A Short History of the New India
K. S. Komireddi
A thought-provoking analysis of post-Independence India from Nehru to Modi, Malevolent Republic by K.S. Komireddi charts the unsound course of Indian nationalism and its impact on the country divided by language, religion, and ethnicity. The book is an impassioned plea for India's reclamation, highlighting the dangers of Hindu-supremacist and religious majoritarianism which threaten to devour India's hard-won unity. Through an insightful and independent perspective, Malevolent Republic provides a deep understanding of the modern Indian nation and its place in global affairs.

The parallels between Modi and Trump (which he doesn’t make but will be obvious to any American reader) are *fascinating* – source
