Description for Keeping the Jewel in the Crown: The British Betrayal of India
'Given the author, Walter Reid is a hugely admired and respected writer on military and political history whose research is incredibly impressive, his viewpoint should not be ignored. Keeping the Jewel in the Crown is an incredibly readable work of non-fiction that deserves to be read' * LoveReading.co.uk * 'an excellent and original work ... a meticulously researched, pioneering study that will appeal to many in both countries' * The Open (India) * 'It is a rare book that will alter the way you look at one of history's pivotal events and one of its greatest tragedies, but this is one of them' -- Matt Rubin * Washington Times * 'a thorough and hard-hitting account ... presented with clarity and sobriety' * BBC History Magazine * 'Reid's book makes for absorbing reading. He has the capacity to make his characters come out alive with all their human frailties. We are constantly reminded that imperialism, despite being such an awesome phenomenon, has had after all to operate through human agencies' * Outlook, New Delhi *
