Abstract:

"'Britain in India, 1858-1947' seeks to trace the last 90 years of British rule in the light of modern historical debates. The volume examines the ambiguities of British rule that followed from the post-Mutiny settlement: the tensions between an authoritarian bureaucracy and the promise of a liberal vision of the future, and between imperial interests and the growing coordination of Indian aspirations for self-rule. The volume analyses these tensions with reference to contemporary historical debates, and traces them through changing international relations and world wars to Indian independence and partition in 1947. Readership: Part of the Anthem Perspectives in History series, this volume will be a useful resource for A level and undergraduate students of history, as well as the general reader interested in the history of British India."--Publisher's website.
