The archives are generally sites where historians conduct research into our past. Seldom are they objects of research. Sabyasachi Bhattacharya traces the path that led to the creation of a central archive in India, from the setting up of the Imperial Record Department, the precursor of the National Archives of India, and the Indian Historical Records Commission, to the framing of archival policies and the change in those policies over the years.

The Colonial State: Theory and Practice

The colonial state as a subject of study has stayed in the margins of scholarly attention. In the rather sparse literature on the subject, one may see two tendencies. On the one hand, those specializing in political theory tend to think that historians merely narrate what happened. On the other hand, historians are prone to dismiss 'mere' theory. Hence the paradox that although historical writings on modern India recognize that the state was one of the chief instruments for the creation of colonialism, the theory of the colonial state has received very little attention. Thus, the historiograph... View more info

Price: $35.50

Publisher: New Delhi, Primus Books: 2013

There are some writings which remain in the pages of books, and then there are some exceptional writings which come out of the pages and enter our life. The song Vande Mataram is of that exceptional kind. When we look back to that song published 130 years ago in 1882 and written even earlier, many questions crowd our mind. What accounts for the fact that it holds its place in national psyche so many years later? How did that song become a battle cry in the freedom struggle and part of national life in the pre-independence period? What inspired poets to translate it into all major languages and...

Approaches To History : Essays In Indian Historiography

By: Sabyasachi Bhattacharya

Price: $48.15

Condition: New


History as a social science is arguably more self-reflective than associated disciplines in that family. Other social scientists seem to see little reason to look beyond the paradigm they are developing in the present times. Historians on the other hand, tend to depend on the cumulative process of the development of their craft and the fund of accumulated knowledge. Yet, while this is acknowledged in the practice of research, Historiography in itself as a subject of study has rarely found its place in the syllabi of Indian universities. Knowledge of Historiography is taken for granted when a s... View more info

Are you fit for political power even though you do not allow a large class of your own countrymen like the untouchables to use public school? … the use of public wells? … the use of public streets? … to eat any food they like? These questions, raised by Dr Ambedkar roughly a century ago, still hold true. The prevalence of caste-based violence and rising Dalit assertion has led to a revival of the movement spearheaded by luminaries such as Phule, Ambedkar and others. To comprehend this rising revolution, it is important to trace writings of the public intellectuals and social scientists t... View more info
