Description

The book dives into the history of sedition and censorship in colonial India.

Closely examining 100 texts that the British Empire banned, censored or deemed seditious, the work brings to life these lost gems from India's freedom, cultural, and social movements.

It includes writing by figures famous and obscure, of events immortalised and forgotten, by Indians and non-Indians, by people jailed and free, by politicians and missionaries, by travellers and novelists, and in several Indian as well as European languages.

Each excerpt illuminates not just its author's thought processes, but the times in which it was composed and circulated.
