THE CHAOS OF EMPIRE: The British Raj and the Conquest of India.
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
New York: Public Affairs / Perseus Books, (2016). First edition - A "dramatic revisionist history, [which] 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. . . the Raj's institutions-from law courts to railway lines-were designed to protect British power without benefiting the people they ruled. This self-serving and careless governance resulted in an impoverished people and a stifled society, not a glorious Indian empire." Notes, bibliography. 549 pp.
Condition: Fine in glossy illustrated wrappers.
