Description

Masks of Conquest

reveals how English studies introduced in India under British colonial rule came to be an effective form of political control, abetting voluntary cultural assimilation. Gauri Viswanathan argues that the literary text functioned as a mirror of the ideal Englishman and became a mask of exploitation that camouflaged the material activities of the colonizing British government.

Postgraduate students; teachers, and researchers in Post colonial theory and English literature courses.
