The India Office Records document the activities of the English East India Company and the British administration in India, and this guide offers an unusual historical perspective on environmental science in the British Empire. The result of a three-year research project, Science and the Changing Environment in India, 1780–1920 makes a wealth of material from the records newly accessible—explaining their organization, providing the environmental and archival document contexts, and outlining the history of British scientific involvement in India during this rich and tumultuous period of cultural collision.
