Thuggee by Kim A. Wagner

Book Awards

  • Shortlisted for Longman/History Today Book of the Year Award 2008.

Book Description

Based largely on new material, this book examines thuggee as a type of banditry, emerging in a specific socio-economic and geographic context. The British usually described the thugs as fanatic assassins and Kali-worshippers, yet Wagner argues that the history of thuggee need no longer be limited to the study of its representation.
