From Amazon: A comprehensive account of the factors that led to the rise of Indian nationalism in the 19th and 20th centuries is provided in this detailed history of modern India. The individuals and political groups responsible for inaugurating the first Western-style political organizations figure prominently in the discussion of how the Indian National Congress affected the struggle for independence. The emergence of Gandhi as a national leader, the nonviolent techniques he espoused, and the attainment of independence shed light on the modern political situation in India. This revised edition is updated to include recent leadership changes and the National Democratic Alliance.
