Speaking the Nation

The Oratorical Making of Secular, Neoliberal India

New Edition

Anandita Bajpai

  • The first scholarly commentary on the rhetoric of Narendra Modi in his speeches. No other book so far that deals with the rhetoric of Indian Prime Ministers.
  • First book that is dealing with the rhetoric of Indian Prime Ministers also the first scholarly commentary on the rhetoric of Narendra Modi
  • Fresh perspective on secularism and market liberalization given all scholarly literature works with very different primary sources and mostly with second level critiques, this book gives a new twist to the two most evergreen topics in Indian politics, about the most official visions of the state in India
  • More than looking into the why and pros or cons of both state secularism and market liberalization, it asks how the state 'sells' both to the Indian population as well as the wider world
