About this book

Examines forms of cosmopolitanism in the high period of South Asian anti-colonialism, 1890-1947. Essays argue that anti-colonial action stemmed not only from a teleological rush to realize the form of nation-states, but from the speculative aspiration to critique and transcend notions of universalism and the ultimate good brought by British rule.
