Spectrum book on modern india should be used as a reference to Bipin Chandra Pal book where ever one finds a topic or sub topic difficult to understan as topics in this are straight and have extra referencer from Internet (copy, paste). It should be better to make notes from Bipin Chandra book for Civils (this book should be read along while making notes from Bipin) however, one may copy a little few points from this but convert them in to ones own language
Finally a reference to others
Not up to the level of Civils.
well, it is a very compact in size as well as compact in briefing history of modern India. very good book, helps in revision for exam point of view. It clearly explains the period of 1857 to 1947.
But the only problem is that it has very small letter font size
This book is an extremely useful tool for civil service exam aspirants.It gives concise and very useful information in a lucid and easy to remember language. A good buy.It gives an overview of the modern history in a nutshell.
Well they say that good things often come in smaller sizes, this book is an example of that notion. Nice for any time reading.
The printing is okay but the Font Size could have been bigger, the font size is small.
