I am delighted to announce Past Imperfect, a podcast series looking at the history of India and the world. This series examines new scholarship on Indian history as well as works of global history which speak to all things subcontinental. The first episode of Past Imperfect -- where I speak with Ramachandra Guha about his latest book, Rebels Against the Raj, and the challenges of Indian biography -- is available here:
At the moment we have six further episodes planned for this year: with Linda Colley (The Gun, the Ship, and the Pen), Nikhil Menon (Planning for Democracy), Priya Atwal (Royals and Rebels), Robert Stephens (Bombay Imagined), and Joseph Sassoon (The Global Merchants). Episodes will be released on a monthly basis.
