Riassunto: The opening title of Paul Scott?s masterpiece, The Raj Quartet.

India 1942: WWII has shown that England is not invincible, and the self-rule lobby in India is growing. Against this background, Daphne Manners, a young English girl, is brutally raped in the Bibighat Gardens. The racism, brutality and hatred heaped upon her young Indian lover reveal the desperate state of Anglo-Indian relations. The rift that will eventually prise India ? the jewel in the Imperial Crown ? from colonial rule is beginning to gape wide.

Sinossi: No set of novels so richly recreates the last days of India under British rule?"two nations locked in an imperial embrace"?as Paul Scott's historical tour de force, The Raj Quartet. The Jewel in the Crown opens in 1942 as the British fear both Japanese invasion and Indian demands for independence. On the night after the Indian Congress Party votes to support Ghandi, riots break out and an ambitious police sargeant arrests a young Indian for the alleged rape of the woman they both love.
