Book Description Book Condition: New. Oxford University Press, 2003. 218p. Hardback. As Upamanyu Pablo Mukherjee argues in his insightful, well-researched Crime and Empire, the British campaigns against both sati and Thuggee were part of a more general reformist approach to India that at once mirrored the rise of the new police in Britain and had the effect of criminalizing Indian culture as a whole. And if secular, utilitarian reformism worked to criminalize India, that was just as true of evangelicalism, as Jeffrey Cox points out: For evangelicals . something was very wrong with India, and the source of the evil was crystal clear: it was religion. Hinduism was obscene and cruel and bloody and lascivious, and so forth, and because of Hinduism, Indians were liars, thieves, widow-burners, murderers of infants, and so forth(24).
