Overview

The Rashrtiya Swayamsevak Sangh and its affiliated groups - usually known as the "Sangh Parivar" - are the most powerful organisations in India today. But as what they stand for, and you will get two very different answers. Starting with the RSS’ own texts, and exploring its history and the relationship between its beliefs and Indian politics, the book tries to answer two key questions: what does RSS and its affiliated groups actually stand for, and what does their rise mean for India’s future? 

Based in Dehradun, Shankar Gopalakrishnan is affiliated to Chetna Andolan, a mass organisation based in Uttarakhand. He has been working with organisations fighting for human rights and social justice for the last two decades. He has also written extensively on development, workers' rights, contemporary history, natural resources, the environment and other issues.
