Thompson's seminal work on popular culture to Eugene Genovese's study of African-American slave populations, to the "critical relationship with the terms of institutional power" p. Dube notes a tendency towards "transnational historiographical" studies, or "people's history" p. Dube plunges his reader into the Subaltern Studies conversation, engaging with works on peasant resistance written by Subaltern Studies group members such as Ramchandra Guha and Gyanedra Pandey p.
Dube suggests that even these pioneers of Subaltern Studies may have missed an important point.
Colonial Textures and Postcolonial Tangles
Pandey, for example, views events "in terms of the telos of a progressive peasantry forging its way toward the modern nation," but he ignores the "fact" that these initiatives were "not a radical transformation of peasant consciousness in the mirror of an imaginary modern but a reworking of peasant thought and action that involved complex renderings of ongoing traditions and contradictory articulations of a colonial modernity" p. The relationship between the subaltern and the nation is critical here, and Dube critiques works by Partha Chatterjee, Dipesh Chakrabarty and others in an effort to more narrowly describe how the subaltern responds to the "homogenizing impulses of state, nation, modernity" p.

In his discussion of the long history of this place and its significance for Hindu identity and the "fetish of the nation" p. The final chapter, "The Enchanted and the Modern," responds to the question raised at an academic conference, "Who speaks for Hinduism" or, indeed, for any other past outside of the "master blueprint" of European history p.
