Historian David Gilmour has spent decades researching in archives and studying the papers of many people who have never been written about before to create a rich tapestry of three centuries of the British in India. The book examines viceroys and planters, soldiers and missionaries, doctors, merchants, engineers and teachers, those who fitted in with the image of the Raj and those who did not and brilliantly traces their relationships with the peoples of India.
‘This is the best kind of history: meticulously researched, elegantly and entertainingly written, and as wide in its sympathies as it is long in its reach’ The Spectator
