The man who ruled India is a masterly distillation of Philip Mason's two classics, The Founders and The Guardians which were written soon after British withdrawal from the sub continent, when the sight and sound and smells of an area the size of Europe were still fresh in memory.

Book Description Rupa Publications India Pvt. Ltd.` 0. Softcover. Condition: New. The Men Who Ruled India depicts an India as seen from the eyes of the British. It is written in two volumes, The Founders in 1953 and The Guardians in 1954. The first volume takes the reader till the Great Indian Mutiny and volume two is the journey till Independence. It gives an overview of all the important events that occurred during the British Raj in India, laying stress on their analysis of how those on the ruling side dealt with them. It gives an insight into the lives of these men, who made choices and decisions sometimes with the best interest in mind and sometimes not. It chronicles the bravery as well as the simplicity of these men, who built bridges, laid railways, brought together a number of fiefdoms, and administered a strong judicial system. Having served in various parts of British ruled India as a colonial officer in the Indian Civil Services, Philip Mason was a prolific writer and an intellectual. He enjoyed a peaceful stay as Deputy Commissioner of Garhwal in 1937, and also saw India through its most politically tortuous state while serving in Hyderabad during 1947. After heading back to London, he was the founder and director of Institute of Race Relations, which today functions as an anti-racist think tank. He retired in 1958 and wrote again. Few of his famous works include A Matter of Honour, a well received history of the Indian Army, Kipling: the Glass, the Shadow and the Fire, Skinner of Skinner`s Horse, The English Gentleman, Call the Next Witness, and his autobiography, A Shaft of Sunlight.
