Men who ruled India could have gained a bit more of credibility by adding for 200 years to the title. That actually is the problem with the Raj period. It is close to us, it is personal to a lot of people, both British and Indians and some tend to forget that the men who ruled India go way back thousands of years.

British Raj was merely a blip.The idea of India as a Nation created by the Raj was orchestrated by the British to make the occupation comfortable for them. It was a fable. Travels and concerns of Shankaracharya conform to India of today as a Nation a millenium back. You read the old Sanskrit texts, like Mrichhakatikam, and realize that India as a Nation existed more than a thousand years back. Abu Rehan (Al Beruni) confirms that too.All this is the background against which Masons book has to be considered and judged. Thus considered, and judged, unfortunately the real review has to be short.

Mason is good with details and not so with conclusions. Nevertheless, please do read it for the references, if you are interested in that period of Indian history.
