Social Change in Nineteenth Century Ceylon. Patrick Peebles attempts to clarify the issues underlying the current crisis in Sri Lanka. After tracing the history of interethnic relations in the region, he focuses on the Accelerated Mahaweli Programme, designed to promote development in the Dry Zone between the Sinhalese and Tamil majority areas. Because of such colonization plans, he argues, government policies have transformed the ethnic composition of certain areas and exacerbated the ethnic conflict.

The encounter with portrait photography in colonial Ceylon presents a rare amalgam of identity, culture and occupation in the history of the sub-continent. A synthesis of 'community and status' or 'community and habitat' finds a striking pictorial foothold in the island and the photographic repertoire in this essay will attempt to showcase such encounters through the studio photographs of both the elite and the local populace. The subdued but arresting shots of natives at work and within the domestic realm, in addition, finds a place in this collection. They offer a glimpse into life on the island in the late 19th century, capturing themes related to bourgeoisie ess, religious revivalism and civilian life.

This book investigates more carefully how knowledge of the Plantation Tamils was produced and in doing so dispels some of the more persistent myths about the Plantation Laborers. The result is not a complete narrative history of the Plantation Tamils, but it should make such a history less difficult to write in the future.
