Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of James Tod's publications. Tod's work is a particularly good case study of the relationship between the imperatives of empire and the process of historical construction because it arises out of the early colonial milieu, and contributes itself very much to the processes of empire building. What makes Tod and his Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan unique, however, is the lasting effect the work has come to have. The Annals has taken on a life of its own far outside the context of empire, and, in an ironic twist, served the ends of anti-imperialist, nationalist discourse in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century India.
