Details

Although British traders had been present in India since the 17th century, the subcontinent was under direct rule for just 90 years, from 1857 to 1947. This study focuses on the 20 aristocratic men who wielded supreme power as Viceroy – literally the monarch’s deputy – from Charles Canning to Louis Mountbatten. It assesses their characters, policies, achievements and failures, and examines the continuing influence of this autocratic system of government in both Britain and India today.
