About the Book

Elusive Ideology: Religion and Socialism in Modern Indian Thought

An intellectual history of modern Indian thought, Elusive Ideology suggests that key thinkers juxtapose Western socialist themes with Indian religious themes so as to generate novel political agendas. In that context, Gandhian Socialism merits special attention, pivoting on two of Gandhi’s preoccupations: egalitarian rural communities and nonviolent transformational movements. It exerts substantial sway on Marxist-oriented thinkers initially skeptical of Gandhi.
