  • The first book to examine the proposition that Irish public servants in India were moved by their 'Irishness' to subvert or eccentrically implement policies of the Raj
  • Essential reading for those wishing to understand the three-way interaction between the Irish, the empire and the peoples of India
  • Challenges the idea that the Irish in Asia had less influence than those who emigrated to the settled Dominions such as Canada and Australia
