Very researched detailed critique of one of the most mercurial books in INDIA
Reviewed in India on 19 April 2019
This book attempts to put across actual facts about Golwalkar's life and beliefs in the light of his original writings, publications of the RSS, documents available in its archives and many other RSS documents the writer collected over the last 35 years from different parts of the country, specially the original text of Golwalkar's book We or Our Nationhood Defined (1939) which is being reproduced in this book. It is the most important text in order to understand the RSS' concept of Hindu state and has not been available after 1947.
