9788129110435: Hindoostan

Hindoostan is a major contribution to the study of the encounter between Europeans and non-europians in the early colonial period.It is an in depth analysis of Hindu society,politics and religion,it offers a detailed and systematic study of character,manners,habits and costumes of the Hindu way of life as the author encountered.It is further embellished by the presence of upwards of one hundred coloured engravings dating back to the year 1822.it records a description of the people of india which as rightly pointed out by the editor,is not a single nation,but a great number of nations intermixed together.Hindoostan tries to capture the verve and variety of this land,and it is unique in it's effective conceptualisation of a vast cultural terrain. Hindoostan is a rare documentation by a European,edited by Frederic Shoberi,about the western perceprtion of the ways and customs of the east.It is for those interested in the dynamics of cross-cultural encounters,historical analyses of travel literature,and the historiography of the period.This book is a treat for students and scholars of anthropology and ethnography as well for book lovers and collectors.
