Book Summary
‘The First Firangis is a tour de force, combining spectacular archival detective work; thoughtful and scholarly analysis; and a series of extraordinary and seductive stories, many of them completely unfamiliar, all written up in elegant and compelling prose. It’s not often that a history book is as gripping as a novel; rarer still that a historian succeeds in completely upending our perceptions of a period. Jonathan Gil Harris has done both, and in the process shed a dazzling light on a half-forgotten multicultural and multi-lingual era when the roads of Hindustan were full of renegade Firangis busy trying to turn themselves into Indians.’—William Dalrymple
