Editorial Reviews

Review

"The research of half a lifetime informs every page he writes--and he writes well. Ideologies of the Raj is consistently clear and fluent." The Times Literary Supplement

"This volume is an excellent survey of one aspect of this intellectual encounter....Metcalf at his best in elucidating the complex ideas that dominated British thinking in the late nineteenth century....The sure touch of an astute and well-read scholar is apparent as Metcalf discusses these issues and a wide range of individuals and intellectual movements." Lynn Zastoupil, Victorian Studies

"...this is a welcome addition to the growing scholarship on intellectuals and imperialism....These and other new studies complement Metcalf's fine book by helping to clarify that the intellectual encounter between rulers and ruled was a complex and multi-faceted one, in which ideas flowed in both directions and ideologies were jointly constructed by, and were mutually useful to, various groups in both Britain and the subcontinent." Lynn Zastoupil, Victorian Studies

Book Description

Thomas Metcalf's fascinating study examines the ways the British sought to legitimate their rule over India.He demonstrates that the principles the British devised incorporated contradictory visions of India, yet together they made the authority of the Raj lawful. Students of modern India and the British Empire will find this book relevant and accessible. 'The research of half a lifetime informs every page he writes - and he writes well. Ideologies of the Raj is consistently clear and flutent', Clive Dewey, The Times Literary Supplement.
