Overview


This Omnibus edition brings together three classic volumes by the renowned historian, Bernard Cohn, India: A Social Anthropology of a Civilization; An Anthropologist Among the Historians and Other Essays; and Colonialism and its Forms of Knowledge. In the first book, Cohn traced the development of Indian civilization by combining historical and anthropological approaches to the subject and provided a framework by example for the study of any complex society. The second book has become a legend of sorts, cited extensively in glowing terms by a whole host of scholars, who have taken the essays in this book to be a starting point for a methodology which combines the historical and anthropological approaches. The third title is a brilliant collection of Cohn's writings from the last fifteen years, discussing areas in which the colonial impact has generally been overlooked.
