"The Indian Nation in 1942 edited by Gyanendra Pandey, although focused on a particular period, is also concerned with the 'making' of the Indian nation. It thus enables us to trace some of the features of the socio-economic structures that emerged in post-independence India. Set largely within the mainstream politics, the 1942 movement proves to be a veritable testing ground for the tall claims made by the leadership during the anti-imperialist struggle many of which were discarded in the attempt to retain only the 'charisma' of the movement later..."
