About the Author

Partha Chatterjee is professor of anthropology and of Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies at Columbia University; and honorary professor at the Centre for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta. His books include "The Politics of the Governed".


"[H]ighly insightful, at times quite brilliant ..."--David Washbrook, Times Literary Supplement "Chock-full of mini topics and discursive asides, and illustrated with a number of photographs and illustrations, this book is required reading for the genre."--Choice "The Black Hole of Empire is his most ambitious book yet. Challenging existing understandings, reinterpreting the meaning of well-known events, and displaying an authoritative knowledge of an astonishing range of scholarly literature, we encounter a historian at the top of his game."--Gyan Prakash, 3QuarksDaily "[S]timulating and original... In following a trail from history as once every British schoolboy learnt it, Chatterjee illuminates one of the pressing issues of international relations today."--William Crawley, BBC Northern Ireland
