Indian Army and the Making of Punjab

 
9788178240596: Indian Army and the Making of Punjab

A handful of Englishment controlled the vast British Indian empire for nearly 200 years. Throughout this period, the colonials who ran the empire (viceroys, bureaucrats, military men, police officers) constituted a miniscule minority of the Indian population. That a few thousand British men dominated so many million Indians for so long via native collaborators (feudal princes, educated babus, peasant recruits) has long been known. This book looks closely at the Indian army in order to show precisely how collaboration worked to sustain a national empire and a local economy.
