Title: Robert Clive.
Description: Arthur Baker, London, (1976).. 224 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "There were many different Clives. The gentle lover his wife knew; the fearless and often unorthodox army leader; the astute polititician who tangled with the directors of the East India Company; and the generous, dutiful son who so frequently came to the aid of his economically inept father. In his excellent biography, Richard Garrett considers all of them. He traces Clive's spectacular career from its early days on the battlefields to the years of power, when he could enthrone or depose an Indian prince according to the needs of the moment. The author describes such battles as Plassey and the siege of Arcot, and he deals with the tragic climax at the end of Cl ive's ca reer when Parliament very nearly brought about his ruin.." 3" sq. area of very light browning on free front endpaper - probably caused by previous owners bookplate.
