This groundbreaking, first-time translation of the Mutiny Papers documenting the siege of Delhi shifts
focus away from conventional understandings of 1857. Mahmood Farooqui?s translations chronicle the
lives of courtesans, soldiers, potters, spies, faqirs, doctors and harassed policemen, all trying to live
through the turmoil of their city. They present a searing portrait of the hopes, beliefs and failures of
ordinary people who lived through the end of an era.
