This book examines instances of transformative dissent, turning points or shifts in popular mobilisation patterns in contemporary India, while adopting a historical approach and analysing past events. Exploring the different continuities and discontinuities in mobilising patterns and dissident agency in India, the authors present a heterogeneous insurrectional pattern that pivoted around issues of caste, class, religion, land reform, labour, taxation and territorial control, with anti-colonialism movements becoming prominent in the first half of the twentieth century. The authors move beyond this to explore more recent templates of mobilisation which surfaced towards the end of the twentieth century, during India’s liberalisation period. With growing marketisation and technological advancement, unprecedented changes in social relations, growing economic opportunities and cultural transfusion taking place, the country became a ‘New India’ - one which aspired to be a global player in the wider technological public sphere. Tracing the historical trajectories of social movements in India, this book examines recent trends in digitised dissidence and explores new frontiers of protests, providing fresh insights for those researching the history of social movements, South Asian and Indian history and postcolonial studies.

He co-edits Kairos, the journal of the Postcolonial Studies Association of the Global South. Manas Dutta is Assistant Professor in the Department of History at Aliah University in India, and his current area of research covers issues related to war and conflict in South Asia, with a special focus on civil-military relations in the Global South. In 2018, Manas was a Fellow in the Institute of Critical Social Inquiry at the New School for Social Research, USA. Tirthankar Ghosh is Assistant Professor in the Department of History at Kazi Nazrul University in India. His areas of specialisation are the social history of disaster, the ecological and environmental history of India, the economic history of India and social and political movements in colonial and post-colonial India
