The Impeachment of Warren Hastings

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Very good in good price-clipped dustjacket. Maroon cloth with gilt to spine, slightest of faded spots to front, spine ends barely rubbed. Jacket slightly faded, small stain spots to spine, closed tear (1cm) to front top, slight fraying to spine ends, rubbing to rear. Block tight and crisp, possibly unread.

"The first half of this book examines the way in which Edmund Burke became convinced that the East India Company had perpetrated great crimes and that their Governor-General, Warren Hastings, was personally responsible for these crimes. It also attempts to explain why Burke achieved so striking a success in persuading the House of Commons to take up his charges against Hastings, and why these charges fared so badly in the House of Lords. The second half contains a study of the accusations which actually came to a hearing: the famous episodes of Raja Chait Singh and 'the Begums of Oude', and charges which called in question both Hasting's financial integrity and his use of patronage."
