Book Description
Englands Ascent to power coincided with the rise of empirical science as an authoritative way of knowing not only the natural world, but the human one as well. In South Asia, the British scientific passion for classification, combined with the Christian impulse to differentiate people according to religion, led to the designation of Indians as either Hindu or Muslim according to rigidly defined criteria that paralleled classification in botanical and zoological taxonomies.
