PressestimmenReview of the hardback: 'Well researched and lucidly written, the book is a pleasure to read, and is perhaps particularly useful for readers who are newcomers to the primary and secondary literature of Britons' ideas about India and who seek a solid introduction to some of the cultural influences of the empire within Britain. It is also a handy synthesis of recent work on travel, race, and empire with a special focus on East India.' English Historical Review Review of the hardback: '... thorough and sparkling study of imperial discontents ...' Kathleen Wilson, Journal of British Studies
