Diamonds are Forever
With Anita Anand, William Dalrymple has penned the authoritative history of the Koh-i Noor, arguably the most celebrated jewel in the world. Steeped in mystery and mythology, ‘The Mountain of Light’ symbolises Britain’s controversial colonial rule of India. The official history only tells half the story; today a story of greed, murder, torture and appropriation is told through Dalrymple's powerful, compelling narrative.
