The book Makers of Modern Dalit History comprises several inspiring accounts of individuals who tirelessly battled divisive forces all their lives. The book seeks to enhance present-day India’s imagination and shape its perception of the Dalit community. Based on original research on historical and contemporary figures such as B.R. Ambedkar, Babu Jagjivan Ram, Gurram Jashuva, K.R. Narayanan, Soyarabai and Rani Jhalkaribai, among others, this work makes a significant addition to the Dalit discourse. This definitive volume on some of the foremost Dalit thinkers — both past and present — promises to initiate a much-needed conversation around Dalit identity, history and politics.
