The present book, Early Anti-British Revolts in Andhra, 1766-1857, is a study of the numerous struggles carried out in Andhra region against the British, much before the outbreak of the 1857 Revolt. As appropriation of surplus and monopoly of trade were the dominant factors during the initial phase of the colonial rule, the opposing elements in these revolts naturally were the revenue collecting chiefs like the Rajahs, Zamindars and Palegars. The book deals with such early revolts from the time the Company started acquiring the Andhra region in 1766. The Revolt of the Zamindars in the Circars was over the quantum of their peishcush, while the revolt of the Chittoor Palegars was on the dispossession of the Arcot Nawabi and the rebellions of the minor Zamindars in the Agency area were mostly because of the utter disregard of the Company towards the local chiefs. The Wahabi movement and the role played by Rasool Khan the Nawab of Kurnool, the indomitable courage with which Mubarez–ud-Daulah, the Prince of Hyderabad conspired, though unsuccessfully against the British, and the reckless valor with which Narasimha Reddy of Uyyalawada fought against the Company armies in 1846, served as inspiring examples for posterity. The Mutinies in the army, that this book highlights-the Visakhapatnam, the Mominabad and the Bolaram Mutinies, speak of the courage of conviction with which the native sepoys in the British army violently resisted the religious intolerance and obnoxious discrimination the British Commanders practiced in India. The book in essence, tries to capture that rebellious spirit of the natives against colonial injustices, both on civil and military fronts. Printed Pages: 229.
