About The Book
Arthur Galletti was an Indian Civil Service maverick in Madras Presidency whose professional and personal Anglo-Italian character 'differences' led to battles that highlighted sharp political and social divisions among British rulers in India.
This biography of Arthur Galletti provides deep insight into his life and personality as well as his style of working and his concern for the welfare of common people. Simultaneously, it demonstrates social prejudices in British India concerning class, status, race, education and profession. Also, it connects to the major phases of the independence movement in India between the late 19th century and 1947.
