In this book, Thomas R. Trautmann continues the examination he began in Aryans and British India (1997). Whereas the previous book focused on Calcutta and Jones, the current volume examines these developments from the vantage of Madras, focusing on Ellis, Collector of Madras, and the Indian scholars with whom he worked at the College of Fort St. George. Making use of the rich colonial record, Trautmann colcludes by showing how elements of the Indian analysis of language have been folded into historical linguistics and continue in the present as unseen but nevertheless living elements of modern history.
