Attention UPSC aspirants.

Here is what I feel.

1. Most of the aspirants will suggest to avoid this book and directly go to Modern History by Rajiv Ahir, but I think reading only Rajiv Ahir creates gaps in the history as book by Rajiv Ahir is( kind of ) notes of history. So I suggest you first read it (Bipin Chandra…

Must read but with caution!

read it cover to cover.
In the midway I realized that it is truly a pro-congress or pro-nationalist book. But, then also I proceeded. There are times, when it tries to justify the stand of Congress on critical matters. A reader must read it with this 'bias' in mind of authors because as already been said by others that most of the authors are from JNU and in some way or other are associated with different government institutions.
However, it is a good read in terms of it's style of presenting history. In fact, one can easily find that history is not merely about memorizing the dates, it is mor

Revolutionary Terrorism! Indeed!!

an extract from the book goes "the end of 1907 brought another political trend to the fore. the impatient young men of bengal took to the path of individual heroism and revolutionary terrorism( a term we use without any pejorative meaning and for want for another term).

I for one am at a loss as to how a renowned group of 5 historians are not able to find a proper term for our freedom fighters.
well let me suggest some - "radical extremists", "ultra extremists" and i am sure that if these wont fit one can easily come up with a little more reverent term than "revolutionary terrorism"

Too defensive

Cons:
1) The authors defend Congress at each and every term. This part is very important - in some of the chapters - even the facts are not explained correctly. Without bothering to introduce the event as it happened, they start defending Congress' leaders stance. This is especially true for the chapters authored by Sucheta Mahajan - that is the pre-partition chapters. This not only makes the book SMELL of bias; but also makes it VERY hard for a new reader to understand events. Thus, you need to have a background on Indian History before you can understand this book.Many pages in the book are

A Bias and Put-forth Illusion (Propaganda)

I have read this book of 'Bipin Chandra'. This book gives the biased perception of events and it presents those in a manner as it would have been supporting a given propaganda of the (Politically) Authoritative entity. Anyways,we all know a thing called history-which is used to plot the political future of a country but here as we can clearly feel that politics has been used to present the history!!! Therefore,we all are being made a victim of encumbered philosophy and the explanation here indicate a 'Manipulative' view (Propaganda).

Good Work But....

It's a well written work if one dont bother about the following:

1. Deterministic(Marxian) view of History.
2. Authors not just portrays Nehru as a great leader but as a man who is all plus not even a hint of minus as if he's incapable of committing mistakes.


and few more things like these.

My preference is, From Plassey To Partition: A History Of Modern India by SEKHAR BANDYOPA

A sad moment for all Indians

It is really sad and annoying how great freedom fighters Bharat Singh , surya sen are tagged as 'revolutionary terrorists' ...totally pro congress...no wonder crimes and scares are an integral part of the country because people who show courage and stand up against the exploitation and repression are termed as 'terrorists' SHAME !

A fantastic book!!!

A fantastic book which takes you to the journey of the past. The minute detail of the past has been taken into consideration. highly recommended for UPSC exams. you wont feel as though you are reading for exam sake as it makes you so curious to know more and more. this book makes you so knowledgeable of the past you'll realise when You study it thoroughly and look into the previous question papers of IAS and say "I can answer this". A great book and A great experience!!!

JNU = communists

communist = anti india. welcome to the world of pseudo secular propaganda, anyone who suggests that bhagat sing is a terrorist looses a sane credibility. Book is written well but is for those only who wish to live in the falseness of history.

Biased in favour of Nehru.............

I purchased the book as part of my civil services preparation. The book is good in factual part but certainly Bipan Chandra and company being part of JNU very cleverly put story to glorify Nehru and Congress...
So I would just say that please read this book just for getting to know how things turned in National Movement but please don't form your opinion based on this book.....................
