Exploring the prolific output of a diverse assortment of theologians, missionaries, Buddhists, theosophists, and others, this study investigates the German intellectual fascination with India from the founding of the Second Reich in 1871 to its demise in 1918. Perry Myers provides new insights into how Germany's imagining of India became entangled in religious re-modeling, nationalist politics, and a revolutionary change in social scientific models. As he shows, German thinkers of the period framed their domestic religious, social, and political debates through a historical looking-glass, drawing upon another cultural tradition to try to understand not India itself, but rather the internal cultural dynamics of Wilhelmine Germany.
