Everyday Life of the Baboos

Microhistories of Race, Class and Identity in Colonial Bengal

The Bengali Baboos, representative of the Western-educated, middle class, were the product of a colonial anglicisation policy. Through an in-depth empirical research largely based on the critical analysis of untapped primary sources, this book examines everyday lives of the Baboos in the “public” contact zones defined by interracial anxiety and internal class competition.
