Two hundred years ago, Delhi has been a great and imperial city for a century, with anything between one and two million inhabitants. It was the largest and most renowned city, not only of India, but of all the East from Constantinople to Canton. The purpose of this study is to trace the history of Delhi from the time that it ceased to be the capital of Mughul India until it became a completely British city after the Mutiny in 1858.The stoy of Delhi during these years is not one of weaklings or mountebanks, creeping amidst deceit and subterfuge, but of strong men lusting for power. It is a story of men throwing away successively in the heat of that passion everything that could make that power worth having, and mutually sqauandering the resources for which they were all contending. The nemesis of these men was the nemesis not of weakness but of strength unallied to principle, not of idealism but of power politics.The first part of the book is a sketch of the Kingdom of Delhi until its conquest by the company in 1803. The second part of the book consists of a series if studies on the Delhi city and territory under British Administration from 1803-1857. This part fall into three sections. Printed Pages: 279 with 1 folded map.
