    Description

    India's Struggle For Independence presents a detailed outlook on the struggle for Indian Independence in a new analytical framework.

    Summary Of The Book

    Designed for ardent history enthusiasts, India's Struggle For Independence is one of the most exhaustive and precise account of the struggle of Indian Independence ever written in the literary world. Written and edited by five expert authors, it presents a detailed outlook on one of the most important periods in Indian history.

    The facts and details provided in this book have been gathered from oral and written sources, and various other primary sources have been used along with years of intense research. Written with a very concise approach, it is a one of a kind book that details the intricacies of the Indian Independence struggle.

    The struggle for Indian Independence took a long time and was something that affected the whole country. Every state in the country boasted of some kind of revolt – minor or major during this period. Numerous revolutionaries throughout the country came together in their efforts to fight against the British rule and set their country free. Few of the chapters in the book are The Fight to Secure Press Freedom, Foundation of the Congress: The Myth, World War I and Indian Nationalism: The Ghadar, An Economic Critique of Colonialism, Peasant Movements and Uprisings after 1857, The Non-Cooperation Movement—1920-1922, The Gathering Storm-1927-1929, Civil Rebellions and Tribal Uprisings, and many more.

    India's Struggle For Independence takes the reader on a journey across India as she was craving for her Independence. This book starts at the very first revolt of 1857 under the guidance of Mangal Pandey, from Rani Lakshmi Bai’s innate passion to free her country, Subhash Chandra Bose’s unmatched charisma and aggressive tactics, to Mahatma Gandhi’s famous civil disobedience and non-cooperation movement, to the final victory in 1947 when the British Raj finally came to an end.

    The book reflects a coherent narrative as it incorporates the existing historiographical advances and yet provides an utterly new and clear view of this period in Indian history.

    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...

    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.

    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 !

    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

    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...

    False propaganda: A blatant attempt at glorifying Congress

    While the language and style of writing of this Book by the authors is welcome. The content is totally biased and pro-congress, its doing false propaganda and feels like a blatant attempt at glorifying Congress. It seems like authors predecided on the tone and content or someone has actually asked the authors to write it in a particular way. Though the dates are right, The way INC has been glorified and those who were opposed to its ideals and ideas are deplored is unworty of being a true Ind...
