Hussain analyses the uses and the history of a range of emergency
powers, such as the suspension of habeas corpus and the use of
military tribunals. His study focuses on British colonialism in
India from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century to
demonstrate how questions of law and emergency shaped colonial
rule, which in turn affected the place of colonialism in modern
law, depicting the colonies not as passive recipients but as agents
in the interpretation and delineation of Western ideas and
Nasser Hussain is Professor of History at Amherst College.
