For almost a century, the city of Poona (in the state of Maharashtra) served as the de facto capital of the Maratha Empire which dominated much of India's history in the eighteenth century. This work draws on a wide range of published and unpublished archival sources to provide a detailed picture of the city in all its aspects during the days of its rise and decline.
