In this valuable new book, Shanti Jaywardene-Pillai tells the story of the Indians and the British, whom she refers to as the Indo-Britons, as they developed a mutual exchange of architectural, construction and design knowledge from the seventeenth century onwards, which umtimately led to the creation of a distinctive architecture in Southern Indian in the nineteenth century. Supplemented by more than 100 illustrations, photographs and maps, the book brings into view an entirely new perspective about an architecture which was as much richly indigenous as it was splendidly hybrid.
