Clive was the greatest British figure in the history of British India. Nirad's study of Clive's strange and elusive temperament has a special authority. It derives from his unique insight into the bizarre society which Clive came to shape and influence. The author maintains that no previous biographer or historian of the British Empire has assembled the facts of Clive's career and near miraculous achievement in an objective way, free of didactic assumptions. A thought-provoking and profoundly important work.
