Dr Shashi Tharoor: Inglorious Empire
Wed 1 March 2017, 19:00 – 20:30 GMT
Blackwell’s is proud to present the politician, author, and former diplomat Dr Shashi Tharoor, to discuss his latest book Inglorious Empire.
Evolving from a speech Dr Shashi Tharoor gave at the Oxford Union two years ago, Inglorious Empire is a bold and incisive reassessment of British colonialism in India, from the arrival of the East India Company to the end of the Raj. By examining the negative effects on the economy, legal system, and food supply, this book exposes the stained legacy of Britain in India.
Interviewing him is Dr Faisal Devji, director of the St Antony’s College Asian Studies Centre and an author on both modern Islam and Indian political thought.
This event is free to attend.
