Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Grass in their Mouths: The Upper Doab of India under the Company's Magna Charta, 1793-1830 contains the table of contents, preface, list of illustrations and maps and a list of abbreviations that occur in the book. The book argues that the disdain the eighteenth-century Westminster parliaments expressed both for Indians and the East India Company induced the Bengal civil service to formulate for itself a corporate identity that, because of its distant and self-centered character, prevented it to acquire an executive hold on most levels of the Indian administration.

Keywords: East India Company; Upper Doab
