This book provides readers with a vivid picture of how South Asians were perceived by many in Britain in the mid-nineteenth century, as well as of life in Sindh under the Amirs, rulers of the region at that time. McMurdos description indicates the bias and prejudice of an imperialist viewpoint and the political ramifi cations of such perceptions. At the time of Charles Napiers conquest of Sindh in 1843, the British government launched an adverse propaganda campaign aimed at depicting the Amirs as being incapable of looking aft er their own territories. This account can be counted as a part of this campaign. The book refl ects the broad political canvas of that time and prepares the backdrop for the eventual conquest of Sindh.
