A book that recurs

I have written quite a few posts about the response that Ram Guha’s India after Gandhi had received as well as my own thoughts on reading the book (and, most of them are positive). The latest to join the Guha reading club is Amardeep, who has an interesting proposal:

What I propose is this: we’ll look at a chapter or so a week, and go in sequence. In each case, I’ll try and present some of the main ideas in each chapter in a blog post, so readers can participate in the discussion even if they haven’t read that chapter of the book. The idea is to do a survey of post-independence Indian history with emphasis on the conflicts that have occurred in various states.

The first such post on Chapter 3 is already in place, and, I can see that this is going to be lots of fun. Take a look!
