"Sabin's engagement with her unusual subject is always meticulous and intelligent; and welcome, too, given that it focuses on a nation and a class whose intelligentsia takes itself so seriously."--Times Literary Supplement
"Generous, humane.... It would be an opportunity lost if postcolonial critics did not take up the challenge that Sabin's ceaselessly responsive readings cumulatively pose."--Studies in English Literature 1500-1900
"Margery Sabin's Dissenters and Mavericks is, in effect, a moral history of British and postcolonial India, but it could only have been written by a gifted literary scholar. The chapters on Naipaul, Sleeman, and Burke are enormously suggestive, and all of the book will reorient the thoughts of readers who had glimpsed only episodes where Sabin discovers continuity. The book is a splendid achievement--original in conception and steadily rewarding in the detail of its judgments."--David Bromwich, Yale University
"Tough-minded and written with exemplary clarity, Dissenters and Mavericks will stir controversy and in fact invites it, for it is in itself an act of dissent from the current orthodoxies of postcolonial studies. Margery Sabin's work marks a new stage in our attempts to deal with the history of writing about India in English--and new precisely because it might, to some readers, seem old-fashioned in its concern with questions of individuation and idiosyncrasy."--Michael Gorra, Smith College
