about

This volume examines the first four decades in the history of the Andaman Islands penal colony. At the centre of the analysis are the meanings of 'crime' and 'rehabilitation' in colonial India, the objectives of punishment, and the responses of Indian criminals to the punishment inflicted bythe colonial state.
