Product Description

This book dives into the history of sedition and censorship in colonial India. 75 years after Indian independence from British rule, it closely examines just over 75 texts that the colonial state banned, censored or deemed seditious.

These lost gems from the Indian freedom movement include writings by figures famous and obscure, of events immortalized and forgotten, by Indians and non-Indians, by people jailed and free, by politicians and intellectuals, revolutionaries and students, and in several Indian languages. Each excerpt illuminates not just its author’s thought processes, but the times in which it was composed and circulated.
