The process of Rajput decadence, which commenced with the decline of the Mughal Empire, reached its zenith during the first two decades of the nineteenth century. The author examines the consequences of the interaction of the two unequal forces, i.e. the weak and degenerate states of western Rajputana-Jodhpur, Bikaner and Jaisalmer on the one hand and the growing and ever-expanding power of the East Indian Company on the other.

The story begins with the opening of the nineteenth century and ends with the suppression of the Great Rebellion in 1857. The author also explains how the paramount power resolved the interstate disputes and minimized interstate crimes by establishing the International Courts-thus giving law and order to the land of the warring Rajputs Tribes.
