Summary

Spinning was seen as both an economic and political activity that could bring together the diverse population of South Asia. This book looks at the politics of spinning both as a visual symbol and as a symbolic practice. It traces the genealogy of spinning from its early colonial manifestations in Company painting to its reinterpretation, deployment and manipulation by the anti-colonial movement.
