This collection of twelve original essays is the first concerted attempt to examine representations of India in the nineteenth-century media. It offers analyses of a representative sampling of contemporary media publications produced in India as well as in Britain between 1840 and 1900. The result contributes to ongoing analyses of the complex cultural relations between metropole and periphery in imperial systems.
