By George Bruce Malleson. Colonel G.B. Malleson’s definitive history of the mutiny against British rule in India is more than just a narrative of the dreadful events of 1857 and the insanity of colonialism, but also provides now-suppressed insights into race, racial psychology and the true causes of interracial conflict.

Using official documents, personal letters and private journals of those involved, Malleson tells the story of the massacre of the Europeans at Cawnpore, the siege of Delhi and the final relief of Lucknow.

The real value of this work, however, lies in his description of race as a factor in the creation of the British Empire and the ultimate incompatibility of European culture and civilization with that of the Third World.

As Malleson wrote: “It was a question of race. This race of ours has been gifted by Providence with the qualities of manliness, of endurance, of a resolution which never flags . . . The determining cause of the Mutiny of 1857 was the attempt to force Western ideas upon an Eastern people.”
