“Role of Political, Socio-cultural & Revolutionary Associations in Evolution of Indian Nationalism during Colonial Period”.

Historical study needs reassessment of studied facts in the current context. Objective of the book is to study structure and nature of work of various Associations at regional and national level. Manifestation of nationalism was much more in organized and object oriented manner when expressed in the form of organization. The power of being together with common objectives, common action plan and common responsibility in facing consequences gives strength to a movement.

Various associations of revolutionaries, of moderates, of women, of workers and peasants, of students have been formed during the period of national movement. Social reform movement was supporting the rise of nationalism but the book is based on nationalism and hence only such organizations were selected for study.

This book covers few of regional associations and also institutions at very micro level which were working for national movement. There are total 26 chapters in this book. Among them eleven were in English and fifteen were in Marathi.

Among the English chapters, topics covered are Role of women in raising Nationalism, women organizations like Hind Mahila Samaj, Rashtriya Stree Sabha etc. and how womenfolk came forward and became the part of mainstream of nationalists; studies especially in the early period of 20th century. Dr. Alka Kadam focused on activities in spread of nationalism. Bombay presidency Youth League and its contribution in nurturing nationalism is another aspect covered by Prof. Mandar Thakur.

In Marathi, chapters covered are worker and peasant movements and rise of nationalism, movements in various areas of Maharashtra, role of Praja Parishad, Economic nationalism etc.

The book is an attempt to bring in front the organized efforts for evolution of nationalism prior to independence. There is still a great scope to look into several local, regional and national associations and their role in emergence of nationalist feeling and struggle for independence.
