Archaeological Survey of India. Annual Report, 1902/03.

Archaeological Survey of India. ANNUAL REPORT, 1902/03-.

Zug, Switzerland: Inter Documentation,
394 fiche

Annual reports of the Archaeological Survey of India discuss conservation and restoration work undertaken that year, descriptions of newly explored sites, excavations, new finds, and epigraphy. From 1904 to 1934 John Marshall held the post of Director-General of the Department. During this period the excavations at Harappa and Mohenjodaro revolutionized the perception of Indian civilization and culture. The results of the excavations confirmed that in the third millennium before Christ, the peoples of the Punjab and Sind had developed a relatively mature culture. The reports for 1902/03 to 1920/21 are arranged in two parts: administrative and scientific. Beginning in 1921/22, the reports include those of the various provincial archeological circles, formerly published separately.

Microfiche 1-15 contain an index to years 1902 to 1929. A table of contents and a list of plates appears at the beginning of each volume for 1930 to 1937.

Archaeological Survey of India. [Reports] New Imperial Series, V. 1-54.

ARCHAEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF INDIA. [REPORTS] NEW IMPERIAL SERIES, V. 1-54.

Zug, Switzerland: Inter Documentation,
597 fiche

The New Imperial Series includes archaeological work in India from 1874 to 1937. In 1871, the newly established Department of the Archaeological Survey of India began a country-wide search for all architectural and other remains characterized by their antiquity, beauty, or historic interest. In this series, James Burgess, responsible for the western districts, concentrates his attention on special classes of monuments, such as the Buddhist caves of western India, the Kankali Tila mound at Mathura, and the antiquities of the Bidar and Aurangabad districts. With the retirement of the director, Alexander Cunningham, in 1885 and the assumption by Burgess of the directorship, surveys of northern and southern India were placed in this series. The reports are monographic in format. Half of those issued between 1874 and 1902 were written by Dr. Burgess. In the early years, the survey teams focused on the discovery of Buddhist monuments. In later years this expanded to the documentation of Brahmanic, Jaina, and Islamic monuments.

Selected reels from the microfilmed records of the German Foreign Ministry Archives (1867-1920) relate to Russia and Rumania. Telegrams, letters, and reports describe Russian domestic and military affairs from March 20, to October 28, 1918. In the spring of 1918, Russia withdrew from World War I and began peace talks with Germany. On March 3, Russia and Germany signed the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. The Bolsheviks had gained control of the government, but during the summer, civil war continued between the Communists and the anti-Communists. Nicholas II and his family as well as Count von Mirbach, the German ambassador, were assassinated. The papers provide a German perspective on the events during that period. The National Archives title of this collection is Records of the German Foreign Office Received by the Department of State from the University of California (Project 1) and are part of their collection of Foreign Records Seized 1941-.

33 reel(s)

By 1848, when this collection of official correspondence begins, Britain had established a sphere of influence in China at Canton. She continued to extend that sphere in the face of competition from other European nations and Japan. Britain also faced considerable hostility from Chinese nationalists. This hostility resulted in the "Arrow" War, the Taiping Rebellion, and the Boxer Rebellion. By 1922, the nationalist Kuomintang party under Sun Yat-sen had overthrown the Manchu dynasty, established the Republic of China, and faced rebellions from local warlords and the Chinese Communists under Mao Tse-tung. The correspondence differs in focus, from specific incidents, such as an attack on British subjects, or specific subjects, such as railways in China, to general correspondence for a stated period.

The correspondence is grouped by subject. A list of correspondence appears at the beginning of each group.

Correspondence to and from British ministers to Japan dates from the relaxation of Japan's isolation policy through World War I. As the Japanese expanded their territorial influence, Great Britain and Japan forged a strong Anglo-Japanese alliance. England supported Japan in its bid against Russia for Korea and Manchuria. As an ally, Japan declared war on Germany in 1914, seizing German islands in the Pacific region. The relationship cooled after World War I as Great Britain and the United States formed a new coalition and Japan was not allowed to annex the seized German colonies. The correspondence deals with the establishment of a British consulate in Japan, the progress of trade agreements, commercial treaties, tariffs, the protection of British subjects, the relationship of Japan with other nations, and other diplomatic concerns.

The letters are arranged in chronological order. A list of correspondence at the beginning of each volume indicates the subject content.

2 reel(s)

The period of 1897 to 1919 saw an increasing nationalist agitation in British India. The Indian National Congress pressured Lord Curzon's colonial administration to grant Indians greater participation in the government. With their large contribution of men to the British army in World War I, Indian leaders expected additional reforms but were sorely disappointed. This disappointment made them receptive to Gandhi's non-cooperative movement. India's internal problems were compounded by conflict among Hindus, Muslims, and Sikhs. The titles of the materials in this collection are: Report of the 10th National Social Conference (1897), Report of the 13th National Social Conference (1899), Lahore Guide and Directory (1917), Islam and Ahmadism and Notes on Hindus and Sikhs (1895), Politico-Criminal Who's Who (1914), Political Trouble in India (1907-1917), and An Account of the Ghadi Conspiracy (1919).

HUMAN RELATIONS AREA FILES.

Ann Arbor, Mich: University Microfilms International, 1968
Human Relations Area Files

The Human Relations Area Files (HRAF) were developed to facilitate study, teaching, and research in the behavioral sciences, in area studies, and in the humanities. They should be especially valuable as a basis for world and comparative studies of human behavior, social life, and culture in the fields of anthropology, sociology, geography, politics, and psychology. The HRAF files are reputed to be one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of cultural data in existence and they cover approximately three hundred world cultures. The collection contains books, articles, unpublished manuscripts, and the results of field work. HRAF material includes many rare sources and many exclusive translations from foreign texts. HRAF's unique arrangement facilitates comparative studies.

An uncataloged guide, The Nature and the Use of HRAF Files, is available in the Special Collections Office. The collection is organized into separate Cultural Files, each of which corresponds to a cultural unit listed in the Outline of World Cultures (OWC). Within each cultural file the material is organized according to the subject classification system in the Outline of Cultural Materials (OCM). A complete list of the titles included in the collection is available in HRAF Source Bibliography. The researcher may also wish to consult the Index to the Human Relations Area Files and its supplement (1979). Users are encouraged to ask a Special Collections staff member for assistance in the use of this collection.

Zug, Switzerland: InterDocumentation, 1966
4458 fiche

Great Britain, in its colonial rule of India, initiated census studies at the beginning of the nineteenth century. By 1872, the census contained most of the essential demographic, social, and economic tables, although it still did not cover all the territories controlled by the British. The census of 1881 achieved a more complete coverage and a more extensive classification of demographic, economic, and social characteristics. Since 1881, a new census every ten years provides a relatively complete and continuous demographic record of the region. This collection attempts to collect all census records from 1872 to 1951 in one place, though little sub-provincial census material is included. A large body of anthropological literature has developed around the census.

Debates within the Legislative Assembly provide information on the social, political, and economic issues facing India in the provinces as well as on the national level. The period from 1921 to 1947 saw enormous and complex problems develop in India. On the national level, the issue of independence caused confrontation throughout the countryside between the British and Indian nationalists. Also, the questions of Indian participation in World War II and her status after the war were debated. Within the country, various religious groups competed for power and autonomy. All of this agitation had a crucial bearing on the political shape of the Indian subcontinent after independence.

The period covered by this collection saw the rise of Indian nationalism and the drive toward independence, which finally proved successful in 1947. But the growth of nationalism also saw an increasing rift between the majority Hindus, led by Gandhi and Nehru in the Congress Party, and the large Muslim minority organized under the Muslim League. This rift finally led to the creation of Pakistan in 1947. The Indian Annual Register is an digest of public activities in India. The material contains such items as proceedings of the Imperial and Legislative Councils, records of such political movements as the Indian National Congress, relations with their countries, as well as government memoranda and correspondence.

In 1885, representatives from all parts of India met for the first time in Bombay to discuss various issues concerning India and to offer recommendations to the British colonial administration. This collection provides summaries of the proceedings from the annual congresses until 1921. This period saw the administration of Lord Curzon succeeded by the Morley-Minto reforms with the India Councils Act of 1909. Many of these reforms and the rise of Indian nationalism grew out of the Indian National Congresses. The period also saw disruptions in colonial government created by World War I and the agitation for increasing self-rule after the war.
