- The expansion of British rule 1600-1859. First impressions -- Indians and the making of the Raj -- Bengal and beyond -- The experience of British rule, 1600-1859. Landed society and British rule -- Commerce and industry under company rule -- The company, class and caste -- The experience of the state -- Cultural and religious life under company rule -- Resistance to British rule.
- Most traditional Raj histories deal with the actions, motives, and thoughts of the British who occupied, governed, and administered the subcontinent. The Making of the Raj: India under the East India Company flips the focus and tells not of the rulers but concentrates on the Indian workers--the farmers, the millhands, the servants, and the gardeners. The book uncovers the untold and priceless tales of the individuals who were subjected to the rule of the British during the Raj, describing the impacts upon the lives of Indians themselves. --from publisher description
