William Dalrymple


In The Last Mughal, William Dalrymple delves into the fall of the Mughal Empire, using new sources to reveal the plight of Bahadur Shah Zafar II, the last Mogul emperor. Set in 1862 Rangoon, the book follows Zafar’s life as a skilled calligrapher and poet, who was reduced to a mere figurehead by the British East India Company. As the sepoy mutiny of 1857 unfolded, Zafar, powerless to resist, was declared the king of India only to witness the British capture Delhi and leave the city in ruins. Through Dalrymple’s meticulous research, this revelatory account sheds light on one of history’s bloodiest upheavals, and has won prestigious awards such as the Duff Cooper Prize and the Vodafone Crossword Book Award. Published in May 2007, this paperback edition of The Last Mughal is a compelling exploration of a pivotal era in Indian history, with contributions from eminent Urdu scholar Mahmood Farooqui
