Summary A second generation of emerging Dalit theology texts is re-shaping the way we think of Indian theology and liberation theology. This book is a vital part of that conversation. Taking post-colonial criticism to its logical end of criticism of statism, Hebden looks at the way the emergence of India as a nation state shapes political and religious ideas. Keith draws on historical trends, Christian anarchist voices and the religious experiences of indigenous Indians.
