The Ideological Condition: Selected Essays on History, Race and Gender is a reader comprised of many of Himani Bannerji’s English writings over a long period of teaching and research in Canada and India. Bannerji creates an interdisciplinary analytical method and extends the possibilities of historical materialism by predominantly drawing on Marx, Gramsci, and Dorothy Smith. Essays here instantiate Marx’s general proposition that while all ideology is a form of consciousness, all forms of consciousness are not ideological. Applying this insight to issues ranging from patriarchy through race, class, nationalism, liberalism and fascism, Bannerji breaks through East-West binaries, challenging the mystifying approaches to the constitution of the social, and shows that a sustained struggle against ideological thinking is at the heart of a fundamental socialist struggle.

culture, nation and religion, envelop the world in a gathering fascism with many faces. We need to recognise this fascism wherever we see it – in the West or in the East, in the North or in the South. This chapter is an attempt at that recognition.

The fascism of this brahminical genocide calls for a brutal masculinisation of its cadres. Their bodies become weapons against the communities they target
