Doolally Sahib and the Black Zamindar: Racism and Revenge in the British Raj is a loosely chronological account of the relations between Indians and the races that invaded and ruled India.
The focus of the book is the British Raj, the most recent and impactful occupation of India. Akbar’s primary thesis is that, unlike the earlier Muslim invaders who merged with the existing Indian culture and considered India to be their home or even the Portuguese who took Indian wives and made a home here, the British always remained apart and considered India as a place to make their fortunes and take ‘home’, i.e., England. This resulted in the horrors of the Raj, such as the stark racism and poverty of the Indians.
