Summary "This book makes a case for considering the Indian periodical press as a key forum for the production of nationalist rhetoric. It argues that between the 1870s and 1910, the press was the place in which the notion of 'the public' circulated and where an expansive middle class, and even larger reading audience, was persuaded into believing it had force. Kamra shows that the increasingly antagonistic relationship between the press and colonial regime is where and how a nationalist public sphere first develops"-- Provided by publisher
