History

The Mutiny at the Margins series takes a fresh look at the Revolt of 1857 from a variety of original and unusual perspectives, focusing in particular on neglected socially marginal groups and geographic areas which have hitherto tended to be unrepresented in studies of this cataclysmic event in British imperial and Indian historiography. Military Aspects of the Indian Uprising (Volume 4) deals with how battles were won and lost and how the army re-organized after the revolt. It also touches on the thorny issue of how to define the events of 1857-- as a rebellion, a national uprising or a small war of the kind experienced in many colonial states. Crispin Bates is Professor of Modern and Contemporary South Asian History in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology and Director of the Centre for South Asian Studies at the University of Edinburgh. His recent publications include Subalterns and Raj: South Asia since 1600 (London, 2007); Beyond Representation: Constructions of Identity in Colonial and Postcolonial India (Oxford, New Delhi, 2005) and (with Subho Basu) Rethinking Indian Political Institutions (London, 2005). Between 2006 and 2008 he was the Principal Investigator in a major AHRC-funded research project concerning the Indian Uprising, based at the University of Edinburgh. Gavin Rand lectures in History at the University of Greenwich in London. Most of his work explores the history of empire in South Asia, with a particular focus on the cultural history of the imperial military. He is currently writing a monograph examining the Indian Army and imperial military culture in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
