About this title

Synopsis:

A dramatic history of the formative years of the British Empire captures the events of the time through the lives of individuals who played a key role in the era and the objects they chose as memorials to their experiences, including a Palladian mansion filled with Western artifacts in Calcutta, a French archive of letters by a Mughal emperior, and other unique objects. 30,000 first printing.

Review:

"Spirited, teeming. . . . Jasanoff wants us to rethink the imperial experience." -The New York Times"Astute and moving. . . . As original--and beautifully written--as it is compelling to read." -The New York Sun"A historical tour de force, with wonderfully original and unusual material moulded into a convincing new narrative. Britain's empire will never look the same again."-The Guardian"Instead of concentrating on the 18th-and 19th-century European empire builders. . . . Jasanoff focuses on several ambitious, energetic, and eccentric men who used the East as a way to reinvent themselves....a fascinating and untold story." -The Boston Globe
