War Of No Pity
The Indian Mutiny And Victorian Trauma
Sobre o livro
Although by twentieth-century standards the number of victims was small, the Victorian public saw 'the Indian Mutiny' of 1857-59 as an epochal event. This book seeks to discover why. It offers a view of this episode - and of Victorian imperialist culture more generally - at odds with the standard formulations of postcolonial scholarship.
