Synopsis The volume explores the scope and dimensions in the various issues and the indigenous perceptions of the Great Uprising of the 1857 in Uttar Pradesh region. It investigates this largest anti-colonial uprising east of Suez as a crises created under the larger network of English colonial economy. It focuses on an extremely important weekly newspaper Tilism published from Lucknow before the outbreak of the event. While offering an analysis of indigenous discourse in the 'rebels world of 1857' the volume contains studies stretching upon the themes of actual resistance offered to the colonial authority, 1857-59 with special reference to garhis and forests, the communication network of the 'rebels' and how Rana Jang Bahadur of Nepal was fishing in the troubled water vis-a-vis the 'fugitive rebels' as well as the British authorities. The volume closes with the reproduction of documents including the memoires (written at Andamans) of an 'ideologue', an eye-witness to the events at Delhi and Awadh for better understanding of the 'Voices of the Vanquished'.
