It traces the history of the British Indian sepoy back to the fifteenth century, firmly rooting him in Indias medieval past.

It also shows that, from the anthropological point of view, it was not the hierarchically arranged castes, but rather the multiple alliances and fluid identities of the peasantry that were the central phenomena of North Indian politics and decision making.
