The RSS: A View to the Inside

05 September 2018

Walter K Andersen and Shridhar D Damle

More than thirty years ago, the American academic Walter Andersen and the Indian scholar Shridhar Damle came together to write The Brotherhood in Saffron, their first book on the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. In this, their new work, they address fundamental questions about the RSS, including its rapid growth over the past 25 years, its response to India’s new socioeconomic milieu and the impact of its growth on the country’s politics and policy.
