Modern South Asia : history, culture, political economy by Sugata Bose( Book )

74 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on the newest and most sophisticated historical research and scholarship in the field, Modern South Asia is written in an accessible style for all those with an intellectual curiosity about the region. After sketching the pre-modern history of the subcontinent, the book concentrates on the last three centuries from c.1700 to the present. Jointly written by two leading Indian and Pakistani historians, it offers a rare depth of historical understanding of the politics, cultures and economies that shape the lives of more than a fifth of humanity." "In this comprehensive study, the authors debate and challenge the striking developments in contemporary South Asian history and historical writing, and cover the entire spectrum of modern South Asian history - social, economic, and political. The book provides new insights into the structure and ideology of the British raj, the meaning of subaltern resistance, the refashioning of social relations along the lines of caste, class, community and gender, the different strands of anti-colonial nationalism and the dynamics of decolonization." "This new second edition has been updated throughout to take account of recent historical research. It brings the story up to date and offers new insights on the last millennium in subcontinental history. There is a new chronology of key events."--Jacket

His majesty's opponent : Subhas Chandra Bose and India's struggle against empire by Sugata Bose( Book )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The man whom Indian nationalists perceived as the "George Washington of India" and who was President of the Indian National Congress in 1938–1939 is a legendary figure. Called Netaji ("leader") by his countrymen, Subhas Chandra Bose struggled all his life to liberate his people from British rule and, in pursuit of that goal, raised and led the Indian National Army against Allied Forces during World War II. His patriotism, as Gandhi asserted, was second to none, but his actions aroused controversy in India and condemnation in the West. Now, in a definitive biography of the revered Indian nationalist, Sugata Bose deftly explores a charismatic personality whose public and private life encapsulated the contradictions of world history in the first half of the twentieth century. He brilliantly evokes Netaji’s formation in the intellectual milieu of Calcutta and Cambridge, probes his thoughts and relations during years of exile, and analyzes his ascent to the peak of nationalist politics. Amidst riveting accounts of imprisonment and travels, we glimpse the profundity of his struggle: to unite Hindu and Muslim, men and women, and diverse linguistic groups within a single independent Indian nation. Finally, an authoritative account of his untimely death in a plane crash will put to rest rumors about the fate of this "deathless hero." This epic of a life larger than its legend is both intimate, based on family archives, and global in significance. His Majesty’s Opponent establishes Bose among the giants of Indian and world history
Peasant labour and colonial capital : rural Bengal since 1770 by Sugata Bose( Book )

23 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author examines the related themes of demography, commodity production, agrarian social structure, and changing forms of peasant resistance. Agrarian relations are addressed along lines of gender and generation as well as class and community. By focussing on 'peasant labour', Bose integrates the histories of land and capital. He also explores the relationship between capitalist development of the economy under colonial rule and elements of both change and continuity at the point of primary production and appropriation
Agrarian Bengal : economy, social structure, and politics, 1919-1947 by Sugata Bose( Book )

17 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As well as being an outstanding contribution to Indian economic and social history, this book draws important conclusions about peasant politics in general and about the effects of international economic fluctuations on primary producing countries. Dr Bose develops a general typology of systems of agrarian production in Bengal to show how these responded to different types of pressure from the world economy, and treats in detail the effects of the world Depression on Bengal. Separate chapters are devoted to the themes of agrarian conflict and religious strife in east Bengal, the agrarian dimension of mass nationalism in west Bengal and sharecroppers agitations in the frontier regions. The conclusion attempts a synthesis of the typology of agrarian social structure and the periodisation of peasant politics, placing this in the wider context of agrarian societies and protest in other parts of India and in South-east Asia

Cosmopolitan thought zones : South Asia and the global circulation of ideas( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents a major contribution to the study of South Asian intellectual history in transnational perspective. It critically examines forms of South Asian cosmopolitanism in the era of anti-colonial agitation. Starting with the assertion that the history of political ideas in South Asia can neither be pictured as the contestation between well-defined `local' and `global' epistemes, nor as the battle between `patriotic' and `internationalist' perspectives, these essays throw unprecedented light on the intermediate spaces of intellectual encounter and interchange that linked South Asian thinkers to counterparts and conversations worldwide from the late nineteenth century through to independence. These essays discard presuppositions about hermetically-sealed local traditions endangered by `Westernizing' forces, and undo the stubborn tether that ties the study of colonial South Asian thought to the British metropolis alone. The imaginative and physical travels of intellectuals and political activists across oceans, from Johannesburg to Tokyo, from Calcutta to New York, or from Bombay to Rome, emerge as significant trajectories for the study of South Asian history within global horizons. The interactions with other colonized groups worldwide, with Europeans outside Britain and with minoritized communities in North America, constitute a largely unexplored archive for the study of modern South Asian history. --Book Jacket
The essential writings of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose by Subhas Chandra Bose( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The popular perception of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is that of a warrior-hero and revolutionary leader who led a life of suffering and sacrifice and who during the Second World War waged a great armed struggle for the freedom of India. What is often forgotten is that the warrior paused between battles to reflect on and write about the fundamental political, economic and social issues facing India and the world during his lifetime. Distilled out of a twelve-volume set of his Collected Works, this centenary edition of his Essential Writings is designed to provide a single-volume introduction to the thought of India's foremost militant nationalist
