    Revisionist Raj

    It has been said that history is written by the winners, but in this book Lawrence James proves that even history's losers sometimes get a chance to write, or in this case, revise history. Besides being maddeningly riddled by errors, Raj seems to suffer from its author's selective amnesia. In his study of British imperialism on the Indian subcontinent Mr James tirelessly attempts to romanticize and ennoble his country's motives and actions towards India. Now and then a British misdeed is presented in an effort to make the work seem balanced, but on the whole this book is little more than a piece of clever self-promotion designed to teach a new generation of British children about the glory, vision and moral superiority of their forebears.

    Mistake caught

    A mistake was caught in the prologue on page number 5 that 'Jahangir later had the Taj Mahal built.' It was not Jahangir but Shahjahan who had it built. After coming across a mistake in the prologue, it becomes a little difficult to believe other facts the book contains. However, it is an interesting book. The pictures are great!!!
