Review

[H]ighly insightful, at times quite brilliant . . .--David Washbrook "Times Literary Supplement "


[H]ighly insightful, at times quite brilliant . . .
--David Washbrook "Times Literary Supplement "

"The Black Hole of Empire" is his most ambitious book yet. Challenging existing understandings, reinterpreting the meaning of well-known events, and displaying an authoritative knowledge of an astonishing range of scholarly literature, we encounter a historian at the top of his game.--Gyan Prakash "3QuarksDaily "

One of "HistoryToday"'s Books of the Year 2013, chosen by Chandak Sengoopta

"[H]ighly insightful, at times quite brilliant . . ."--David Washbrook, "Times Literary Supplement"

"[H]ighly insightful, at times quite brilliant."--David Washbrook, "Times Literary Supplement"

"Chock-full of mini topics and discursive asides, and illustrated with a number of photographs and illustrations, this book is required reading for the genre."--"Choice"

""The Black Hole of Empire" is his most ambitious book yet. Challenging existing understandings, reinterpreting the meaning of well-known events, and displaying an authoritative knowledge of an astonishing range of scholarly literature, we encounter a historian at the top of his game."--Gyan Prakash, "3QuarksDaily"

"[S]timulating and original. . . . In following a trail from history as once every British schoolboy learnt it, Chatterjee illuminates one of the pressing issues of international relations today."--William Crawley, "BBC Northern Ireland"

"[T]he scope, depth, and reach of "The Black Hole of Empire" is an achievement that is difficult to match. . . . "The Black Hole of Empire" is, in all its richness or argument and historical detail, a book that no anthropologist, historian, or political theorist of empire can afford to miss."--Peter Pels, "Current Anthropology"

"[T]he book is so richly detailed and so thoughtfully argued that it can serve as the perfect introduction to the history of British India and, indeed, of imperialism itself."--Chandak Sengoopta, "History Today"

One of "HistoryToday" s Books of the Year 2013, chosen by Chandak Sengoopta"

From the Back Cover

"This is a powerfully argued account of the origins and subsequent justification of British rule in India, and an exploration of the response by Bengali elites to colonialism. A work of classic history, this book carries an intellectual power and brilliance of insight that will excite much interest and comment."--Thomas Metcalf, professor emeritus of history, University of California, Berkeley

"Moving skillfully between gripping narrative and thoughtful interpretation, "The Black Hole of Empire" is a deeply researched, brilliantly crafted, and exquisitely written work on the British empire in India. Ambitious and complex, it richly resonates with contemporary political and ethical concerns. A masterly work by one of the finest intellectuals of our times."--Sugata Bose, Harvard University
