    Description

    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

    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

    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

    Good one for revision

    I read this book three times.Its really a relevant book for UPSC exams if you have limited time but its a good one after you have already red bipin chandra for revision purpose. Fact to fact alignment makes it more relevant and worth reading.

    Compact Knowledge

    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.

    Flipkart delivered the book within 24 hrs, so looking forward to enjoy the same kind of service in future too.
