Indian nationalism has been a site for major debates and scholarly inter­ventions. Issues centring around the question of leadership and participa­tion, its logic and nature have attracted many historians. This book situates Orissa within the broad context of the national movement. In doing so it deals with a region neglected by serious historical enquiry. In particular, its focus on the peasants, tribals and the outcastes of this area makes it an important and pioneering work. Rich in empirical data, it draws from a wide range of sources, including folklore and oral evidence, to contour the com­plexities of popular perceptions. This is then integrated into a study of their resistance to feudal and colonial oppression.
The value of this work lies particularly in its making visible the unreco­gnised role of society`s marginals in the national movement in Orissa.
While attempting this task it departs from the centrality sometimes given
to the Congress, or to the ‘Subalterns’. Instead it explores in a far more dialectical fashion how the Congress itself was being shaped by the com­mon people, while shaping them.
Being an original contribution, this book will be of interest to a variety
of readers – students of social history, peasant studies and the politics of modern India.
