"Frey's concise and readable history of the Indian Rebellion is an excellent introduction to one of the most important wars of the nineteenth century.

The rebellion lasted more than a year and pitted broad sections of north Indian society against the British East India Company.

British victory consolidated colonial rule that would only be dislodged by twentieth-century nationalist movements.

Frey provides a crystal-clear account of the causes, principal events, and consequences of the rebellion.

Equally importantly, he deftly discusses why the rebellion remains controversial.

Well-chosen documents add texture to the analysis. This is the best short history of the rebellion in print ." —Ian Barrow, Middlebury College
