(p.1) Introduction
The Classics and Colonial India

Phiroze Vasunia

Oxford University Press

This chapter sets out the conceptual and methodological issues that are raised by the book in general and by the study of colonial India and classical antiquity. The idea of the classic as it develops in Europe is set against notions of the classic in India, from the era of William Jones to the twentieth century. The introduction also provides some of the socio-historical background for the other chapters in the book and gives a brief outline of its contents.

Keywords:   introduction, colonial india, the classic, william jones, conceptual and methodological issues
