Ideologies of the Raj is consistently clear and flutent', Clive Dewey, The Times Literary Supplement.

Review:

"The research of half a lifetime informs every page he writes--and he writes well. Ideologies of the Raj is consistently clear and fluent." The Times Literary Supplement

"This volume is an excellent survey of one aspect of this intellectual encounter....Metcalf at his best in elucidating the complex ideas that dominated British thinking in the late nineteenth century....The sure touch of an astute and well-read scholar is apparent as Metcalf discusses these issues and a wide range of individuals and intellectual movements." Lynn Zastoupil, Victorian Studies

"...this is a welcome addition to the growing scholarship on intellectuals and imperialism....These and other new studies complement Metcalf's fine book by helping to clarify that the intellectual encounter between rulers and ruled was a complex and multi-faceted one, in which ideas flowed in both directions and ideologies were jointly constructed by, and were mutually useful to, various groups in both Britain and the subcontinent." Lynn Zastoupil, Victorian Studies

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Ideologies of the Raj examines how the British sought to justify their rule over India. The author argues that two divergent strategies were devised to legitimate their authority: the one defined characteristics which the Indians shared with the British themselves, while the other emphasised qualities of enduring difference . In the end, however, the differences predominated in the colonial view of India. Since the British constructed few explicit ideologies of empire, the author explores the workings of the Raj through the study of its underlying assumptions as revealed in policies and writings. Students of modern India and the British Empire will find Thomas Metcalf s book relevant and accessible. Seller Inventory # APC9780521589376
