Abstract:

This book gives a clear, comprehensive account of the complex factors which led to the rise and eventual success of Indian nationalism in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The groups and individuals responsible for inaugurating the first Western-style political organisations are examined against their social background, and the part played by the Indian National Congress in the struggle for Independence is then analysed in detail. The later chapters examine the emergence of Gandhi as a national leader and consider the success of the non-violent techniques which he espoused. The history concludes with the attainment of independence and traces developments in the successor nations up to the present day, Rajiv Gandhi as Prime Minister of India, the coming of V.P. Singh as Prime Minister, up to the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi in May 1991.
