This thesis examines the relationship between Dominique Lapierre's writing on India and discourses of humanitarianism. This thesis regards his writing as part of more general discursive practices that govern writing about lndian history and Indian poverty. In particular, it examines the discursive practices attached to the institutions and ideologies of humanitarian action. The three chapters demonstrate how Lapierre's representations of humanitarian government in India rely on a synthesis of the older regime of imperial humanitarianism and the later regime of nee-humanitarianism.
