'Nobodies to Somebodies' examines the origins and growth of the bourgeoisie in Sri Lanka during British rule - an important but neglected aspect of the country's modern history. It traces the evolution of the bourgeoisie from a 'feudal' society and mercantilist economy, to the age of plantations. This study assigns primacy to class over caste, and gives details about the rise of the new-rich 'Nobodies' of many castes, ethnicities, and religions into the ranks of the 'Somebodies'.
