The author researched the subject and wrote an excellent book about New Delhi, the history of the City, the inhabitants of the City from inception to date, their culture, religions, beliefs and the role the English played in the history and development of India. I found very interesting the portion of the book on djinns and the role of Mughals in the history and development of New Delhi. Coverage of the historical landmarks in New Delhi was interesting and informative. I intend to read all if not most of the author's books as I finished this book, thinking it is well researched, written and informative. I read this book after returning from India and the contents gave me a better perspective of New Delhi. I strongly recommend this book as a travel guide/book to be read before visiting New Delhi especially if one is interested in "old" and not modern day India.
