[ India's ancient connections with the West underwent a sea-change with the advent of the "new" Europeans in the 16th century. Formal colonisation wreaked havoc, both economic and social. Yet, even in this unequal relationship India did gain. The author believes that to understand the present, it is necessary to identify the socio-economic and cultural changes introduced in colonial times. The ideas and institutions brought in by the Raj precipitated a still continuing process of transformation and assimilation. ]

[ Op 30 januari 1948 wordt Mahatma Gandhi vermoord. Waarom kwam de man die geweldloosheid predikte, zo gewelddadig aan zijn einde? Dit boek poogt deze vraag te beantwoorden. Tussen de mythe Gandhi die in het Westen opgang maakt en de historische werkelijkheid ligt een afgrond van verschil. De auteur toont de complexe wereld van het politieke India van de jaren veertig. Anti-Gandhi getint boek. ]

[ In this remarkable study, the author, underscoring the prominence in the Mahabharata of the revenge impulse, follows its trajectory in South Asian history. Side by side, he traces the role played by reconcilers up to present times, like the Buddha, Mahavira and Asoka. Encompassing myth and historical fact, the author moves from the circumstances of Drona's death and Parasurama's slaying of the Kshatriyas to the burst of Islam in India and Akbar's success in gaining acceptance for it. ]

[ De Groot-Mogols, de titel die 17e eeuwse Europeanen aan de keizers van India gaven, roepen visioenen op van onvergelijkelijke rijkdom en pracht. Er werden verhalen verteld over hun weelderige paleizen en steden, exotische tuinen, ingewikkelde ceremonien, en in de familie, genadeloze worstelingen om de macht. De eerste zes Groot-Mogols regeerden India twee eeuwen lang, schiepen de Mogol-bouwstijl en een stabiele regering die pas eindigde met de Engelse kolonisatie.

Pandey, Gyanendra (2001): Remembering Partition: Violence, Nationalism and History in India. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge (218 pag). (UI-086-016) India; onafhankelijkheidsstrijd; geschiedenis; geschiedenis, koloniaal; nationalisme; geweld; hindoes; moslims.
[ Through an investigation of the violence that marked the partition of British India in 1947, this book analyses questions of history and memory, the nationalisation of populations and their pasts, and the ways in which violent events are remembered in order to ensure the unity of the collective subject - community or nation. Stressing the continuous entanglement of 'event' and 'interpretation', the author emphasises both the enormity of the violence of 1947 and its shifting meanings and contours. ]

Pereira, Winin; Seabrook, Jeremy (1994): Global Parasites: Five Hundred Years of Western Culture. Earthcare Books, Bombay (252 pag). (UI-099-001) India; geschiedenis; geschiedenis, koloniaal; GATT; industrie, textiel-/confectie-; slavernij; multinationals.
[ From yesterday's Conquistadors to today's GATT, from raw military force to the more subtle economic strangulation of the Two-Thirds World, the West has sought to build up and perpetuate its own, parasitic system. Starting with the land-grab of the Americas, the occupation of India, enforced trade, slavery, and the empires built on narcotics, this book lays bare the foundations of the Western system and its opulence grounded in injustice and unsustainability. ]
