The history of Bengal; from the first Mohammedan invasion until the virtual conquest of that country by the English, A.D. 1757 by Charles Stewart( Book )

27 editions published between 1813 and 2013 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After a military career with the East India Company, Charles Stewart (1764-1837) focused his attention on the study of oriental languages. Following his return to England in 1806, he assumed the professorship of Arabic, Persian and Hindustani at the East India College in Hertfordshire. His scholarly achievements include an 1809 catalogue of the library of Tipu Sultan of Mysore, and this work, published in 1813, which formed the first serious study in English of the history of Bengal. The book is split into six sections. The first five cover the early Islamic conquests and dynasties from the ninth century onwards. The bulk of the book then covers the Mughal era and ensuing period of independent nawabs, providing also a detailed assessment of the events leading up to the Battle of Plassey in 1757 and the beginning of British dominance

Exploring the West : three travel narratives( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This omnibus presents a unique perspective of travel writing by Indians describing Europe during the 18th and 19th century. This theme provides the missing link in the east-west paradigm. Whereas the other aspect of the western perspective on Indian civilization has been studied for quite some time, the descriptions of this omnibus invert this image and show Europe in the eyes of the Indian traveller during the arrival of modernity in the subcontinent
