The Anglo-Indians by S. Muthiah, Harry MacLure, Richard O'Connor

Muthiah traces the origins and growth of four generations of Anglo-Indians. He combines meticulous research and a descriptive-analytical approach with a style enlivened by personal anecdote and imagery… If one had to choose just two books on the Anglo-Indians community. One would be this magnum opus of Muthiah's brilliantly conceptualized and executed… Muthiah-has chronicled our history, a legacy we can bequeath to our children and our children's children… This history will rekindle in Anglo-Indians wherever they are, pride in themselves and pride in our extraordinary community.
