This book constitutes an important challenge to those who have attributed the emergence of distinct ethnic identities in Sri Lanka to the impact of colonial rule and consequent modernisation. Arguing that such a claim has been overly reliant on written sources, Roberts turns to verbal compositions, poetry, visual-iconic, kinesic and dramatic communications to establish the existence of a Sinhala consciousness, which predates British rule and which was implanted not simply amongst the political elite. The latest book by Dr. Michael Roberts of the University of Adelaide, Australia.
