This book offers an interesting and illuminating study of Great Britain and the Indo-Pakistan subcontinent in the 19th century. Punjabi historian Salahuddin Malik sheds light on the motives behind British imperialism in South Asia and religious interactions in India between Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Sikhism. He also discusses the concept of clash of civilizations between Christianity and Islam.
"[This history] is to be understood in terms of a deeply ingrained prejudice against Islam rooted in Western history. The rebels were seen as enemies of the Christian civilization of the West, not as opponents to a foreign invader."—Ainslie Embree
