- DescriptionLieutenant-Colonel William Henry Sleeman (1788-1856) spent his entire career in India as an army officer and later as a magistrate and resident. He was best kwn for his fight to suppress the activities of 'thugs', bands of criminals who attacked, robbed and often murdered incent travellers. By the time of the publication of this two-volume work in 1844, Sleeman had lived in India for more than thirty years. In Volume 2, Sleeman examines many issues related to governance, such as land, tax, military discipline and the justice system, and he recounts some of the extensive conversations he had with Indians on these matters. His travels in this volume takes him through Gwalior, Dholpur, Agra and Bharatpur, and the book includes plates of some of the spectacular buildings that he visits.
