This book examines the connections between the fascist regime and Indian radical nationalism. These contacts developed within the frame of the Italian foreign policy, which was essentially anti-British and became more anti-British approaching the Abyssinian war and the second World War.

The most remarkable contacts were established with the Bengali political milieu. Consuls and intellectuals played an important role in developing such contacts. Tagore’s visits to Italy in the 1920s and the much more relevant liaison with Subhas Chandra Bose and the INA “adventure” were the results of these contacts.

While representatives and emissaries of the fascist regime worked actively to create a consensus among Bengali political circles, fascist Italy obtained a remarkable popularity among Marathi radical nationalism (from which evolved modern hindutva firces) without doing the same efforts made in Bengal. Marathi nationalists examined the fascist political literature and analyzed fascism as both an ideology and a political system. The scope of this book is not to prove that hindutva forces are fascist, but that they borrowed many elements and features from fascism as an ideology and a political practice.

Marzia Casolari is Lecturer of Asian History at the University of Perugia. She carries out research on India, South and South East Asia.
