British India and British Scotland, 1780-1830: Career-Building, Empire-Building, and a Scottish School of Thought on Indian Governance
“This [book] holds significance for scholars of intellectual history in the fields of both Britain and British colonial India. It shows well how the Scottish educational system, based on the Scottish Enlightenment, shaped the thinking and promotion rate of three important officials in the East India Company throughout their influential careers.” —Michael Fisher, Oberlin College
“This is a valuable contribution to the field of British imperialism in South Asia. Scholars interested in the English-Scottish relations during this period, especially as they pertain to the empire, will also likely read this with profit.” —Lynn Zastoupil, Rhodes College
