Peasant Labour and Colonial Capital by Sugata Bose

Book Description

This book is a critical work of synthesis and interpretation on one of the central themes in modern Indian history - agrarian change under British colonial rule. Sugata Bose analyses the relationships between demography, commercialization, class structure and peasant resistance unfolding over the long term between 1770 and more recent times. By integrating the histories of land and capital, he examines the relationship between capitalist 'development' of the wider economy under colonial rule and agrarian continuity and change. Drawing most of his empirical evidence from rural Bengal, the author makes comparisons with regional agrarian histories of other parts of South Asia. Thus, this study stands on its own in the field of modern Indian social and economic history in its chronological sweep and comparative context and makes the complex subject of India's peasantry accessible to students and the interested non-specialist.

Books By Author Sugata Bose

His Majesty's Opponent by Sugata Bose His Majesty's Opponent, Paperback (November 2012)

This definitive biography of Subhas Chandra Bose, the revered and controversial Indian nationalist who struggled to liberate his country from British rule before and during World War II, moves beyond the legend to reveal the impassioned life and times of the private and public man.

Modern South Asia by Sugata Bose Modern South Asia, Paperback (January 2011)

Provides insight for those with an intellectual curiosity about South Asia. This study offers fresh insights into the structure and ideology of the British raj, the meaning of subaltern resistance, the refashioning of social relations along the lines of caste, class, community and gender, and the dynamics of decolonisation.

Cosmopolitan Thought Zones by Sugata Bose Cosmopolitan Thought Zones, Hardback (May 2010)

Examines forms of cosmopolitanism in the high period of South Asian anti-colonialism, 1890-1947. Essays argue that anti-colonial action stemmed not only from a teleological rush to realize the form of nation-states, but from the speculative aspiration to critique and transcend notions of universalism and the ultimate good brought by British rule.

Hundred Horizons by Sugata Bose Hundred Horizons, Paperback (April 2009)

On December 26, 2004, giant tsunami waves destroyed communities around the Indian Ocean, from Indonesia to Kenya. This work offers a reinterpretation of how culture developed and history was made at the height of the British raj.
