Representing Rebellion: Visual Aspects of Counter-insurgency in Colonial India
Representing Rebellion: Visual Aspects of Counter-insurgency in Colonial India
Description
From the Jacket:

The existing scholarship on insurgency and counter-insurgency in colonial India has rarely engaged with questions regarding visual representation, and the visual aspects of coercion. Using wide-ranging source material. Representing Rebellion analyses contemporary visual narratives and their importance in generating new interpretations of subaltern identity.

It examines the interface between the political and artistic agencies that authorized, produced, and disseminated to the British public, images of colonial coercion against subaltern insurgency in South Asia. The political, artistic, and journalistic representations of the 'Santhal insurrection' form the core of the book. It reinterprets the historical context of the rebellion to present contested histories of political domination, and resistance.

Rycroft develops the theory of the 'counter-insurgency complex' to comprehend the ideological tensions and slippages implicit in imperial visual narratives. He brings together a multifaceted body of ideas and images to inform a reassessment of the relationship between administrative and public discourses of colonialism.

Wide ranging and multifaceted – covering colonial geology, ethonology, militarism, imperial exhibitions, and the metropolitan press – this book will interest students and scholars of subaltern and imperial history, colonial and postcolonial theory, art, history, and culture and media studies.

About the Author:

Daniel J. Rycroft teaches at the Department of History and the Centre for Culture, Development and Environment at the University of Sussex.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
