Dipesh Chakrabarty is professor of history and of South Asian languages and civilizations at the University of Chicago. He is the author of Rethinking Working-Class History: Bengal 1890-1940 and Provincializing Europe: Postcolonial Thought and Historical Difference.


"Habltations of Modernity forms at once an original look at daily life practices in India and a stringent critique of colonial and postcolonial history. Chakrabarty refuses to map the paradoxes of modern India according to coordinates of the modern and the traditional, the public and the private, or the secular and the religious. The result is a richly poetic work that raises numerous and compelling questions for practical politics." - David Lloyd, coeditor of The Politics of Culture in the Shadow of Capital
