Journalism and television have given us a rough idea of the monstrosities but none at all of the marvels. I can only hope to define the first more clearly and to persuade anyone interested that the second is to be found there too. Geoffrey Moorhouse succeeds triumphantly in his aims. First published in 1971, this title has stood the test of time. Remarkably it was the first full-length study of Calcutta, seat of the British Raj, since 1918. The book is organized out of a profound understanding of the true issues and is brilliantly executed - Paul Scott, Guardian.
