Sobre o livro
This book examines the impact of railways on colonial Indian society in the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth century. It contributes to the wider debates on how far technology can propel social change, regardless of the political context of transmission. The author finds that the impact of railways was not as radical as is sometimes painted.
