Product description


'A masterly and accessible account ... superbly researched, with sources ranging from Scottish missionary teachers' letters to classified US intelligence records and packed full of extraordinary characters straight out of a James Bond novel. The book has great relevance to today's Asia; anyone with an interest in India and China's complex relationship should read this enthralling book' -- Prajwal Parajuly, author of The Gurkha's Daughter 'Those who fantasise about Shangri-La will find this book a fascinating requiem for their dreams' * Country Life * 'Andrew Duff masterfully weaves together the many strands of the unfolding drama to produce a gripping page-turner' * The Hindu * 'Andrew Duff draws out the remarkable story of Sikkim's annexation and its last king through not just extensive historical research but fascinating human stories' * DNA India * 'Clearly the most comprehensive account so far of Sikkim's fall... a masterly skill in story-telling' * Calcutta Telegraph * 'An enthralling retelling of the Sikkim tragedy' -- Pass Blue * Barbara Crossette * 'Andrew Duff's book is a remarkable piece of detective work. In addition to the fascinating human stories Duff relates, the book is a very valuable addition to how the Cold War played out in South Asia, and to the history of the foreign policies of China, India and the US ... that it is exceptionally well-written makes it all the more compelling to read' - Michael Burleigh, author of Small Wars, Faraway Places
