Establishing Connections

Subaltern Studies VI. Writings on South Asian History and Society edited by Ranajit Guha; Oxford University Press, Delhi, 1989; pp 335, Rs 200. THIS volume's contents are extremely diverse. Perhaps the best way to inform readers as to why this is so is to refer to three review essays that have appeared on the earlier volumes of this series: by Dipankar Gupta, Rosalind O'Hanlon and Chris Bayly in Peasant Studies, Modem Asian Studies and Journal of Peasant Studies. In these review articles the respective authors have commented upon very nearly all the issues that have in one way or another surfaced in the series. That plenitude of topics, researched or merely commented upon (there is a distinction), makes for the diversity of issues discussed in this, the sixth, volume It may not be a bad idea to begin to think of the subaltern studies series now as one would of a journal.
