       : Gandhi and the politics of crafts after 1920 
520    "Well before Gandhi popularized hand-spun, hand-woven 
       cloth, Britishand Indian activists had made crafts central
       to plans for India's economic and cultural revival. &
       nbsp;Combining tradition and employment at a time of 
       industrial transition, crafts appealed to both government 
       officials and nationalist activists alike - even as they 
       bemoaned artisansas conservative and backwards.  That
       connection between development and cultural judgment was 
       not incidental. Drawing on a wide range ofcraft 
       development initiatives in western India between 1851 and 
       1922 -from art and industrial schoolsto model factories, 
       pattern books, exhibitions, technical experiments, and 
       cooperatives - McGowan argues thatcrafts came to political
       prominence through British and Indian negotiations over 
       power: power over the lower classes, over the economy, and
       over the future of the country
