Dale Riepe’s largely descriptive The Philosophy of India and Its Impact on American Thought (Springfield, IL: Charles C. Thomas, 1970) still represents the most extensive study of the history of Sanskrit in America, but Sanskrit is not the work’s central concern. Critically engaged writing on American interactions with Indian ideas may be found in Partha Mitter’s work on American Orientalism, and Susan Bean, Yankee India: American Commercial and Cultural Encounters with India in the Age of Sail, 1784–1860 (Salem: Peabody Essex Museum, 2001). I am grateful to Professor Mitter for sharing his unpublished work with me.
