The Revolt of 1857 is being increasingly recognized as one of the major events of the nineteenth century a turning point in the history of imperialism. The sheer scale of the uprising and its unique place in the narrative of anti colonial resistance has prompted it to be interpreted on several occasions in the past by nationalist leaders historians and officials and the literature on 1857 has grown in volume as the country observed its 150th anniversary. Recently there has been an increasing awareness of the need to study in detail the ideas of the Rebels regarding their own cause the varied composition of their ranks and the different understandings of their legacy. The essays in this volume have been written essentially in response to this need by scholars who have sought to explore much hitherto neglected material on that event. Readers will find much that is refreshing and provocative in this volume and will get glimpse into the minds of the Rebels who belonged to different areas and classes as well as their organizational capabilities and the problems they confronted during the Great Revolt. 146 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 73650
