Demography and Democracy
Essays on Nationalism, Gender, and Ideology
A collection of recent essays and articles, Demography and Democracy is Himani Bannerji’s engagement with the nationalist currents that have become such crucial topics of discussion and debate in recent years. Topics covered include Hindu nationalism, Zionism, subaltern studies, the novels of Rabindranath Tagore, and issues of knowledge, ideology, and representation around the US invasion of Afghanistan. The essays are written from an anti-imperialist Marxist feminist standpoint and offer a bracing critique of contemporary ideologies.
