Subalterns and Sovereigns: An Anthropological History of Bastar, 1854-1996
Oxford University Press, 1997 - 296 páginas
In the popular imagmation, Bastar in Madhya Pradesh represents the frontier between 'civilization' and tribal society. The occasional echoes of discontent which filter through are posed as a conflict between development or integration versus anti-development. Subalterns and Sovereigns throws new light on these issues by exploring the expansion of the state in Bastar over the past century and a half. By focusing on the history of resistance to colonialism, the author argues for a rethinking of the debate. Areas like Bastar have been integrated for much longer than is commonly thought - the question is, on what terms? How have these terms changed over time? What has been the role of anthropology and law in this process?
