Lucknow has served as the backdrop for a number of historical and social studies, but not as a theme of exploration in itself. This book focuses on Lucknow and covers 250 years of its eventful history.

A set of 15 brilliantly researched essays discusses the strands that shaped the culture of the city as expressed in its arts, architecture, language and music. The volume represents a mature selection of some of the best contemporary scholarship on the history and culture of Lucknow.


It would certainly be useful for academics and scholars of history but will also interest lay readers.

Sociologists, political scientists, armchair aficionados: all would find something of abiding interest in this book.
