Clean, tight, unmarked; crease to bottom front edge of cover; wear to inside corners; otherwise spine straight and uncreased; light general wear; Originally written in 1906, his valuable edition locates Duncan's novel about the Anglo-Indian community at the height of the British empire in its political, historical context - one that foregrounds Duncan's frank and insightful evocation of the imperialist project. socio-Set in Authority is about illusions: the imperial illusions of those who rule and are ruled; the illusions of families about their members; the illusions of men and women about each other. The setting moves between the political drawing rooms of London and the English station at Pilaghur in the province of Ghoom, where the murder of a native by an English soldier changes the lives of a cast of ruthlessly observed characters.
