Rezension:

'Ritu Gairola Khanduri breaks new ground in Indian Studies with her captivating account of the political role cartoons and cartoonists have played in the country from the colonial period to now. Students of Indian political culture will find this book to be of enduring interest.' Dipesh Chakrabarty, Lawrence A. Kimpton Distinguished Service Professor, University of Chicago

'Ritu Khanduri's book is, on one register, about political cartooning and the history of politics in India; on another register, it provides us with a wonderful lens into debates on modernity, political society, and the state in colonial and postcolonial India. Khanduri makes a persuasive case that, far from being merely laughed at or dismissed as trivial, cartoons constitute a living archive of colonial and postcolonial history. This beautifully-written book represents a stunning accomplishment and, I predict, will be discussed, debated, and admired by scholars in a variety of disciplines not just within but also beyond anthropology, media studies, and South Asian studies.' Purnima Mankekar, University of California, Los Angeles

'Written with elegance and verve, Caricaturing Culture in India: Cartoons and History in the Modern World is a deeply researched and exemplary study of newspaper cartoons as both a form and a source of political knowledge and everyday political commentary. Ritu Gairola Khanduri's delightful romp through nearly one hundred and fifty years of cartooning in India opens up an entirely new way of tackling some of the big questions in South Asian history and historiography: liberalism, democracy, and modernity. Her deft and rigorous analysis of cartoons together with their reception, the meaning people make of cartoons that generate laughter or cause hurt, sets the bar high for future studies of the media and democracy in India.' Mrinalini Sinha, Alice Freeman Palmer Professor of History, University of Michigan

'Who laughs at what - and who doesn't - is a striking reflection of social and political relationships in society. This is why Ritu Gairola Khanduri's refreshingly original book, Caricaturing Culture in India: Cartoons and History in the Modern World, which traces India's political history through political caricatures across the ages, is timely and important.' Geetanjali Krishna, Business Standard
