Book Description
Hindoostan is a major contribution to the study of the encounter between Europeans and non-Europeans in the early colonial period. It is an in-depth analysis of Hindu society, politics and religion, it offers a detailed and systematic study of character, manners, habits and costumes of the Hindu way of life as the author encountered. It is further embellished by the presence of upwards of one hundred coloured engravings dating back to the year 1822. It records a description of the people out by the editor, is `not a single nation, but a great number of nations intermixed together.` Hindoostan tries to capture the verve and variety of this land, and it is unique in its effecitve conceptualisation of a vast cultural terrain.
