The volume provides a reliable point of departure for new readers of Subaltern Studies and a resource base for experienced readers who want to revive critical debates. In his introduction, David Ludden traces the intellectual history of subalternity and analyses trends in the globalization of academic discourse that account for the changing character of Subaltern Studies as well as for the shifting debates around it.... well as on specific major events like the great flood of 1970, to link these images to the material reality of soil erosion, loss of agricultural productivity and the growing paucity of clean water in hill villages of Uttarakhand (Guha 1989). Particularly in the work of Chatterjee, Amin and Ranajit Guha the transition to a more Foucaultian understanding of power leads to insightful essays in Subaltern Studies?
