A Brief History of Modern India (English) 18th Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs. 220

A Brief History Of Modern India highlights the important milestones and events from a specific timeframe in India, between the years of 1857 and 1947.

Summary Of The Book

The history of modern India is so vast that one volume will not be enough to capture it. But this book manages to bring out the most essential aspects and incidents that occurred in modern India’s past. It begins with the revolt of 1857, detailing the reasons for the uprising, and goes right up to India claiming independence.

The nationalist movement is covered in three different stages. The book also touches upon the various changes that the British government brought to India. It talks about its effect on the administration and the economy of India.

A Brief History Of Modern India also highlights the various reform movements that took place across the country by the tribals, workers, and peasants. It also talks about the civil rebellion and all those involved in it. The book even features a ready reference section. This covers the lives of famous personalities who played an important role in India’s fight for freedom. It also describes the yearly sessions of the Indian National Congress. It even educates readers with the names and details of the various viceroys and governors of India.

A Brief History Of Modern India is systematically divided into different chapters covering topics like Indian states, the evolution of the Nationalist Foreign Policy, the development of education and the Indian Press. At the end of each chapter, the brief summary provided ensures that readers get a recap of the important points.

good book for IAS aspirants

Good book to start with your preparation. All the major points are listed out in precise way.
So one can first read this and then go an explore additional points.

I recommend this to all the students, especially civil service aspirants.

Content of book is well arranged and content is good. But the paper quality and book winding is very poor. It gets torn apart in 1st reading.

Great book

aspirants read Bipin Chandra, toppers read Rajiv Ahir. Quite a paradox but a glance at questions asked in G.S,-1 from Indian History will tell the tale. you need a broader view instead of micro perspective to answer the questions now.

Good for UPSC but only as additional reading

This book is for people who already gone thru the standard History books for UPSC and looking for in-depth or additional reading. Personaly it helps me since my philosophy is if you read 200%, you will remember 50 %

A Good Resourceful Book

the book is a great resource and is a perfect recipe for knowledge seekers and competitive exam students like upsc and other state exams where questions from history are asked...but it is also good for people who wish to know about the sequence of happenings and events that impacted our freedom struggle....going by the size of the book..i got a bit disappoint initially but when i read through the pages i realised that great things come in small package!!!!! the book is very systematically written...nothing superfluous is added and nothing important is left...the ready reference data at the end

Concise and apt , unbiased version of Indian History

Unlike the case of Bipin Chandra's book , this book is not a propagandist of Nehruvian philosophy and yeah we do know Nehru didn't play as big a role as high chair he got to sit on.

On the book, it is an awesome book , nutshelled , concised and apt bookwithout leaving minutest of details.

2012 CSAT question about national social conference is there in one line, same with 2013 simon commission in one line and all others

I would certainly recommend it over Bipin as every aspirant's immediate need is to optimise time and efficiency.

a referencer to Bipin Chandra book only.

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.

Great Book for CSE Prelim

Very good book almost covers all the Important topics in India's Modern History. Though it is good book, I will suggest to use it as supplementary book with Bipin Chandra's Book.


Cons:
- Paper Quality is very Poor.
- Text is also very small
