The Intimate Enemy

Loss and Recovery of Self Under Colonialism

Second Edition

Ashis Nandy

This edition, including a new postscript by the author, explores the ways in which colonialism damaged the colonizing societies themselves, and how the likes of Gandhi resisted their rulers in British India by building on the lifestyle, values, and psychology of ordinary Indians and by heeding dissenting voices from the West.

New to this Edition:

  • A new Preface by the author, commemorates twenty-five years of the book being in print
