History

In 1990, the tricentenary celebration of the foundation of Calcutta by Job Charnok has drawn attention of many scholars to the various facets of the city in the form of books and monographs but none of these publications throw any searching light on its founders, that is, the servants of the East India Company. How were they chosen for service in Bengal? What were their social backgrounds? What was the nature of interlinked families created by them in Bengal? How did the Anglo-Indian or Eurasian community emerge in Bengal and how did its fortune relate to the circumstances and the interests of the Directors of the East India Company? How did the servants of the Company adjust their lives to the conditions in Bengal and how did these adjustments relate to the changes in the method of recruitment and the conditions of service in Bengal? These and many other related questions have been answered in the pages of the book. Meticulously researched on contemporary sources and written in a very clear, pleasant and lucid style, the book will be a welcome addition to any leading library in India and abroad.
