 ABOUT THE TITLE
An illuminating inquiry into the play of power and dominance behind 1857
On 27 June 1857 rebels publicly slaughtered over 300 men women and children of the ‘master race’ at the Satichaura Ghat in Kanpur. On 15 July a group of women and children who had survived were killed at the Bibighur. Two days later General Havelock reclaimed Kanpur and Colonel James Neill decimated the rebel population. This sequence of violence has held sway over Indian and British imaginations for generations and historians and commentators have recounted the massacres with horror.
Locating the massacres in the upheaval which overtook north India in the early nineteenth century Rudrangshu Mukherjee an eminent 1857 historian analyses the nature of the violence. Mukherjee argues that the absence of rebel accounts and chronicles inhibits a telling of their version of the story. What is available are the contemporary accounts of British survivors diaries of British loyalists and depositions as part of the official report prepared by the British. By reading these sources ‘against their grain’ and by examining the manner in which the evidence was stitched together Spectre of Violence brings to light fresh directions of inquiry into the events of 1857.
