Banned & Censored – What The British Raj Didn’t Want Us To Read dives into the history of sedition and censorship in colonial India. Closely examining 100 texts that the British Empire banned, censored or deemed seditious, the work brings to life these lost gems from India’s freedom, cultural, and social movements. It includes writing by figures famous and obscure, of events immortalized and forgotten, by Indians and non-Indians, by people jailed and free, by politicians and missionaries, by travelers and novelists, and in several Indian as well as European languages. Each excerpt illuminates not just its author’s thought processes, but the times in which it was composed and circulated.

With Sethi’s note prefacing the historical context that led to banning of particular texts, the book serves as perfect reference for anyone interested in evolution of politics, law and modern Indian history.
