Among all the colourful figures of 18th century India, Claude Martin stands out as one of the most extraordinary. To read his letters, collected here for the first time, is to enter the mind of a man of the Enlightenment. Martin's acute insights into the turbulent times of the late 19th century throw new light on major events, including the 2nd Rohilla War and the foibles of Nawab Asaf-ud-daula of Awadh.
