This work is a masterly distillation of Mason's two classics, The Founders and The Guardian which were written after British withdrawal from the sub-continent. From the days of the first English arrivals in India at the turn of the sixteenth century right through to independence, Mason vividly chronicles the lives of men who fought and conducted a love affair with the most cherished jewel of the British Empire.
I know of no historian in any field who has written more superbly, or with more instinct for his subject.
