Book Description

The Subaltern Studies Collective, founded in 1982, begun with the goal of establishing a new critique of both colonialist and nationalist perspectives in the historiography of colonized countries. These essays chart the course of subaltern history from an early concentration on peasant revolts and popular insurgency to an engagement with the more complex processes of domination and subordination, in a variety of the changing institutions and practices of evolving modernity.

Books By Author Ranajit Guha

History at the Limit of World-History by Ranajit Guha History at the Limit of World-History, Paperback (August 2003)

The past is not just, as has been famously said, another country with foreign customs: it is a contested and colonized terrain. This title offers a critique of such historiography by taking issue with the Hegelian concept of World-history.

Dominance without Hegemony by Ranajit Guha Dominance without Hegemony, Paperback (February 1998)

A study of colonialism and the colonial state based on South Asia. The author explores how the metropolitan state was hegemonic, and its claim to dominance was based on power in which persuasion outweighed coercion, yet it sired a non-hegemonic colonial state in which coercion was paramount.

Selected Subaltern Studies by Ranajit Guha Selected Subaltern Studies, Paperback (October 1989)

The aim of these 10 essays is to promote a systematic and informed discussion of subaltern themes in the field of South Asian studies, and thus help to rectify the elitist bias characteristic of much research and academic work in this particular area.
