The Origins of Modern Historiography in India : Antiquarianism and Philology, 1780-1880 Hardback
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Cultural and Intellectual History series
This book uncovers practices surrounding acts of collecting, surveying, and antiquarianism during British colonial rule in India.
By examining these practices, this book traces the colonial conditions of the production of 'sources,' the forging of a new historical method, and the ascendance of positivist historiography in nineteenth-century India.
