A collection of 18th- and early 19th-century primary texts and images that represent various facets of the cross-cultural interaction between India and Britain. The anthology suggests that for a brief period - while most Europeans were involved in projects of Empire and domination - some British envisioned a convergence of cultures. [Verlagsinformation]
