The Hindu Counterrevolution: The Violent Recreation of an Imagined Past

Walden Bello traces the rise of the present-day Hindu nationalist movement from its marginal origins at the time of Indian independence to its formidable present domination of the political landscape.

The author traces the roots and roles of the torch bearers of the Hindutva movement — a political party, a vanguard organuzation, and a militant mass movement — which have drastically changed from the political mechanisms and ideals of post-Independence India and the erstwhile dominant party, Congress.

This study of Hindu nationalism is part of a larger study that includes investigations of counterrevolutionary movements in Indonesia, Chile, Thailand Philippines, Fascist Italy, contemporary Europe and the United States, which are brought together in the volume titled, State and Counterrevolution: Explorations into the Global Rise of the Right.
