From “force of law” to “power of justice”: memory of the Indian Rebellion of 1857–1859. in public consciousness of Great Britain in 60–70s of 19th century (to assess experience of conflict resolution)

Annotation

The relevance of the research topic is determined by a demand of studying the historical experience of prevention and completion of colonial wars, including internal imperial armed conflicts from the point of view of the major cultural and historical and ideological components – ideas of the right and justice. The problem is considered on the example of research of collective memory of Indian revolt of 1857–1859 in public consciousness of Great Britain in 1860–1870's. Research has extensive documentary base: the materials of the British capital and provincial periodicals have special value because they were not becoming object of research in such volume earlier and within this way the formulated research tasks. The analysis carried out allowed drawing conclusions that sepoy mutiny was one of key events in public memory of British in 1860–1870’s. It is proved that memory of sepoy rebellion was socially significant for the British society information, influencing political and cultural processes in society. The aspiration not to allow development of the armed opposition in India similar to sepoy mutiny, stimulated not only to large-scale reforming of a control system of India, but also transformation of ideas Britons on the law and justice in colonial policy.
