Description
How does the Western world represent India? To what extent is knowledge of the people and institutions of the Indian subcontinent based on the West's own desires for world hegemony and fantasies about its rationality? In this controversial and widely praised book, Ronald Inden argues that the West's depictions of India as the civilization of caste, villages, spiritualism, and divine kings -- and as a land dominated by imagination rather than reason -- have deprived Indians of their capacity to rule their world, which has consequently been appropriated by those in the West who wish to dominate it.

First published in 1990, Imagining India is required reading in many university courses. It is now back in print with a new introduction.
