Chinnaiah Jangam has published an important new book on the history of Dalits in India with Oxford University Press. This book reformulates the meaning of nationalism in India by focusing on Dalit imagination and politics during the nationalist movement. It provides a dialogic interface between Dalit pasts and the intellectual and political debates in contemporary India.
