schema:description""The volume also considers such issues as mapping of space, setting of administrative boundaries, definition of languages, policies towards representation and popular education, and the onset of decolonization. Tracing deeper connections across apparent subject boundaries, this book, like its companion Peasants, Political Economy, and Law, revisits the debate on the impact of empire on both Britain and India. It also offers a further reflection on the questions raised in Robb's earlier works." "On account of its engagement with topical themes, interesting details, and arguments, this collection will be of enormous interest to historians, sociologists, economists, political scientists, and the informed general reader."--BOOK JACKET."@en
