The Golden Book Of India

Description It is a dictionary of the family tree and biographical accounts of ruling prices and chief of Indian states during the overall rule of the British Empire in India. It also contains a catalogue of various titles held by their respective native rulers and their annotated meaning in English. This glossary of titles and names and brief biographical notes familiarizes the reader with the feudal system of governance of states during the colonial rule and the overall supremacy of their colonial masters. Most of these titles were given to native provincial rulers for the services rendered to their colonial masters. It is a good reference network for researchers of 18th-19th Indian history. The British compiler calls it a "Golden Book of India" which smacks of his colonial mindset.[edit]
