Product description


A very attractive (and largely forgotten) moment of cultural interaction and cross-over: what Salman Rushdie has called 'chutnification' ... Muzaffar Alam and Seema Alavi's remarkable book is a wonderful window into the complexities of the inter-cultural exchanges of the period ... It is a strange and wonderfully exotic world, full of surprises ... Alam and Alavi deserve to be warmly applauded for bringing the world of Antoine Polier back to life. (William Dalrymple, Times Literary Supplement)
