    Description

    From Plassey To Partition: A History of Modern India is a historical account of the British Empire in India, the Partition in 1947, and how India gained her independence.

    Summary Of The Book

    From Plassey To Partition: A History of Modern India begins with the disintegration and downfall of the Mughal Empire and the parallel rise of the British Empire in the Indian subcontinent. The book offers an insight into the minds of the Indians under the British rule and their struggle for freedom as it gained ground after the Rising of 1857. The book is unique in its approach towards presenting the problems of Indians under the British rule. It gives a detailed account of their conflicts, cultural and social changes, their fight for freedom and the acceptance and adaptation to modernism brought in by the foreign rulers. From Plassey To Partition: A History Of Modern India presents the entire history of the British dominion over India through the various struggles and rebellions of the Indians, the rise of Indian leaders and politics, the Partition that led to the creation of Pakistan and finally, Independent India.

    The entire account has been presented in a unique way by Sekhar Bandyopadhyay, who has provided the readers with different perspectives and sides to the entire struggle for Indian freedom. The book is divided into eight parts, which are British Empire in India, Emergence of Indian Nationalism, Transition of the Eighteenth Century, Early Indian Responses, Early Nationalism, Many Voices of a Nation, The Age of Gandhian Politics, and Freedom with Partition. The book also provides 5 maps of India at various times to offer a better understanding of the geography of the time. From Plassey To Partition: A History Of Modern India is suitable for both history students and interested readers, owing to its detailed presentation of the historical facts and events of that time period.

    Standard Textbook

    A standard text book for students of the period covered accommodating different views. However, as with most standard books of history written on India there is no discussion of tremendous growth of scientific capability of Indians during the period.

    Value for money.

    As you stroll down the pages, you will feel the depth you are about to witness in this book. Though the page quality is below expectation but the content overdoes every this else.
    A MUST BUY.. If you wast to gain a divergent perspective about the freedom struggle, being an non-JNU squad writer you can expect a more honest realisation of history.
