About the Author
Praise For Crafting the Nation in Colonial India…
“In this imaginative and empirically rich study, Abigail McGowan demonstrates convincingly that the Indian ‘crafts’ became a critical ground on which both colonial and nationalist projects of power were constructed during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This book is a pioneering effort in establishing the relationship between colonial knowledge, state interventions into the economy, and visual/material cultures.”--Douglas Haynes, Associate Professor of History, Dartmouth University
