Abstract [en]

On the 150th anniversary of the disruptions in British India, scholars have still not reconciled themselves to an appropriate terminology for them, while politicians hijack the events for their own agenda. In order to examine this controversial episode in the development of modern India, two influential early histories of 1857 are looked into, as well as a recent historical work which has taken a different approach.
