About this product
- DescriptionBased largely on new material, this book examines thuggee as a type of banditry, emerging in a specific socio-ecomic and geographic context. The British usually described the thugs as fanatic assassins and Kali-worshippers, yet Wagner argues that the history of thuggee need longer be limited to the study of its representation.
- Author BiographyKIM A. WAGNER completed his PhD in History at the University of Cambridge, UK, in 2003. He is currently a Research Fellow at King's College Cambridge, and Associate Researcher at the University of Edinburgh. He works on banditry and the methodological use of trial records, as well as colonial fears of indigenous conspiracies.
