about

This book relates the dramatic story of the struggle that took place between the Indian press and the British government for control of the Indian public sphere between 1870 and 1910. The contest gave the Indian reading publics their first taste of a struggle conducted from within the confines of the law, introduced vocabularies for conceiving counter-discursivity and defined the press and the government as distinct and opposed communities. Sukeshi Kamra deftly shows that the increasingly antagonistic relationship between the press and colonial regime is where and how a nationalist public sphere first developed.
