Synopsis

Mutiny at the Margins Anticipations and Experiences in the Locality New Perspectives on the Indian Uprising of 1857 by Crispin Bates

The Mutiny at the Margins series takes a fresh look at the Revolt of 1857 from a variety of original and unusual perspectives, focusing in particular on neglected socially marginal groups and geographic areas which have hitherto tended to be unrepresented in studies of this cataclysmic event in British imperial and Indian historiography. Anticipations and Experiences in the Locality (Volume 1) centres on unrest and disorder in the long history of resistance to colonial rule (the belli Britannica) prior to 1857, and the impact of the revolt itself in diverse localities within India.

Reviews

In the seven volumes of this series, the writings systematically investigate various aspects of the [1857] uprising. Along with the traditional sources, the writers have also taken into account all that had remained undiscovered or ignored so far... Indeed, this series is most comprehensive collection to date of historical writings on the Indian Uprising of 1857. Since it also reinterprets and re-imagines the various events, it becomes invaluable to historians and research scholars as well as all those interested in understanding the events leading to the 1857. -- The Financial World [The] four volumes--with three more to come--mark a welcome rediscovery of 1857 by professional historians drawn together from across the globe...This series will be a valuable resource and starting point for further work on 1857, and essential for serious students of antecedents, course, and consequences of the mutiny...Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates and above. -- R.A. Callahan CHOICE [The book] investigates some very interesting aspects of the events of mutiny...these volumes represent a comprehensive effort to go beyond the strong narratives on the mutiny and examine micro details. The first volume tell of the events that happened before the mutiny...volume two focuses on the diverse British responses, in India and in England, to the mutiny...volume three examines the mutiny and the responses it elicited across the world. -- The Tribune
