MEDIA REVIEWS

Macnamara, an Australian seeks to fill up a yawning gap with his focus on the viceroyalty of Lord Irwin.... The author has a clear perspective and takes up all the relevant issues backed up by the right kind of primary source materials.... On the whole, it is a scholarly work and offers much interesting information on the little-known subject.
