MEDIA REVIEWS
"A breakthrough book in the field of colonial and postcolonial studies. . . . In exploring the intricate ways in which theater and politics were intertwined in the everyday experiences of the colonizer and the colonized in India, Bhatia shows how drama and performance were the most important genres in the practice of nationalism."
--Simon Gikandi, University of Michigan
