Imprint of the Raj

Author(s): Chandak Sengoopta


An elegant, authoritative take on a little-known colonial legacy: the invention of fingerprinting. Opening in 1902 with the first case in a British criminal court to use the radical new technique, this is an original exploration of fingerprinting's birth in colonial India and its subsequent repercussions: fascinating, beautifully illustrated, and based on hitherto unpublished research.
