This examination of the state of Hyderabad challenges the idea of the dominant British Raj as the sole sovereign power in the late colonial period. It redefines the nature of political sovereignty in the era of colonialism, and identifies the close relationship between Muslim rule and political modernity.

'Hyderabad formed the strongest Muslim link between colonial India and the world. By taking seriously its claims to sovereignty, Beverley carries Hyderabad beyond its colonial confines onto the larger stage of transnational history.' Nile Green, University of California, Los Angeles 'Hyderabad was a seat of political experimentation and sub-imperial power that was both communal and cosmopolitan. More than a princely state, as Eric Lewis Beverley shows, it is an exemplar of alternative forms of territorialized sovereignty in British India and beyond.' Antoinette Burton, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign "Hyderabad formed the strongest Muslim link between colonial India and the world. By taking seriously its claims to sovereignty, Beverley carries Hyderabad beyond its colonial confines onto the larger stage of transnational history."
