From the Jacket:

Indology : Past, Present and Future is a compilation of seminar papers in which scholars of India as well as abroad have discussed at length the state of Indology in the past, present and future. Indology which has a history of a little over two hundred years, started and nurtured in the west. It arrived in India along with a few other imported ideologies with the package of modern higher education during the pre-independence period. Since then, a new current of indigenous Indology joined the main current.

With the explosion of knowledge, however, Indology is experiencing a low ebb both in the West as well as in India. Science and technology being the areas of priority in a developing nation like India, Indology and other humanities are bound to have been scaled down in the curricula on different levels. Indology will, as any other discipline, take cognizance of the changing face of the world and to adapt itself to the prevailing situation. Some papers of the volume dealt with the fundamental theme of Indology and some devoted to the status reports on Indology in different countries such as USA, Brazil, Russia, Poland, China and Australia. The topics selected for the seminar offered a wide range of problems based on Indology, which is not embracing all aspects of Indian culture. This collection will enable researchers of India and West to work together rather than against each other.
