By 1813 the East India Company's dominions covered vast areas of India, confronting Britain with problems unprecedented in scale and complexity. A huge governing machinery was required, over a multitudinous population possessing a polity of their own and a sophistication far beyond the colonies in Africa. This book shows, partly in their own words, how the British rulers became aware of the problems, and how solutions were evolved.
