Book Summary of The Great Uprising in India, 1857 58: Untold Stories, Indian and British


The Great Uprising in India, 1857-58: Untold Stories, Indian and British A volume in the Worlds of the East India Company series, edited by Huw Bowen The events of 1857-58 in India are seen here through a series of untold stories which show that they were much more complex than hitherto thought. Drawing on sources in Britain and India, including contemporary East India Company records, together with oral memories from India illustrated with a number of nineteenth century photographs, the author tells of the murder of the British Resident in the princely state of Kotah of Indians who opposed the Mutiny, and suffered at the hands of the \\\"mutineers\\\" of a small, but significant, number of Europeans who fought with the Indians against the British and of the infamous \\\"prize agents\\\" of the East India Company - licensed looters whose rapacity seemed limitless. The book conveys vividly what it was like for different kinds of participants to live through these traumatic events, bringing to life their anxiety and desperation, the grisly bloodshed, and the vast devastation - illustrating overall, as one Indian soldier who served in the East India Company\\\'s army put it, \\\"the wind of madness\\\". Dr ROSIE LLEWELLYN-JONES is author and editor of numerous books on India, including The Nawabs, the British and the City of Lucknow (1985) and Portraits of the Indian Princes (forthcoming)
