Member Book, Sethi (ed), Banned & Censored: What the British Raj Didn't Want Us to Read

Dear Colleagues,

I am happy to announce the publication of my second book, an anthology titled Banned & Censored: What the British Raj Didn't Want Us to Read.

About the Book

Banned & Censored dives into the history of sedition and censorship in colonial India. Seventy-five years after India’s independence from British rule, it carries excerpts from and closely examines seventy-five texts that the colonial state banned, censored or deemed seditious.
