Product description

Review

Not many of E. M Forster's readers could have imagined then that his book's theme -- relations between Europeans and non-Europeans -- would soon become an acute human and literary concern. The topic has recurred often enough in fiction since then, but never, to my knowledge, has it been treated as brilliantly as it is in Paul Scott's novel, The Jewel in the CrownThe New Yorker

Through the Layton family the changing spirit of the raj may be judged....From a work like this, all who care about fiction can take heart. ― The Times

A monument eloquently expressive of affection and grief ― Times Literary Supplement
