This book traverses the Indian Ocean in the period when the British held sway over the major oceanic waters of the world. In reviving the history of the Andamans as an important imperial prize, it offers a fresh perspective on the history of British colonialism, nationalism and the creation of modern India from its geographic periphery.
APARNA VAIDIK is Assistant Professor of History at Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA. She is a graduate of the Centre for Historical Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
