Biography: historical, political & military

Born of Euro-Indian heritage and due to inherit a principality in Northern India, Dyce Sombre was raised by a Muslim courtesan, served as an MP in London and wandered Europe as he fought insanity charges brought by his English wife. This book recovers Sombre's story and the echoes of his case for modern conceptions of race, privilege and empire.
