The Arthur Crawford Scandal

Governance, Corruption, and Indian Victims

Ambassador Michael Metelits

  • The Crawford scandal is well known in India, less so elsewhere. This book goes behind the scenes in portraying how Indian colonial bureaucracy and legal systems promoted differing views of "justice".
  • The book addresses shortcomings in the legal system in late 19th century India.
  • The book also details how a political pressure campaign in London led to a decision that solved problems in London, rather than in Bombay.
