      1. Chakrabarty’s main contention and contribution in this book is an analysis of how post-colonial thought might affect the discipline of social science. He deconstructs the widely held notion that ‘Europe’ (the place but also the idea) is the true home of the ‘modern,’ and argues that this notion is forced upon non-Western countries and linked to notions of capitalist development and progress.
