Using James Tod’s Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan, this book demonstrates the power of the British imperial state in constructing historical memories in late nineteenth and early twentieth century India, and how imperial histories reflected Indian social processes as well as European imperial concerns.

From the Back Cover:

James Tod s Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan was crucial in forming the modern image of the R jp t, a princely martial caste resident in India s northwest desert. This book explores the relationships between the political power of the British imperial state, the construction of historical memories in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and the uses of these constructions by European writers and Indian nationalist elites. The case of the Rajputs demonstrates how imperial histories reflected Indian social processes and pre-colonial forms of knowledge, interpreted India for the world outside and for Indians themselves. This book explores the multiple discourses within Tod s Rajasthan, and European Orientalism, to show how intricately coded the British Empire was and, historically, remains.

About the Author:

Jason Freitag, Ph.D. (2001) in Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures from Columbia University is an Assistant Professor of History at Ithaca College. His research interests include the Britsh Empire in India, historiography, and European Orientalism.
