Product description


[The book] opens a new window explaining the Gandhian construct of the “Indian nation” as being deeply rooted in the 19th century Atlantic revolutionary legacies...the book contends the popular belief that Gandhi’s South Africa experiments were novel yet merely a preparatory phase for his formidable contribution to Indian nationalism...[it is] a groundbreaking work revealing the Atlantic linkages of Gandhian thoughts and tactics.... A must read.

(The Hindu)

[The book] throws open a rich corpus worth engaging with...it traces Gandhi’s life as a cosmopolitan diasporic subject whose life abroad connects provocatively with the ferment of ideas around the Atlantic rim...the author’s appreciable effort is visible from the corpus of reference used to etch the volume.

(Social Change)

Nalini Natarajan makes a persuasive case for understanding Gandhi’s diasporic sojourns abroad as the transformative foundation for his mature sociopolitical position. Gandhi’s only time within the Atlantic region was his journeys to London. Thus the “Atlantic” in Natarajan’s title refers not primarily to a place, but to an analytic: the notion of the Atlantic region as ground zero for the development of the modern capitalist world-system…. this important and eminently readable book not only makes critical interventions into both Indian diaspora and Black Atlantic studies, but also the history and politics of the modern world.

--New West Indian Guide(2016 forthcoming).
