Aryans and British India
In this landmark study, Thomas Trautmann delves into the intellectual accomplishments of the languages and nations concept in British India, as well as the darker politics of race hatred which emerged out of it. He challenges the racial hypothesis through a powerful analysis of the feeble evidence upon which it is based. Issued for the first time in paperback format, this edition includes a new Preface in which the author discusses further ideas on the understanding of the Aryan theory and the languages and nations project, as well as the new scholarship supporting such ideas. The new preface also discusses the Aryan debate in contemporary India, which looks for a link between Aryans, Sanskrit, the Veda and the Indus Valley Civilization, and which has in recent times broadened into a tremendously politicized controversy. A compelling and carefully researched work, Aryans and British India has become mandatory reading, since its first publication in 1997, for historians, political scientists and commentators, anthropologists, and linguists, as well as scholars and students of cultural studies.

Review: Aryans And British IndiaUser Review - Dan - Goodreads
This was a very good treatment of the development of what Trautmann calls the racial theory of Indian civilization. It's a dense subject, but Trautmann does a very good job making his arguments clear and readable. Trautmann shows a great command of the linguistics required for these arguments. Read full review
Review: Aryans and British IndiaUser Review - Aaron - Goodreads
An exploration of the intersection of colonialism, scholarship, and "native" knowledge in the transformation of the "Aryan" idea from a linguistic concept to a racial concept. If you're the type of person who reads Max Müller for fun, you'll dig this. Read full review
