This work(in two volumes is an absorbing and informative account of Central India. The author, Sir John Malcolm, has attempted a very minute and first hand account of the region which reveals it both in depth and on personal level. The book contains the collection of facts illustrative of the genuine history and character of the natives of central India and is a clear and complete exposition of the times the author had set himself to chronicle.

The book offers a balanced history of the region and also provides a fascinating account of British imperial relations with the princely states. It is thus a work of great historical importance and would interest historians, anthropologists, sociologists, scholars and general readers.
