British Discovery of Hinduism in the Eighteenth Century by Prof. P. J. Marshall

Book Description

One of the incidental consequences of the success of British arms in eighteenth-century India was the appearance of a number of publications which reflect the intense curiosity of contemporary Europeans about strange peoples, their manners and religions. Of the three principal religions of India, Hinduism attracted the most attention. European contact with Islam was several centuries old, while few travellers could identify Buddhism with any certainty. This book reprints some of the most significant English contributions to the early European understanding of Hinduism.

Books By Author Prof. P. J. Marshall

Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke by Prof. P. J. Marshall Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke, Hardback (October 2015)

This volume is the last of three Party and Parliament volumes of the Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke, which ranges in subject matter from following Burke through from the last phases of the American War to the controversies over the French Revolution, which drove a rift between Burke and Charles Fox, the leader of his party.

Remaking the British Atlantic by Prof. P. J. Marshall Remaking the British Atlantic, Paperback (February 2015)

P. J. Marshall focuses on a crucial phase in the history of British-American relations: the first ten years of American Independence. Neither the trauma of war nor the failure to create harmonious political relations prevented the re-establishment of the very close links that had spanned the pre-war Atlantic.
