‘Retrieving the forgotten category of Indian menial labourers in the Great War, this magisterial study explores their fate in local and global sites, from pre-War confl ict zones to post-War demobilisation, pulling together military, legal, labour and migration histories in a narrative that is as complex as it is compelling.’
– Tanika Sarkar, Retired Professor, Centre for Historical Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University‘Consolidating a decade of pioneering research, this is a book of rare scholarship and imagination. Combining extraordinary archival work with intricate attention to multiple historical frameworks, it recovers the minutiae of the “coolie” world to reconceptualise—quietly yet radically—the “global” history of the War.’
– Santanu Das, Professor of Modern Literature and Culture, All Souls College, University of Oxford‘Among the recent bumper crop of World War studies, this magisterial work stands out. By examining the history of war as a history of work, Singha reveals the potency of global war as a catalyst of societal transformation in South Asia.’– Ravi Ahuja, Professor of Modern Indian History, Georg-August University of Gottingen
