The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's "tradition of selfless service"

Beckerlegge, Gwilym (2004). The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's "tradition of selfless service". In: Zavos, John; Wyatt, Andrew and Hewitt, Vernon Marston eds. The Politics of Cultural Mobilization in India. South Melbourne, Victoria, Australia: Oxford University Press, pp. 105–135.



The papers in this volume investigate the association between politics and cultural mobilization, and the possibilities it creates for a rethinking of the relationship. The volume isolates two trends in fragmentation of Indian politics: the impact of cultural mobilization on the fragmentation of identity and the increasing regionalization of the Indian political system.
