This scholarly work examines the origin and foundation of a regional linguistic based cultural identity which gave birth to Andhra Pradesh, the first linguistic state formed in India after Independence.

Telugu has been a distinguished language for over a millennium with a rich extant literature dating to the eleventh century. Nevertheless, not until the nineteenth century did the language come to define the cultural identity of a geographically based population. The author Peter L. Schmitthenner demonstrate that a key stimulant to shaping this new identity was the work of nineteenth century European Indologist Charles Philips Brownthrough uncovering the diverse influences that shaped Brown's scholarly career and examining the complex nature of his scholarship the author exposes the view that the modern Telugu identity arise from a complex dialogue between orient lists and indigenous voices.
