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 wo...

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

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.....................

language used for bhagat singh etc is extremely hurting!

this book uses the word-REVOLUTIONARY TERRORIST for bhagat singh, chand. azad, sukhdev and other heroes of HINDUSTAN SOCIALIST REPUBLICAN ASSOCIATION (HSRA) and call REVOLUTIONARY TERRORISM to their exceptional work...writers forgot that this is actually a REVOLUTIONARY NATIONALISM OR SAY HEROISM.....these writers have no respect for their outstanding incredible work for country's freedom then i decided to throw their book in dustbin....THANKS.. JAI HIND.
