In Defence of Honour and Justice

Author: Sabyasachi Dasgupta

In Defence of Honour and Justice focuses on the ‘sepoy’ rebellions of the nineteenth century as an entry point into the wider dynamics of the pre-1857 colonial armies. Delving beyond the usual binaries of discipline and indiscipline, which tend to draw a linear teleology between the localized mutinies in the colonial armies and 1857, it seeks to explore the broader issues these mutinies raise about the colonial armies, and issues like the prevalence of certain notions of honour and justice among the ‘sepoys’, contrasting conceptions of discipline, structures of deference, the construction of colonial stereotypes and their influence on policy decisions, etc. These indices were linked to broader questions of loyalty and the construction of a distinct ‘sepoy’ identity. This volume suggests that the colonial endeavour of ensuring a loyal ‘sepoy’ could be a bitterly contested one even in the absence of mutinies and could revolve around instances of day to day conflicts. below
