A History of Modern India, Paperback / softback Book


This book provides an interpretive and comprehensive account of the history of India between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries, a crucial epoch characterized by colonialism, nationalism and the emergence of the independent Indian Union.

It explores significant historiographical debates concerning the period while highlighting important new issues, especially those of gender, ecology, caste, and labour.

The work combines an analysis of colonial and independent India in order to underscore ideologies, policies, and processes that shaped the colonial state and continue to mould the Indian nation.
