Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from A Short History of India and of the Frontier States of Afghanistan, Nipal, and Burma IT is a common complaint that whilst the annals of India are of paramount importance to the people of England, there is no history which they seem less inclined to study. Greece and Rome, Egypt and Palestine, Assyria and Babylon - countries which have long ceased to play a part in the drama of humanity - are the subjects of text-books in our schools and universities whilst India, which is literally a modern re ex of the ancient world, and has moreover become a part and parcel of. The British empire, is to this day a sealed book to the masses. The essays of Lord Macaulay on Robert Clive and Warren Hastings are perhaps known to every English household; but they refer to mere episodes in the history, and are wanting in that familiarity with native character and forms of thought, which is essential to a right appreciation of the great collision between Europe and Asia that has been going on in India for the last two centuries.
