Love and Betrayal in India

Historian William Dalrymple travels to the Deccan Plains of India to explore the remarkable love affair between British diplomat James Achilles Kirkpatrick and Khair un-Nissa, the Muslim princess he married. Through the 18th century art and architecture of both countries, and in archives across both continents, Dalrymple unearths a story of seduction and betrayal at odds with the conventional boundaries of empire.
