THE BRITISH IN INDIA A Social History of the Raj

by | Read by Michael Page

History • 23.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Michael Page's pace may be a bit faster than your ear cares to follow, but this is a text that requires a brisk delivery. David Gilmore's narrative isn't a chronological history of one nation's domination over another, but dozens of individual histories of the British experience in India, stretching over centuries. The accounts are vivid, and what emerges is a highly detailed kaleidoscopic picture of Britain's long occupation. However, minus a central narrative, this is a text the mind can easily drift away from. Here, the narrator's voice is the sustaining element, and Page's precision and command of language, and his sheer stamina, are as expressive of British mettle and tenacity as the stories Gilmore tells.
