“Sumathi Ramaswamy’s important book is sure to ignite fresh interest in the place of lost lands in the modern imaginary. Her fascinating account of the least known of these–Lemuria–breathes new life into the centrality of ‘labors of loss’ in nationalist historiography. In refusing to dismiss such narratives as eccentric and inconsequential, Ramaswamy compels scholars to look anew at the fabulous and occult in order to understand the shaping of scientific and colonial modernity. Impeccably researched and elegantly written, this is altogether a marvelous read.”–Gauri Viswanathan, Columbia University, author of Outside the Fold: Conversion, Modernity, and Belief
