This book deals with the rise of Lucknow to grandeur during the Nawab days, the trials and tribulations of its populace during the mutiny, and the conflicts which emerged as part of Lucknow's transformation into a colonial city. Its rise to political pre-eminence after independence, the large-scale influx of refugees and migrants, and the changing fortunes of its erstwhile elite are also covered.
