This is a new edition of a political study of Indian administrators in the twentieth century. The focus is primarily on the Indian Civil Service and its successor, the Indian Administrative Service. The book examines how the British ruled India and why the colonial administrative structures they initiated are still prevalent in India today. Studying the Indian Civil Service and its successor, the Indian Administrative Service, and drawing on reminiscences of the men and women who served in them as well as previously unpublished documents, Potter explains how state forms are reproduced through time despite political changes in their environment.
