British Imperial Railways in Nineteenth Century South Asia

The massive predatory and exploitative nature of the imperial railway project under the façade of Britain's benevolence to the people of India could not have been further from the reality of the material condition of the masses under colonial hegemony. This paper undertakes a comprehensive analysis of the British imperial railways during the second half of the 19th century.
