8vo, III, 445pp. Hardcover in grey cloth boards with gilt title on spine and non price-clipped d/w both in excellent condition now protected by clear archival covering, text and all twenty-one b/w illustrations and maps are likewise in an excellent state with only the very tiniest micro-flecking on all edges and a very small owner’s name at top right of ffep, thereby classifying this book as overall near fine. Described as being a “brilliant contribution to historical anthropology”, the author has juxtaposed an account of the mutiny with an analysis of its evolving place in history and culture, thereby offering a new interpretation of the mutiny with the cultural exploration and revolutions of the age. It is a wonderful book to read as well as being a great example of the blending together of theory and writing style.
