book synopsis/description:

Forming a pair with the classic, Aryans and British India, this pioneering work examines the phenomenon discussed in the former book from a different perspective and in a different local expression, that of colonial Madras in the Ellis years, especially the years from the founding of the College of Fort St George in 1812 to the untimely death of Ellis in 1819. This was a period when the most interesting interactions about languages and nations were taking place between Indian and English scholars in Madras, resulting eventually in a distinctive Madras School of Orientalism. In this book Trautmann in his trademark expertly incisive manner highlights the most spectacular and durable results of the intellectual production of the Madras School of Orientalism, which he calls the Dravidian proof. Mandatory reading for all students and scholars of ancient and modern Indian history, this book is a most compelling sequel to the classic Aryans and British India.
