Description : Description: English came to India with the East India Company in the seventeenth century. Lord Wellesley consolidated the rule of the East India Company around 1820 with his victories over the Marathas and Tipu Sultan. Hence the times were propitiate for the introduction of English language in India in education and administration. The two landmarks for the English Language Teaching in India were the famous Minute on Indian Education (1835) by Thomas Babington Macaulay and The Wood's Despatch (1858) by Charles Wood. Thereafter English became the most important subject of higher study in India. Much was written about the study and teaching of English Language and Literature in India both by the natives and English-men. English Language teaching even after achieving Independence (1947) is continuing as an important subject of study as India's window on the world. In spite of the importance of the subject, there has been no bibliographical control. Bibliography and documentation are important tools to provide the total intellectual output that was written and published in the field. They reveal the strengths and weaknesses of the subject. They are the pathfinders for the further study and research of the study. Lack of these tools is a bane to the teachers and scholars. There is no bibliography so far on English Language and Literature teaching in India. The editors with their long experience at CIEFL undertook this arduous work to fill-in the gap. It is a happy thing that this reference tool is published on the occasion of the completion of 40 years of the establishment of the Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages, Hyderabad and the Silver Jubilee of its deemed university status. It is hoped that this bibliography will be of great help to teachers, students and scholars in the field of ELLT.
