The nineteenth century is considered the high water mark of the colonial period in India. As increasing numbers of British citizens began to travel and conduct business in the country, the need for a comprehensive cultural guide became clear. Charles Acland's A Popular Account of the Manners and Customs of India fit the bill. For modern readers, the imperialistic tone can be somewhat disconcerting, but the volume's fascinating insight into Indian customs and traditions is worthy of attention.
