Imperial Connections: India in the Indian Ocean Arena, 1860-1920
Christine Padoch & Nancy Lee Peluso (eds)
A fascinating study of how the British used both the culture and peoples of India as a resource in subsequent imperial incursions elsewhere. Mughal architecture appeared in Malaya, where no Mughal had ever trod, and Indian indentured labour and fighting men underpinned colonial economies and security from in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. 264 pages.
