William Dalrymple: The Privatised Imperialists

200 years of tumultuous colonial history are contained within the pages of historian William Dalrymple’s four magisterial books The Anarchy, White Mughals, Return of a King and The Last Mughal. To celebrate a new edition of Dalrymple’s 20-year project, join us in welcoming him back to Edinburgh to explain the Mughal Empire’s replacement by the first global corporate power, the East India Company.
