De’s study shows how the science-based and expert driven indigo culture of the colonial force shaped its affairs in the undivided Bengal, influenced its economic policies and drove the international trade. Divided into seven chapters with an appendix, De begins with the early history of the indigo cultivation in India, explores its successive stages and discusses the cost of human factors that led to the rebellion.
