 About the Book 

Examining the history of Lucknow, Oldenburg shows how the results of its transformation after the Mutiny of 1857 continue to pervade the city even today. Challenging conventional views of the extent of British intervention in India after the Mutiny, she contends that the supposedly neutral political, social, economic, and physical changes made in the city at that time constituted aggressive and purposive control of the population, and that these changes continue to be accepted by contemporary Indian administrators.
