    One thought on “Modern India, 1885 1947”

    1. A classic text on modern Indian history. Provides a comprehensive and objective account of the colonial period from 1885 to the tragedy of the partition and the coming of political independence.The author manages to showcase the importance of the pressure from the bottom in the anti-imperialist movements by focussing on the tribal, peasant and the worker struggles, while placing all the movements in their proper social and economic contexts.A valuable resource on a struggle that is still far fro [...]

    2. If you have read Bipan Chandra's book on the independence struggle, this book will give you a more holistic perspective with a bottoms up view of the movement- its local variations, phases and involvement of various sections - also its less Congress centric, and much more avowedly leftist, with(in my opinion) a little bit of an obsession about the bourgeoisie and the working class divide. Reading in conjunction with Bipan Chandra;s "Struggle for Independence" recommended

    3. Unlike Bipin Chandra book of India's struggle for freedom which is popular among UPSC aspirants, this book provide a holistic perspective by analysing history from bottoms to top. Contrary to Nationalist historian who have written modern Indian history by praising all its leaders, mass movements without critically analysing them, this book really do justice in observing different event, movement, changes, leaders. While great leaders do play important role in a history of a nation, socio-politic [...]

    4. One of the detailed, well researched and a very well written book on Indian Freedom struggle. The book throws light on the changing political economic and social condition of Indian people during the period. Unlike other authors on Indian Freedom movement he has chosen the year of 1885 (When Indian national Congress was formed) to begin his intriguing tale of the turmoiling Indian masses fighting for their freedom which would end into a bloody massacre more-soever when they have been destined to [...]

    5. A comprehensive account of the modern Indian colonial period from the late 19th century until independence. Sarkar manages to weld the more nationalist-oriented historiography with an array of sources that highlight the popular, everyday nature of the anti-colonial struggle. A very good primer into the colonial history of the Indian subcontinent.

    6. Read parts of it before; now read it end-to-end. Very interesting read, but far too obsessed with class conflict
