Starting in the 18th century, this book reveals a process of knowledge-transfer that involved not only Indian nationalist scientists but also Europeans (East India Company surgeons and surveyors) - the initial practiconers of modern science in India. In doing so it highlights the fact that the marginality of colonial scientific experience, like the battles to overcome it, could be located at diverse cultural sites. This book spans a period of about 170 years, from 1780 to 1950m and traverses several institutions. These include the Asiatic Society, the Geological Survey of India, the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, and the Bose Institute. It also looks acutely at the work of individuals such as Henry Piddington, Thomas Holland, Frederick Cobyn, Hugh Falconer, Mahendralal Sircar, J.C. Bose, P.C. Ray, and M.N. Saha.
