The book written by Sir Richard Temple dedicated to the Queen, Empress of India, is a reprint of the book entitled `Men and Events of My Time`. It presents a vivid picture of the men and events that have passed before the author during the thirty years of his life in India.
The book seeks to explore the lives of only those famous men, who from greatness in deed, or in station, from nobility of disposition, from proved service, or from excellence of conduct deserve to be remembered, and about whom the author was very well conversant.
Though the book has been written keeping in mind the mental framework of the English reader, yet, it effectively stands the tests which the Indian readers may apply.
It makes a very interesting and informative study for the students and scholars of history, political science and also commerce.
