Kingship and Colonialism in India’s Deccan 1850–1948
Rejecting simplified notions of 'civilizational clashes', this book argues for a new perspective on Hindu, Muslim, and colonial power relations in India. Using archival sources from London, Delhi, and Hyderabad, the book makes use of interviews, private family records and princely-colonial records uncovered outside of the archival repositories.
