Jakob de Roover in 2010

For the record, Jakob de Roover is Belgian.  I had the pleasure of meeting him in New Jersey a few years ago.

Jakob wrote this in 2010:
To someone who has no first-hand experience of the academic study of India in the US, it must be difficult to imagine the number of young scholars who say things like ‘this is what I really think, but I will not say it in public, because I’m up for tenure’. By the time they receive tenure, they have usually conformed to the orthodoxy.
