From the Publisher"Nayar makes the field of 'colonial discourse studies' irresistible to anyone seeking to explore the complex relationship between textual production, (South) Asian Orientalism, and the politics of empire building."
- Walter S. H. Lim, National University of Singapore
"Drawing on an enormous range of writing, Dr. Nayar provides a lucid and nuanced analysis of British representations of India as a continent to be discovered, controlled, ‘civilized’, and incorporated. This important book by one of India’s leading scholars gives students and scholars a significantly new understanding of the complex nature and history of colonial discourse regarding India."
- C.L.Innes, University of Kent
"A theoretical and historical perspective on colonial discourse…an impressive demonstration of the nature and power of discourse using an array of texts from the archive of British India."
- Nandana Dutta, Gauahati University
