Containing contributions by Indian and Western scholars side by side and covering the period from Vasco da Gama's arrival in India to the present day, this book attempts to explore the complicated processes of Indian identity formation from both an Indian and a Western perspective. Not only the history, language and literatures of India, but also more specific aspects of modern India are analyzed as markers of this process.
