Synopsis: Alavi examines the factors used by the British when forming the East India Company's Bengal Army in the period 1770-1830. Kinship groups, diet, and caste played as important a part as the more practical financial incentives offered by pension schemes and invalid pay in providing a loyal high-status army for the emerging colonial authority.

About the Author: Dr Seema Alavi teaches at the Centre for Historical Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
