Kingship and Colonialism in India's Deccan: 1850-1948 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Palgrave Macmillan US
Rejecting simplified notions of 'civilizational clashes', this book argues for a new perspective on Hindu, Muslim, and colonial power relations in India. Using archival sources from London, Delhi, and Hyderabad, the book makes use of interviews, private family records and princely-colonial records uncovered outside of the archival repositories.
