India through the ages; a popular and picturesque history of Hindustan by Flora Annie Webster Steel( Book )

28 editions published between 1908 and 2017 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

India Through the Ages: A Popular and Picturesque History of Hindustan by Flora Annie Steel. A history, above all one which claims to hold no original research, but simply to be a compilation of the work of others, needs no introduction save the compiler's thanks to many who have been consulted. One word, however, may be said regarding the only accent used--the circumflex. This is put always on the tone of stress; that is to say, on the syllable to be accented. Thus Mâlwa, Ambêr, Jeysulmêr, Himâlya, Vizigapatâm. Where no accent appears the syllables are of equal value. Hindustan is derived from the Modern Persian word Hindu. In Old Persian, the region beyond the Indus River was referred to as Hindus, hence Modern Persian Hind, Hindu. This combined with the Iranian suffix-stan results in Hindustan, "land of the Indus". 1st century BCE, the term "Hein-tu" was used by Chinese. Term came into common use under the Mughals who referred to their dominion, centered on Delhi, as 'Hindustan'

A Raj collection( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The four novels in this volume, together, span the entire period of Raj Literature, offering a vivid portrait of colonial India from the time of Kipling to Indian Independence. They trace the changing relationship between the rulers and the ruled from the heyday of the Empire to its demise in 1947, and add to our understanding of the British and their predicament in India." "All novels have been out of print for several years and almost impossible to procure. The decision to revive these is based largely on the continued fascination with Anglo-Indian writing and its growing importance in critical postcolonial discourses." "Prepared with the general reader in mind, this anthology should also fascinate students of English literature and all those interested in colonial history and constructions of race and gender."--BOOK JACKET
