The Demetrios Galanos: His life and unknown work in India by Dr. Miltiadis Spyrou is available from ELINEPA Publications.

Written in a clear and understandable way for the average reader, the book by Miltiadis Spyros brings to light unknown facts from the life of the forerunner of Greek Indology Dimitrios Galanos the Athenian (1760-1833) that overturn the image we have had of him until now, as a retired intellectual. Galanos, through his actions and the letters he publishes in Indian newspapers under the pseudonym “Philanthropos”, emerges as a humanitarian and a genuine child of the European Enlightenment, who supports the liberation of his homeland and the defense of human rights in the country that he lives. A pioneering study of highest interest addressed to scholars of history, sociology, anthropology and Indology.
