Overview

Business, Race, and Politics in British India, C. 1850-1960 / Edition 1

This study examines the political, racial, and economic attitudes of an important group of British businessmen in India. In explaining the reasons for their decline, Misra casts new light on British colonial society and makes an important contribution to the current debate on the role of race and culture in the erosion of British imperial power.
