Pub. Date:
The Indian railroad system is among the most fascinating in the world, says Kerr, a retired history professor (U. of Manitoba), and he recounts its birth and growth since the 1850s, with an emphasis on the impact it had on the political and economic development of the country. For the first century, until 1947, it was a colonial railroad system designed to serve the imperial occupation, and has continued to be shaped by the colonial legacy after independence and partition, he explains.
