Dominance without hegemony : history and power in colonial India by Ranajit Guha( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is colonialism and what is a colonial state? Ranajit Guha points out that the colonial state in South Asia was fundamentally different from the metropolitan bourgeois state which sired it. The metropolitan state was hegemonic in character, and its claim to dominance was based on a power relation in which persuasion outweighed coercion. Conversely, the colonial state was non-hegemonic, and in its structure of dominance coercion was paramount. Indeed, the originality of the South Asian colonial state lay precisely in this difference: a historical paradox, it was an autocracy set up and sustained in the East by the foremost democracy of the Western world. It was not possible for that non-hegemonic state to assimilate the civil society of the colonized to itself. Thus the colonial state, as Guha defines it in this closely argued work, was a paradox--a dominance without hegemony
History at the limit of world-history by Ranajit Guha( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past is not just, as has been famously said, another country with foreign customs: it is a contested and colonized terrain.

Ranajit Guha, perhaps the most influential figure in postcolonial and subaltern studies at work today, offers a critique of such historiography by taking issue with the Hegelian concept of World-history. That concept, he contends, reduces the course of human history to the amoral reco

A Subaltern studies reader, 1986-1995 by Ranajit Guha( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Subaltern Studies Collective, founded in 1982, was begun with the goal of developing a new critique of both colonialist and nationalist perspectives in the historiography of colonized countries. Its most famous members{u2014}Gayatri Spivak, Partha Chatterjee, and others{u2014}were instrumental in establishing the discipline best known as postcolonial studies. A selection of the definitive and most influential work from the collective{u2019}s eponymous journal, these essays chart the course of subaltern history from an early concentration on peasant revolts and popular insurgency to an engagement with the more complex processes of domination and subordination in a variety of the changing institutions and practices of evolving modernity
