Description

An Extracts From the Preface dated 1st June, 1885 by the Author:
**************************************************
"When the first edition of this work appeared, two years ago, the dark cloud now threatening our Indian Empire was but little speck on the horizon, no bigger than a man's hand. Te book simply- to use the expression of the critics-told the story of how we had won India. We are now entering upon a period when we shall be called upon to defend the Empire we so greatly gained. Upon this point let there be no mistake in the public mind.

"This volume contains the story of the conquest of the several races of India by our countrymen. To this purpose are devoted eleven out of the twelve chapters of which it is composed. The remaining chapter, the first in order in the book, is the key to all others; for it records an event, but for the occurrence of which the battles which follow might have been indefinitely postponed. It was the victory of Paradis on the Adyar, over the army of the native ruler of the Karnatak, which inverted the position of the Europeans on the eastern coast and the children of the soil."
