This is the first collection of Bernard S. Cohn's essays on colonial and post-colonial India, writings that have been of seminal importance to scholars of the subcontinent since the 1950s. A scholar of history as well as anthropology, Cohn offers readers a unique perspective on the social structure, colonization, and transformation of Indian society. This study will be of special value for courses in anthropology, sociology and history.
