This set demonstrates the simultaneous appearance of colonialist and anti-imperialist rhetoric in the same text, highlighting the raw edge given to the transitional nature of the colonial project in this period. The texts:
* represent central documents in the emergence of modern Indology
* demonstrate how closely interwoven are the histories of Oriental scholarship and of British administrative policy contributions
* present the Orientalist side of the argument concerning the government of India to balance and oppose the Utilitarian and Anglicist bias implicit in James Mill's History of British India.
