Description - The Indian Mutiny and the British Imagination by Gautam Chakravarty

Gautam Chakravarty explores representations of the Indian Mutiny of 1857 in British popular fiction and historiography and within the wider context of British involvement in India. Drawing on diaries, autobiographies and state papers, Chakravarty demonstrates how narratives of the rebellion were inflected by the concerns of colonial policy and the demands of imperial self-image. The book has a broad interdisciplinary appeal.
