Summary "Disaffected examines the effects of Section 124a, a notorious colonial law targeting "disaffection" still used in India today. Disaffection, the book argues, is crucial to understanding the centrality of affect to imperial governance; the varied forms that critique took under conditions of censorship; and the vexed emergence of Indian nationalism"-- Provided by publisher
