Abstract:

"This work, the first of its kind, illumines the little-known world of men of letters, for the most part teachers at the Delhi College. No one has surpassed them in their capacity to recover an epoch's intellectual tendencies. Zakaullah, the historian, Nazir Ahmad, the novelist, or Mirza Ghalib, the poet, present readers with a kaleidoscope of life around them, bringing alive the society of their time better than any academic construction could achieve." "The uniqueness of this scholarly volume lies in the fact that it looks at the attitudes and behaviour of literary and historical figures living through the 1857 upheaval, a reappraisal of their culture and identity, and, above all, the impact of their thinking and activism on contemporary society."

"It will interest a wide cross section of historians, political scientists, and sociologists."--Jacket.
