  1. Totally digging this facile and quickie skimming of England s empiric interaction with India pronounced Indjyah Raj redux History for the casual reader.


  2. A short history of the British Raj in India, this book is a very accessible version of the 350 year love hate relationship Though a noted academic, Prof Judd has managed to cram a lot of detail into a surprisingly short book The last chapter describing the exit of the British seemed somewhat rushed, and I would highly recommend Stanley Wolpert s Shameful Flight The Last Years of British Empire in India 2006 that covers this period in great detail.Necessary reading for those interested in this to [...]


  3. I found this a well written but cursory look at the history of the British Raj I guess if I was coming to the subject for the first time, I would probably give it 4 stars Since it was only around 225 pages, and covers than 300 years of history, I was probably unreasonable to expect .



  4. The Lion and the Tiger sums up British arrival, rule and exit from Indian subcontinent in just 200 pages and this is a sheer injustice with such a historically rich culture It had some useful information and at the same time just an ok read form me.


  5. an interesting overview of the British presence in India, I especially liked the first hand quotes from people of the period, I felt that was the most interesting.
