About the Authors
  • Sir John Malcolm (1769–1833) was a diplomat and administrator in India. He arrived there in 1783 as a cadet in the East India Company, was quickly promoted, and soon moved into political and diplomatic roles where his linguistic skills proved extremely useful. In 1799 he was dispatched to Persia by Lord Wellesley, and concluded two important treaties. He returned to India in 1801 and towards the end of his career became the governor of Bengal (1827–1830). He wrote several books on India and Persia, including this two-volume history, published in 1826, which documents the period Malcolm himself had spent in India. Volume 1 incorporates content from Malcolm's earlier Sketch of Political India (1811). It covers British expansion into Indian territory during the administrations of Lord Cornwallis, Sir John Shore, Marquess Wellesley, Lord Minto and the Marquess of Hastings, while Volume 2 discusses the changing nature of British rule.
