Nationalism, Genuine and Spurious
brings together seven essays by Ashis Nandy, whose research interests centre on the political psychology of violence, cultures of knowledge, utopias and visions, human potentialities, and futures. This book belongs to the West Heavens: Readers of Current Indian Thought
series which coincides with the academic forum 'West Heavens: India-China Summit on Social Thought' presented by the 8th Shanghai Biennale, Institute of Visual Culture at China Academy of Art, and co-presented by Hanart TZ Gallery and Moonchu Foundation.

Scholars represented in this series of Readers have been invited to lecture at the 2010 8th Shanghai Biennale and they have specially selected this anthology of representative writings to introduce their thinking to the Chinese public.'
