This chapter seeks to position Clow’s experiences in colonial India against the backdrop of wider issues and trends during the period of his service. The chapter discusses Clow’s recruitment into the ICS, his marriage to Ariadne, and his life after the ICS. What is of interest here is not necessarily the events themselves but the temperament of the man and his attitude to the situations that were before him. Moreover, understanding the historical and social context of Clow’s career allows us to draw stronger conclusions when analysing the key events in the later chapters.
