India-s post-TRIPS (Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual
Property Rights) patent law reforms, which incorporates a
remarkable array of flexibilities, is seen as a counter-
harmonization measure in direct opposition to the
dominant model of patent law pioneered by the United
States. India-s response, which represents an alternative
model of confirming to the TRIPS Agreement, has seen
stiff resistance in the form of counter-provisions in
Free Trade Agreements entered by the United States and
other countries. This book explains why India took that
unique route in patent law, details the provisions that
made the Indian patent law unique, and charters the
course for countries awaiting to follow the Indian

Linking four continents over three centuries, this book
demonstrates the centrality of India--both as an idea and
a place--to the making of a global British imperial
system. In the seventeenth century, Britain was
economically, politically, and militarily weaker than
India, but Britons increasingly made use of India-s
strengths to build their own empire in both America and
Asia. Early English colonial promoters first envisioned
America as a potential India, hoping that the nascent
Atlantic colonies could produce Asian raw materials. When
this vision failed to materialize, Britain-s circulation
of Indian manufactured goods--from umbrellas to cottons--
to Africa, Europe, and America then established an empire
of goods and the supposed good of empire. The author
recasts the British empire-s chronology and geography by
situating the development of consumer culture, the
American Revolution, and British industrialization in the
commercial intersections linking the Atlantic and Indian

This volume interrogates the concept of decolonization,
which is often taken to mean a transfer of power from a
colonial to an indigenous elite. However, decolonization
involved a much more complex historical experience for
the people of the postcolonial nations. It did not
necessarily mean a clinical break with the past, but was
rather an incomplete, complicated process, as different
groups began to seek different meanings of freedom and
imagined multiple pathways for their future development.
Old nationalisms were questioned and new identities were
born, as fresh boundaries were drawn, both geographically
and socially. .

Departing from approaches that see the city as the
unproblematic product of British initiative and
disciplining, -Claiming the city- presents the urban
processes shaping Calcutta as contested and partially
indigenous. In a crucial intervention the work studies
how the colonial urban was not just born out of the
ordered institutional spaces inscribed by public parks
and squares, sewers and water supplies, roads and
tramways, but also the more plebeian imprint of their
circumvention by the city’s inhabitants - through their
use of this civic infrastructure, violence, protest and
street demonstrations. In the process the book also
traces the ways in which the once proverbial City of
Palaces turned by the early twentieth century into a city
of endemic unrest and political strife.
