Summary
"This volume brings together seminal writings on the rebellion of 1857, including out-of-print tracts to provide a comprehensive picture of the rebellion. It discusses all major debates related to the rebellion and outlines changes in historiography from the imperialist and nationalist interpretations to popular uprisings, Adivasi protests, and mentalities involved. The editor's introduction deals with the debates and the historiography while raising new questions and potential research areas. The selection has essays from very prominent historians like Eric Stokes, Christopher Bayly, Rudrangshu Mukherjee, Tapti Roy, Rajat K. Ray and others"--Publisher's description
