On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the memorable 1857 Rebellion, this book situates the way the nature of the Rebellion has been debated over the last century and a half. This is achieved by tracing the historiography of the Rebellion and incorporating vital selections - including tracts from some out-of-print books - to bring to the reader a comprehensive picture of the Rebellion. The volume also brings together the expanding boundaries of research, some historians have traced its interactions with the adivasis, explored gender-related issues and brought out fascinating aspects related to the mentalities of the Rebellion.
