Book Description

The period 1707-1857 was punctuated by dramatic events which had porofound consequences for the history of the subcontinent. The ascendency of the British colonial enterprise was a more complex process than was conventionally understood and scholarship from the 1980s has contributed to a more nuanced understanding of this period of flux. This authoritative textbook identifies and examines the processes of social and political change that took place over a century and a half. Synthesising and analysing decades of research on this period, History of India, 1707-1857, covers the following main themes: The disintegration of the Mughal Empire, the emergence of successor states and the establishment of the East India Company’s dominance in the subcontinent. It also examines the debate around so, called eighteenth century transition to capitalism and the consequences of the colonial intervention. The processes that aided consolidation of the Raj, its methods of governance and the bliss of its economic set up. Social and intellectual constructs which developed during this period, laying the ground for colonial dominance as well as resistance to it. A comprehensive overview of developments in the fields of culture, art, literature, music and ideas during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Resistance to the colonial enterprise, culminating in the rebellion of 1857. Each chapter is accompanied by maps and an up-to-date bibliography as well as an extensive glossary, making this an essential text book for undergraduate students of Indian history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent concise history of India during a critical period 11 December 2011
By Jon L. Albee - Published on
This is a good narrative history of the period of Indian history that [probably] most defined the modern state. This important period saw the gradual erosion of the Muslim (Mughal) courts in north India, as they fell into hedonism and complacency in anticipation of British rule. This period also saw the rise of indigenous agitation, as the native people grew weary of paying tribute to one empire after another. The author is particularly good at demonstrating how the intermingling of economic and cultural interests created the social conditions we recognize in the diverse cities and regions of India today. Indigenous restlessness, largely as a result of conflicting cultural priorities, culminated in the revolt of 1857. The narrative stops here.

The narrative is engaging, broad and clear, discussing a wide range of topics important to the development of India - political, economic, and cultural. Dr. Subramanian is a well-known scholar of Indian history, far better known in her own country than in Europe or the United States.
