9780195642384: Building the Railways of the Raj, 1850-1900 (Oxford India Paperbacks)

Some 25,000 miles of railways were constructed in India from 1850 to 1900, involving a considerable investment of British capital, their railway technology, the presence of a small number of their engineers, skilled workmen, and the mobilization of millions of Indian workers. This book represents the first, wide-scale examination of this subject in modern times.

Review:


"What Kerr conveys very much enriches understanding of the colonial relationship in India."--American Historical Review


"Ian J. Kerr's carefully documented reconstruction of early Indian railway history reveals a fascinating tale of collaboration and compromise between British engineers and Indian workers - a triumph of management as much as of engineering."--Times Literary Supplement
