Robert Knight by Edwin Hirschmann
Book DescriptionThis volume is a historical biography of Robert Knight-a pioneering editor and the founder of The Times of India in Bombay and The Statesman in Calcutta-and covers his entire life from 1825-90. It outlines the history of two major newspapers of the present era. Robert Knight was one of the ardent critics of colonial rule in India during the late nineteenth century. In this volume Hirschmann elaborates on the connections of the world of newsprint with the colonial establishment and Indian people. He also provides a fresh approach to the Orientalism debate by deploying the narrative of an Englishman, involved in the age of emerging public communication system.
