This accessible cultural history explores 400 years of British imperial adventure in India, developing a coherent narrative through a wide range of colonial documents, from exhibition catalogues to memoirs and travelogues. It shows how these texts helped legitimize the moral ambiguities of colonial rule even as they helped the English fashion themselves.

  • An engaging examination of European colonizers’ representations of native populations
  • Analyzes colonial discourse through an impressive range of primary sources, including memoirs, letters, exhibition catalogues, administrative reports, and travelogues
  • Surveys 400 years of India’s history, from the 16th century to the end of the British Empire
  • Demonstrates how colonial discourses naturalized the racial and cultural differences between the English and the Indians, and controlled anxieties over these differences

Keywords: Postcolonial Theory, Postcolonial Theory, Studies, Southern Asia History, British Empire, India, Imperial, dominance
