This chapter concludes the book by teasing out the global lessons from the three instances of the progressive dilemma examined in it: the contest over ‘new times’, the right response to Hindutva, and Britain's postmulticulturalist future. It assesses whether majoritarian pressure for the political centre to drift rightwards is being resisted by the emerging generation of political actors, called ‘multiculturalism's children’, and what the Left as a whole can do to support their struggles.

Keywords: Hindutva; Britain; multiculturalism; majoritarian pressure; Left politics
