The Mutiny at the Margins series takes a fresh look at the Revolt of 1857 from a variety of original and unusual perspectives, focusing in particular on neglected socially marginal groups and geographic areas which have hitherto tended to be unrepresented in studies of this cataclysmic event in British imperial and Indian historiography. Anticipations and Experiences in the Locality (Volume 1) centres on unrest and disorder in the long history of resistance to colonial rule (the belli Britannica) prior to 1857, and the impact of the revolt itself in diverse localities within India.
