This book, then, is a history of the ways in which religion intersected with dramatic political and social change in colonial India. It will come as no surprise to social historians that religion has been drawn upon to express material complaint in times of rural social, political, and economic stress; a corollary, in modern south Asia at least, is that monks have readily assumed the burdens of peasant advocacy. But, despite the importance of radical monks who led rural rebellions, most of the.
