The Limits of Tolerance

Indian Secularism and the Politics of Religious Freedom

C.S. Adcock

  • This is the first study to examine Tolerance as a secularist ideal
  • This book answers the call of historians of South Asia for a methodology that does not project the constitutive assumptions of European secular liberalism or contemporary Indian secularism onto the Indian past, and that can therefore break the current analytical impasse in the historiography of modern Indian political culture.
