    Presenting some of the newest ideas and theories in the field, Subalterns and the Raj is an introduction to the history of India, the late Mughal, and post-independence Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.Studying from before the British rule in the early eighteenth century, right up to the modern day; the post-colonial India, the book is unique in its coverage of such a wide time frame. Crispin Bates traces the continuities in history and concentrates on the 'ordinary' people of India and South Asia; the peasants, tribals and workers.Examining issues in Indian social history that are currently under explored in literature, including women's history and political developments, the book highlights controversies between historians and, taking an iconoclastic approach to the elites of South Asia since independence, is critical of the colonial regime that went before them.In a field that has developed rapidly over the past fifteen years, this book stands out as a stimulating and controversial read, and with a detailed guide to further reading and end-of-chapter bibliographies, it is an excellent study guide for students of all levels in history, politics, post-colonial studies and social sciences.
