Product description


Monumental . . . A remarkable achievement (Jan Morris, OBSERVER)

A scrupulously balanced and extremely readable chronicle . . . A book about cartography, achaeology, anthropology and several other things, as well as exploration and imperial lust (Geoffrey Moorhouse, GUARDIAN)

Terrific . . . Although this book is a big one, its pages race away (Nigel Jones, SUNDAY EXPRESS)

Entertaining, fluent and absorbing (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

Book Description

* Grand, sweeping, gripping narrative history at its best: an anecdotal, character-driven account of the race for empire in Asia that supersedes Peter Hopkirk's classic THE GREAT GAME
