French Traveler E. Valbezen about Englishmen in India in the Middle of the 19th Century

Autors: 
Overina G. Yu., Saratov State University
Abstract: 

This article examines the image of India, as it was seen by the French traveler. The author primarily focused at his perception of British colonial policy and its negative consequences for India. The rivalry between France and Britain resulted, among other things, in the critical approach toward the British style of governance in Indian colonies, which was perceived as outrageous and hard for the natives. Such image of Britain rest on the strong ground of competition between France and Britain in South-East Asia was pretty widespread in French society because of a number of critical publications in journals and newspapers. One of these publications is the subject of the author’s research represented in the article.
