This omnibus consists of popular works by three authors specializing in the history and culture of one of India's premier cities during colonial rule. They examine the complex relationship between the British and the Nawabi, which resulted in the legendary grandeur and sophistication of Lucknow. Taken together, these three well-researched books provide different yet complementary points of view on the history and culture of Lucknow. Lucknow:The Last Phase of an Oriental Culture by Abdul Halim Sharar describes the culture and way of life of the people during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In a Fatal Friendship: The Nawabs, the British and the City of Lucknow, Rosie Llewellyn-Jones examines the fascinating interaction between two cultures-the British and the Nawabi. The Making of Colonial Lucknow by Veena Talwar Oldenburg, challenges conventional views about the extent of British intervention in India after the Mutiny.
