    Abstract

    This article reflects on C. A. Bayly's legacy, with particular attention to his late turn to the history of Indian political thought. It highlights the force of his attempt to approach South Asian history with a keen eye to its specificity without correlatively compromising his attention to questions of comparability. It also highlights some of the conceptual and methodological dilemmas with which his final work confronts us.
