"Meticulously researched and vividly written, this book will contribute to debates on the nature of colonial rule in nineteenth-century India, the origins and nature of anti-colonial violence, and the events of 1857. A compelling story, richly peopled, and filled with drama and incident." -- Sunil Amrith, Mehra Family Professor of South Asian Studies, Harvard University

Kim A. Wagner is Senior Lecturer in British Imperial History, Queen Mary, University of London. He has written three previous books on Thuggees and on the 1857 Uprising.
