Malevolent Republic

A Short History of the New India

K.S. Komireddi

A Hurst Publication

  • Hailed as the world's largest democracy and feted by the Trump administration in events like "Howdy Modi" in Houston, India is fast slipping into autocracy under the bigoted rule of Prime Minister Modi and this blistering critique shows how.
  • A well-regarded observer of modern India, journalist Kapil Komireddi is one of only 2,300 individuals that Modi follows on Twitter (PM Modi himself as 52.6 million followers).
  • A concise history of India from Indira Gandhi to the present, this book questions how to wrest Indian democracy from Hindu extremism before India becomes Pakistan by another name.
