We are now observing a shift of the centre of gravity, or the “engines” of human activities, from the Atlantic to the Asia-Pacific. Industrial productions, political conflicts, and militarization in the Asia-Pacific draw global attentions. So are intellectual, academic activities. In the field of peace research theories and practices in this region have their own contributions. Gandhi’s legacies and inspirations in the fields of economic globalization, peace education, and constitution are as relevant and important as ever. The lessons of the disasters of 3/11 in Japan echo Gandhian conc... View more info

The Sixteenth Lancers already had a long and distinguished history when they sailed for India in 1822. Over the next twenty-four years they fought in four wars, most famously in the Sutlej campaign against the Sikhs. This book examines what regimental soldiering was like in India in those years. It draws on an unprecedented range of mainly unpublished sources: official archives but also journals and letters of officers and men. An important feature of the book is a detailed roll of every officer and man who served in the Sixteenth in the Sutlej: where they came from, their trades, why they enl... View more info

Swords Trembling in their Scabbards: The Changing Status of Indian Officers in the Indian Army, 1757 1947

The Indian Army founded by the East India Company in the eighteenth century was unique among the armies of the world in that it had two groups of officers - British and Indian. The intention was that the Indian officers, coming from similar backgrounds as their men and naturally understanding their social and religious mores and customs, would form the crucial link between the British officers and the sepoy. It is surprising, therefore, that there has been very little written, by either British od Indian historians, regarding the role and experience of those offices. They were promoted from th...

About 1,600 of the Indians who served on Gallipoli died, in action at Gurkha Bluff and Hill 60. They took part in terrible, failed attacks, at Gully Ravine and Gully Spur andin the climactic attempt in August to seize the summit of Sari Bair-one of the Gurkhas' most cherished battle honours. Though commemorated on the great memorial to the missing at Cape Helles (because most Indians' bodies were crematedor, actually, lost) they are practically invisible on Gallipoli today. The Indian story of Gallipoli has barely been told before. Not only is this the first book about their part in the campai... View more info
