The Trial of Warren Hastings : The Court of Law and the Court of Public Opinion
The first chapter of this work lays the foundational contexts necessary to understand London's political environment, media landscape, and the history of British colonial interests in broad terms, as well as basic details of Hastings' case in particular. The second chapter of this work explores the history of British involvement in Bengal, from the East India Company's arrival to Hastings' appointment as the first Governor-General. It will also highlight the three principal controversies of Hastings' tenure as Governor-General and the political hierarchy that begot them. The third chapter of this work describes Hastings' return to England and its shifting political and media climate. The fourth chapter of this work expands upon the series of events that led to Hastings' impeachment as well as the trial itself, beginning with his return to England in 1785 and ending with his acquittal in 1795. The fifth chapter of this work analyzes coverage of Hastings' trial in the public sphere. This includes newspaper articles, advertisements, etchings, and political cartoons.
