Arthur Galletti was an Indian Civil Service maverick in Madras Presidency whose professional and personal Anglo-Italian character differences led to battles that highlighted sharp political and social divisions among British rulers in India. This biography of Arthur Galletti provides deep insight into his life and personality as well as his style of working and his concern for the welfare of common people.

Also it connects to the major phases of the in dependence movement in India between the late 19th century and 1947.
