9780674048959: Righteous Republic: The Political Foundations of Modern India

What India's founders derived from Western political traditions as they struggled to free their country from colonial rule is widely understood. Less well-known is how India's own rich knowledge traditions of two and a half thousand years influenced these men as they set about constructing a nation in the wake of the Raj. In Righteous Republic, Ananya Vajpeyi furnishes this missing account, a ground-breaking assessment of modern Indian political thought. Taking five of the most important founding figures--Mohandas Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Abanindranath Tagore, Jawaharlal Nehru, and B. R. Ambedkar--Vajpeyi looks at how each of them turned to classical texts in order to fashion an original sense of Indian selfhood. The diverse sources in which these leaders and thinkers immersed themselves included Buddhist literature, the Bhagavad Gita, Sanskrit poetry, the edicts of Emperor Ashoka, and the artistic and architectural achievements of the Mughal Empire. India's founders went to these sources not to recuperate old philosophical frameworks but to invent new ones. In Righteous Republic, a portrait emerges of a group of innovative, synthetic, and cosmopolitan thinkers who succeeded in braiding together two Indian knowledge traditions, the one political and concerned with social questions, the other religious and oriented toward transcendence. Within their vast intellectual, aesthetic, and moral inheritance, the founders searched for different aspects of the self that would allow India to come into its own as a modern nation-state. The new republic they envisaged would embody both India's struggle for sovereignty and its quest for the self.

Descrizione libro Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England, 2012. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. 368 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. INDIA. What India's founders derived from Western political traditions as they struggled to free their country from colonial rule is widely understood. Less well-known is how India's own rich knowledge traditions of two and a half thousand years influenced these men as they set about constructing a nation in the wake of the Raj. In Righteous Republic, Ananya Vajpeyi furnishes this missing account, a ground-breaking assessment of modern Indian political thought. Taking five of the most important founding figuresÑMohandas Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Abanindranath Tagore, Jawaharlal Nehru, and B.R. AmbedkarÑVajpeyi looks at how each of them turned to classical texts in order to fashion an original sense of Indian selfhood. The diverse sources in which these leaders and thinkers immersed themselves included Buddhist literature, the Bhagavad Gita, Sanskrit poetry, the edicts of Emperor Ashoka, and the artistic and architectural achievements of the Mughal Empire. India's founders went to these sources not to recuperate old philosophical frameworks but to invent new ones.

The new republic they envisaged would embody both India's struggle for sovereignty and its quest for the self. Ananya Vajpeyi is Associate Fellow with the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, New Delhi. "Most historians credit liberal ideas from Britain, absorbed by the Western-oriented Indian elite, with giving birth to modern India. (The Congress Party of Gandhi and Nehru was founded at the suggestion of A.O. Hume, a British civil servant, in 1885.) Few are aware of the extent to which nationalist leaders turned to Indic texts to revive Indians' sense of collective selfhood, and how extensively these shaped their own political practice and the country's post-independence social compact."ÑSudha Koul, The Wall Street Journal "Ananya Vajpeyi's Righteous Republic: The Political Foundations of Modern India radically advances our understanding of political traditions in a major non-western country."ÑPankaj Mishra, The Guardian "Ananya Vajpeyi's Righteous Republic is quite simply the most important interpretation of the evolution of India's contemporary nationhood since Sunil Khilnani's The Idea of India, and a useful antidote to the revisionist Imperialism of rising British star-historians like Andrew Roberts and Niall FergusonÉ Fluently written, cogent in argument, studded with penetrating insights, telling aphorisms, with complete mastery of her material, consistently brilliant expression and exposition, this young philosopher-historian takes her definitive place as a commentator and synthesizer of the often varied and contradictory approaches to the idea of India."ÑMani Shankar Aiyar, Financial Express "Ananya Vajpeyi's Righteous Republic is a unique addition to the discourse around the themes of India's negotiation with its colonial past and its present political frameworkÉ Vajpeyi excels at what she does in the present volume, however, and the book is informed with high standards of intellectual rigour, analytical acuity andÑlast but certainly not the leastÑan eminently readable, nearly jargon-free prose."ÑSuparna Banerjee, The Hindu "Righteous Republic makes an important contribution to the existing literature and should be read by those who truly want to understand more about the past and present in Indian political thought. This carefully crafted and lucidly written book moves beyond exploring the contempo. book. Codice libro della libreria 84191X1
