A more balanced account of a controversial subject!,
This review is from: Raj: The Making and Unmaking of British India (Paperback)
Raj offers a very good account of the 'making and unmaking' of the British in India in an informative style. This is supported by less heavy reading in the form of comparison to the 'film and fiction' of the time, mainly adventure films of young men making their fortune in India.
This allows the reader to separate fact from fiction in their own mind and the conclusion of the book allows the reader to appreciate the achievements of the Raj but understand why it had to end.
A very good book, do buy it!
