THE CHAOS OF EMPIRE: The British Raj and the Conquest of India
In this dramatic revisionist history, the author upends the carefully sanitized image of unity, order, and success to reveal an empire rooted far more in violence than in virtue, far more in chaos than in control. It traces Britain's imperial rule from the East India Company's first transactions in the 1600s to Indian independence in 1947. Photos, some in color.
