About the Authors
  • The essays in this book were originally published together as a special issue of the Journal of Modern Asian Studies, released in July 1981. They are reprinted here in their entirety. The essays are concerned with the ways in which Britain's imperial connection with India impinged upon the political, economic and social development of the subcontinent in the first half of the twentieth century.
