Between 1939 and 1945 India changed to an extraordinary extent. Millions of Indians suddenly found themselves as soldiers, fighting in Europe and North Africa but also - something simply never imagined - against a Japanese army threatening to invade eastern India. Many more were pulled into the vortex of wartime mobilization. Srinath Raghavan's compelling and original book gives both a surprising new account of the fighting and of life on the home front. For Indian nationalists the war has tended to be seen as a distraction from the quest for national independence - but Raghavan shows that in fact the war lay at the very heart of how and why colonial rule ended in South Asia. By seeing the Second World War through Indian eyes, Raghavan transforms our understanding of the conflict - with famous battles such as those in North Africa and Iraq reinterpreted, as well as fascinating and little known campaigns such as the destruction of Italian northeast Africa. Time and again, it was Indian troops that made Britain into a global power and, as the war came to an end, it was the Indian army that fought the final battles which marked the end both of the Japanese empire, and of the British.

A wide-ranging survey of the Indian sub-continent, Modern South Asia gives an enthralling account of South Asian history. After sketching the pre-modern history of the subcontinent, the book concentrates on the last three centuries from c.1700 to the present. Jointly written by two leading Indian and Pakistani historians, Modern South Asia offers a rare depth of understanding of the social, economic and political realities of this region. This comprehensive study includes detailed discussions of: the structure and ideology of the British raj; the meaning of subaltern resistance; the refashioning of social relations along lines of caste class, community and gender; and the state and economy, society and politics of post-colonial South Asia The new edition includes a rewritten, accessible introduction and a chapter by chapter revision to take into account recent research. The second edition will also bring the book completely up to date with a chapter on the period from 1991 to 2002 and adiscussion of the last millennium in sub-continental history.

»Ma, ich gehe fort. Ich bin erschöpft vom Konsumieren, vom Nehmen und Raffen. Ich bin so vollgestopft, dass ich keine Luft mehr kriege. Ich gehe fort, um mich zu reinigen, mein altes Leben hinter mir zu lassen. Ich habe das Gefühl, in einem geborgten Haus zu leben. Es ist Zeit, mein eigenes zu suchen. Verzeih mir.« Kalkutta, 1967 – die Stadt befindet sich im Aufruhr, Studenten liefern sich Straßenschlachten mit der Polizei, Betriebe werden bestreikt. Angetrieben von dem Wunsch, sein eigenes Leben und die Welt zu verändern, hat sich Supratik, der älteste Enkel im Haus der Ghoshes, einer maoistischen Gruppierung angeschlossen. Während er versucht, die landlosen Tagelöhner für den bewaffneten Kampf zu gewinnen, und sich dabei in die Widersprüche zwischen politischem Idealismus und terroristischer Aktion verstrickt, bleiben die Zeichen der Zeit hinter den Mauern des Familiensitzes unerkannt. Noch herrschen der alternde Patriarch und seine Frau über die weitverzweigte Familie und ein Unternehmen, das diese in Wohlstand leben lässt. Aber so wenig sie die Brüchigkeit der alten Ordnung erkennen, so blind sind sie für die dunklen Geheimnisse der Kinder, die Intrigen der Schwiegertöchter und den schleichenden Kollaps des Familienunternehmens, der die Familie schließlich vor eine Zerreißprobe stellt. Meisterhaft erzählt Neel Mukherjee die Geschichte vom Verfall einer Familie und seziert dabei die Seele einer Nation.

By exploring themes of fragility, mobility and turmoil, anxieties and agency, and pedagogy, this book shows how colonialism shaped postcolonial projects in South and Southeast Asia including India, Pakistan, Burma, and Indonesia. Its chapters unearth the contingency and contention that accompanied the establishment of nation-states and their claim to be decolonized heirs. The book places key postcolonial moments - a struggle for citizenship, anxious constitution making, mass education and land reform - against the aftermath of the Second World War and within a global framework, relating them to the global transformation in political geography from empire to nation. The chapters analyse how futures and ideals envisioned by anticolonial activists were made reality, whilst others were discarded. Drawing on the expertise of eminent contributors, The Postcolonial Moment in South and Southeast Asia represents the most ground-breaking research on the region.

This book offers diverse and original perspectives on South Asia’s imperial military history. Unlike prevailing studies, the chapters in the volume emphasize both the vital role of culture in framing imperial military practice and the multiple cultural effects of colonial military service and engagements. The volume spans from the early East India Company period through to the Second World War and India’s independence, exploring themes such as the military in the field and at leisure, as well as examining the effects of imperial deployments in South Asia and across the British Empire. Drawing extensively on new archival research, the book integrates previously disparate accounts of imperial military history and raises new questions about culture and operational practice in the colonial Indian Army. This work will be of interest to scholars and researchers of modern South Asian history, war and strategic studies, military history, the British Empire, as well as politics and international relations.
