New. This volume, the second in the series Islam in South Asia, introduces certain aspects of the India`s response to the West. It also includes Travel literature which is becoming increasingly important, because Cultural theorists treat them as serious little jigsaw Puzzles of ethnography, Anthropology and social and cultural history. Our contention is that while scholars in the West engage in constructing their Epistemology of Islam, it is about time Muslim scholars start constructing their own epistemology of the West by turning to the travel documents that carry us into a wider world and often possess a penetrating quality in them. This volume includes the travelogues of Mirza Abu Taleb, the pioneer travel writer, and Lutfullah. Printed Pages: 306
