Chris Ogden on Hindu nationalism and Indian security policy
my review of Chris Ogden's recent book on Hindu nationalism an Indian security policy. The subject is under-researched though I know of at least two PhD's theses underway (including one of my students) on related issues and at least one other book also on a related topic in the works by a colleague in an Australian university. Though I am somewhat critical of the manner in Ogden has used some of the concepts in his study, I do think that there needs to be more work on the substantive aspects of Indian foreign policy, both the making of it and in terms of explaining it.
