Abstract or Description

This volume provides an analytic survey of the literature produced as a consequence of the long history of Britain's rule in India. From Rudyard Kipling and E.M. Forster to Salman Rushdie, each essay looks at changing attitudes towards India in relation to the British Empire. The mix of "popular" and "high" culture reveals the complex and ambiguous relation between colonizer and colonized over almost two hundred and fifty years.
