Published originally as “The Indian Empire”, this present work is the third and the last edition of this classical work. This four volume set is a unique work as an exceptional system was adopted in compiling it. The principle adopted was to entrust each subject to an author best qualified to deal with it either by special study or official experience. All of this was originally edited by Sir William Wilson Hunter who formed the original plan of the work when it was designed as a single volume work. This expanded and enlarged work was divided in four sections – ‘Descriptive’, ‘Historical’, ‘Economical’, and ‘Administrative’. Each page of this work was submitted to the criticism and final approval for its authoritativeness and genuineness of the several Administrations and Departments concerned. The final version of the text was compiled and edited by Sir Herbert Risley at the time when he was the Census Commissioner of India. ‘INDIA AND THE INDIANS’ is a reference work of unsurpassed scholarship, one which no self-respecting library can afford to be without with collection on India or Indic studies.
