The review takes as its starting point the book by Marzia Casolari In the Shadow of the Swastika: The Relationships Between Indian Radical Nationalism, Italian Fascism, and Nazism in order to look at the impact of global ideologies on the growth of interwar period Hindu radical nationalism (Hindutva), focussing on the transnational developments that influenced it. The tumultuous nature of Hindutva continues to have a stronghold in India even today, especially since the coming of a right-wing Bharatiya Janta Party government, which makes it even more important to study its origins.
