Part two of the interview I did with the Real News Network.
Sumit Sarkar’s new book on modern India (an updated version of his classic, Modern India, 1885-1947) seems to be close to finished. I interviewed him and Tanika Sarkar a few years ago, while I was a graduate student at UC Berkeley. I was excited to discover this new video recording of the Sarkars reading a paper on Marxism and Indian history. I learnt almost all of my Indian history by reading his books.
