    This history of modern India reveals the extent to which, 60 years after independence, the world's most populous democracy has drawn together the threads of its diversity and history to develop 'its own peculiar form of modernity'. Maria Misra's analysis takes a new approach to Indian history, emphasizing the persistent influence of hierarchical assumptions which can help to explain some of the country's more bizarre political partnerships.
