Review

..".an exceptionally important volume...[the] essays tell a veritable story about the character and politics of state formation in India.... Rich and full of incidental insights...it is a tribute to the power of these essays that they not only have a fresh feel about them, [but] they also speak of contemporary themes."--Pratap Bhanu Mehta, Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi"Publication of...the works of Lloyd and Susanne Rudolph is simultaneously an academic event, a part of India's journey into the postcolonial world, and a splendid form of cultural exchange.... [It] is a tribute not only to the five decades of engagement with India of the Rudolphs and their commitment to a humane political science."--Ashis Nandy, Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, Delhi"These volumes bring together the work of two extraordinary scholars. In their more recent work on political economy, the complications of hybridized identities during the colonial period, and the need for methodological pluralism in the social sciences, the Rudolphs have made us examine India, and our own scholarship more broadly, through new lenses."--Steven I. Wilkinson, University of Chicago"Indispensable reading for students of area studies and India studies.... Lloyd and Susanne Rudolph and their intellectual progeny have made the study of India one of the most dynamic and exciting fields of area studies today."--H-Net Reviews"Meticulously selected and thematically arranged in three elegantly produced volumes, these pieces...cover an extensive assortment of topics.... Lloyd and Susanne Rudolph's work has surely influenced and shaped scores of political scientists, American policy-makers, and India watchers and will undoubtedly continue to do so in the years to come."--Kailash K.K. ."..an exceptionally important volume...[the] essays tell a veritable story about the character and politics of state formation in India....
