"This book presents an alternate history of colonial India in the 18th and the 19th centuries. It traces the transitions and transformations during this period through art, literature, music, theatre, satire, textile, regime changes, personal histories, and migration. The essays in the volume examine historical events and movements which questioned the traditional parameters of identity, and forged a new direction for the people and the nation. Viewing the age though diverse disciplinary angles, the book also reflects on the various reimaginings of India at the time. This volume will be of interest to academics and researchers of modern Indian history, cultural studies, and literature. It will also appeal to scholars interested in the anthropological, sociological, and psychological contexts of imperialism"-- Provided by publisher.
