-first century. In this book, writers provide calm, measured insights into the origins, nature, practice and future of Indian nationalism. The book will make an interesting reading for those who keep close watch on India’s socio political scenario.
