The Other Empire: Metropolis, India and Progress in the Colonial Imagination

$14.10 USD

This comparative analysis looks afresh at the writings of observers such as Henry Mayhew, Patrick Colquhoun, Charles Grant, Pierce Egan, James Forbes and Emma Roberts, thereby seeking to rethink the location of the poor and India within the 19th-century imagination. Drawing upon cultural and intellectual history it also attempts to extend our understanding of the relationship between centre and periphery . The text should be of value to students and scholars of modern imperial and urban history, cultural studies and religious studies
