Summary: Based on an objective evaluation of available materials, as far as possible, this work is a welcome addition to mthe growing corpus of regional history, especially that of cities, and provides the reader with an example of a devoted study derived more from a serious quest to identify the 'personality' of a chosen area than from mere intellectual curiosity. Description: This work has been based on an in-depth study of a vast corpus of source-materials, both primary and secondary, epigraphic, literary and archival, viz., documents, correspondences, administrative reports, charts, maps and plans in addition to non-official records, diaries, memoirs, reminiscences, minutes of civil bodies, visual materials and even testimonials.
