Detalles del libro

"This book offers a wide-ranging and ambitious analysis of how European travellers in India developed their perceptions of ethnic, political and religious diversity over three hundred years. It discusses the growth of novel historical and philosophical concerns, from the early and rare examples of medieval travellers such as Marco Polo, through to the more sophisticated narratives of seventeenth-century observers - religious writers such as Jesuit missionaries, or independent antiquarians such as Pietro della Valle." "The book's approach combines the detailed contextual analysis of individual narratives with an original long-term interpretation of the role of cross-cultural encounters in the European Renaissance. The author thus proposes a method of analysis which involves both the European background to travel literature and the specific Asian contexts of cultural encounter. An extremely wide range of European sources is discussed, including the often neglected but extremely important Iberian and Italian accounts of India. However, the book also discusses a number of non-European sources, Muslim and Hindu, thereby challenging simplistic interpretations of western "orientalism". In sum the book offers the extended and systematic treatment which the growing field of "cultural encounters" has so far been missing."--BOOK JACKET.
