Beschreibung

From the early 16th century to the eve of the Indian Mutiny, the "white Mughals" who wore local dress and adopted Indian ways were a source of embarrassment to successive colonial administrations. This book uncovers a world unexplored by history, and places at its centre a tale of betrayal.

Autorentext

William Dalrymple's first book, In Xanadu, won the Yorkshire Post Best First Work Award. His second, City of Djinns, won the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award and the Sunday Times Young British Writer of the Year Award. His third, From the Holy Mountain, was shortlisted for the Duff Cooper Prize and the Thomas Cook Award. A collection of his pieces about India, The Age of Kali, was published in 1998.

Klappentext

Quirky piece of history writing from an award-winning travel writer. From the author of "In Xanadu" and "From The Holy Mountain". Looks at the expatriates who embarrassed the colonial administrators by adopting Indian ways and modes of dress. "Dalrymple's India is as vivid as Naipaul's" "The Times".



Zusammenfassung
From the author of the Samuel Johnson prize-shortlisted `Return of a King', the romantic and ultimately tragic tale of a passionate love affair that transcended all the cultural, religious and political boundaries of its time.
