The political life of India's princely states has often been described by their fly-in-amber quality. A closer look, however reveals that behind the 'oriental' facade, tremendous changes took place in the 20th century. This book follows up these changes in the princely state of Hyderabad during the time of its last ruler, Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan. The study concentrates on the changes brought about by enforced administrative reforms, by the transformation of the system of external relations in the wake of the round table conferences and by the political mobilisation of large sections of the population.
