"Science, Technology, and Medicine in Colonial India is a welcome antidote both to presentations of twentieth-century Indian science as the simple fruit of transplanted European learning and to fundamentalist offerings that seek to establish Hindu precedents for modern science, accusing the latter of merely borrowing from ancient oriental learning." Isis
'The history of modern India has long needed a series of survey volumes to bring together the fruits of the past twenty-five years' intensive scholarship. This The New Cambridge History of India promises to do.' The Times Literary Supplement
'... works of substantial scholarship, providing not merely a synthesis of existing material but also original research, insight and in some cases thoughtful new interpretations. They are all compelling reading.' The Times Higher Educational Supplement
'In almost every way (these books) mark a tremendous leap forward. (The New Cambridge History of India) is a detached, post-colonial enterprise and if the volumes which follow preserve the same quality of scholarship and writing then there is a treat in store for all students of sub-continental history. The literary fluency which makes all the volumes an excellent read for lay persons interested in recent Indian history comes, I think, from a deep and intimate knowledge of the subject.' The Guardian
