This looks like a rip off of Dharampal's work.

Dharampal compiled and analyzed the archival material William Dalrymple seems to have used, decades ago.

Think "White Mughal" Dalrymple is trying to cash in on the increasing profile of Dharampal's work amongst Indians.

Hope Dalrymple has the decency to acknowledge Dharampal's contribution to his forthcoming book.

I am hoping Dalrymple's book will actually increase Dharampal's profile among Indians.

After reading the book Indians might actually want to read Dharampal's works to understand the Indo-British encounter from the Indian perspective.
