Reviews

"A compulsively readable masterpiece. . . . Every chapter of The Last Mughal has historical echoes that are still desperately relevant today." --The New York Review of Books "Deeply researched and beautifully written. . . . A poignant account of the events of 1857 in Delhi." --The Nation"There is so much to admire in this book - the depth of historical research, the finely evocative writing, the extraordinary rapport with the cultural world of late Mughal India. It is also in many ways a remarkably humane and egalitarian history . . . This is a splendid work of empathetic scholarship." --David Arnold, Times Literary Supplement
