E. M. Forster's 1924 masterpiece, A Passage to India, is a novel that tackles the thorny notions of preconceptions and misconceptions through characters' desire to overcome the barrier that divides East and West in colonial India. Here we see the limits of liberal tolerance, good intentions, and good will as we try to sort through the common problems that exist between two very different cultures. But Forster's India is a country where the English and Indians stare at each other across a cultural divide and a history of imbalanced power relations, mutual suspicion, and ill will. A fresh reader must wonder whether connection is possible at all. A Passage to India begins simply enough: with people genuinely desiring to connect and to overcome the stereotypes and biases that have divided the two cultures. Mrs. Moore accompanies her future daughter-in-law, Adela Quested, to India where both are to meet Mrs. Moore's son Ronny, the City Magistrate. From the outset, Adela makes it clear that she wishes to see the "real India" and Mrs. Moore soon befriends and Indian doctor named Aziz. Cyril Fielding, an Englishman and the principal of a local government college, soon becomes acquainted with everyone and it is his tenuous friendship with the Indian Dr. Aziz that really constitutes the backbone of this novel. While it is true that the primary characters take great pains to accept and embrace difference, their misunderstanding, fear and ignorance made that connection far more difficult than they expected. Getting to know the "real" India proves to be a daunting and challenging task. The bulk of this perhaps falls to Dr. Aziz, who soon learns that the indignities of life under British rule and the insults--unintentional and intentional--of his English acquaintances make him suspect that although genuine friendship may be desired, the two cultures are not yet ready.

The greatness of E.M. Forster's fifth and last novel, A Passage to India, rests in part on its agility. It is at once political tract, personal memoir, philosophical meditation, comedy of manners, mystery, even ghost story. It accommodates the workings of reason and the supernatural, the sensibilities of West and East, the experiences of conqueror and subject. It is a colonial as well as a postcolonial text, a participant in both the realist and modernist traditions. In her ample, well-furnished response to Forster's masterpiece, Judith Scherer Herz combines a political and historical reading with one focusing on narrative technique. This unusual approach allows for a rich accounting of the multitude of forces at work in the novel, enabling her to determine as precisely as possible the events, beliefs, values, and cultural assumptions that inform it. The reasons for the British presence in India, the extent of their power over the Indians, the many and complex reactions of the Indians to that power, the role and reliability of Forster's narrator as arbiter and truthteller, the extent to which that narrator gives voice to Forster's personal experience of India - all are brought to light in Herz's analysis. This assessment of the book's more tangible elements is complemented by Herz's recognition of its intangible elements, its ghosts, those presences that exist within its imaginative world but not necessarily on the page. The novel's "ghost story," Herz writes, "occurs in the spaces of the primary text; in dreams, memories, old photographs, and flashes of intuition that do not quite resolve." While some critics have dealt with the supernatural in Forster's work, Herz is the first to use the idea of the ghost story to come to grips with the essential elusiveness and secrecy of A Passage to India. Herz's willingness to explore the least chartered, least expressible territory of the novel, coupled with her informed criticism of the primary text, sets her work apart from other Forster studies to date.

This book traces the first faltering steps taken in the mathematical theorisation of infinity which marks the emergence of modern mathematics. It analyses the part played by Indian mathematicians through the Kerala conduit, which is an important but neglected part of the history of mathematics. Passage to Infinity: Medieval Indian Mathematics from Kerala and its Impact begins with an examination of the social origins of the Kerala School and proceeds to discuss its mathematical genesis as well as its achievements. It presents the techniques employed by the School to derive the series expansions for sine, cosine, arctan, and so on. By using modern notation but remaining close to the methods in the original sources, it enables the reader with some knowledge of trigonometry and elementary algebra to follow the derivations. While delving into the nature of the socio-economic processes that led to the development of scientific knowledge in pre-modern India, the book also probes the validity or otherwise of the conjecture of the transmission of Kerala mathematics to Europe through the Jesuit channel. The book straddles two domains: science and social sciences. It will appeal to those interested in mathematics, statistics, medieval history, history of science and technology, links between mathematics and culture and the nature of movements of ideas across cultures.
