Rejecting simplified notions of 'civilizational clashes', this book argues for a new perspective on Hindu, Muslim, and colonial power relations in India in the Nineteenth and early Twentieth centuries. Using archival sources from London, Delhi, and Hyderabad, in English, Urdu, and Telugu, the book makes use of interviews and private family records as well as princely-colonial records uncovered outside of the archival respositories.
