Imprint of the Raj: how fingerprinting was born in colonial India
Sengoopta, Chandak (2003) Imprint of the Raj: how fingerprinting was born in colonial India. London: Macmillan. ISBN 9780330491402.
Opening in 1902 with the first case in a British criminal court to use the radical new technique, this is an original exploration of fingerprinting's birth in colonial India and its subsequent repercussions: fascinating, beautifully illustrated, and based on hitherto unpublished research.
