Contents: Preface. 1. Introduction. 2. Consolidation of the British rule. 3. Third Mysore War. 4. Administrative reforms. 5. Oudh affairs. 6. Army administration. 7. Judicial reforms, 1790-92. 8. Criminal justice. 9. The District Officer. 10. Land administration. 11. The assessment. "Lord Cornwallis is the first ruler who can properly be regarded as an administrator. Upto the time of his arrival in India, the English in India had been engaged in a great struggle for existence. Clive conquered the richest province of India. Hastings reduced it to something like order. But it was not until Cornwallis carried to the country the large-minded liberality of a benevolent English statesman, that the administrative efforts took shape and consistency and the entire internal management of the country under British rule was regulated by a code of written laws (or regulations) intended to confer upon the Natives of India the benefits of as much European wisdom and benevolence as was compatible with a due regard for the character of Native institutions. "This book vividly portrays Lord Cornwallis and his rule in India. The authentic information contained herein will be of reliable reference value to the students, teachers and historians in the field." (jacket) No. 27537 390 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 43544
