The book addresses important historiographical questions by taking cognisance of emergent perspectives adopted by social science scholarship over the last twenty-five years.

There is a focus on other strands of the nationalist movementfrom the revolutionary to socialist and other leftist groups, and the role of womenand its various ideological contestations.
