"How is fear created, spread and updated? In this revelatory book, Dibyesh Anand takes us deep into the multi-stranded fear-engendering strategies employed by India's contemporary Hindu nationalists. With a sharp feminist eye for exactly how both femininities and masculinities are wielded, he provides lessons for all of us concerned about the mobilization of ethnic hatreds and militarized nationalisms." - Cynthia Enloe, author of Nimo's War, Emma's War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War"Dibyesh Anand s book offers a sustained, innovative analysis of a central aspect of Hindu nationalist collective imaginings: the production of anti-Other fear. It is a must-read for anyone interested in right-wing social and political movements and in the local-to-transnational conflict in which they are engaged."
