9780521526135: Travel and Ethnology in the Renaissance: South India through European Eyes, 1250-1625 (Past and Present Publications)

This book, first published in 2000, is a major contribution to the study of the encounter between Europeans and non-Europeans in the early modern period and to a neglected aspect of the cultural transformation of Europe throughout the Renaissance. The book proposes a novel approach to the study of European attitudes towards non-Europeans.

Review:

'A startling new study of the transforming effects of Indian travel on European culture.' Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, The Independent Weekend Review (Book of the Year)

'… [an] impressively erudite, well researched, and eloquently written book'. Peter Burke, University of Cambridge

'… a work of great erudition and high quality. It is impressive both in the range and closeness of its reading of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century European accounts of south India, and in the analytical power with which they are discussed. This really does seem to me an important and original contribution to our understanding of the development of European perceptions of the non-European world.' Sir John Elliott, University of Oxford

'… an accomplishment of stunning intellectual and scholarly proportions. It is unique in its effective conceptualisation of a vast cultural terrain, its breathtaking comprehensiveness, and the sensitivity with which the author reads texts … The range of materials studied, most unknown to the ordinary, intelligent reader, alone makes the work something that will long command the field.' John M. Headley, The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

'… brilliant' Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, The Times Literary Supplement (Book of the Year)

'Rubies's book is an erudite, engaging and lucid account of travel writing in the Renaissance, particularly with regard to South India. Its lightly worn scholarship allows the reader to engage with the sheer diversity of individual representation.' Dilip Menon, The Hindu

'A richly textures book of great scholarship, which breaks down the walls separating 'Indian' and 'European' history.' The Book Review

'… an intelligent guidebook for anyone who has cause to refer to Renaissance travel writing … it is hoped that it will receive a much larger readership than that.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History

'… it will rekindle an interest in some of the most exciting and interesting examples of early European writing.' Journal of Imperial & Commonwealth History

'… deep and thought-provoking …' E-Journal of Portuguese History

From the Publisher:

This book, first published in 2000, 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 analyses 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. An extremely wide range of European sources is discussed, including the often neglected but extremely important Iberian and Italian sources. However, the book also discusses a number of non-European sources, Muslim and Hindu, thereby challenging simplistic interpretations of western 'orientalism'.
