Histories for the Subordinated brings together the key writings of David Hardiman, one of the foremost contemporary historians of the subcontinent. Hardiman´s practice as a historian - his enormously rich empiricism, archival work, and fieldwork, as well as his clarity - has been an inspiration to many, even as it has implicitly questioned some of the fashionably arcane modes of history-writing.

Ranging across politics, environmental issues, Gandhi, moneylending, disease, and subaltern history, the book will interest all serious readers of Indian history as well as scholars in the areas of politics, sociology, culture, and religion in modern India.
