An Advanced History of Modern India

Sailendra Nath Sen (Author)

An Advanced History Modern India has been designed for undergraduate students as well as those preparing for the Civil Services Examinations at both, the central and state levels. It is a daunting task to write a book of this kind when dynamic changes have occurred in the last three decades in the historiography of modern India, including the advent of Subaltern Studies, that has changed our perspective completely. This user-friendly textbook attempts to weave the known facts of history with the unknown, and thus foster a spirit of enquiry among its young readers. Apart from political history, due emphasis has been laid on socio-economic changes, administrative innovations, cultural ferments and the trials and tribulations of nationalist movements. Due importance has also been given to the post- independence era that led to the emergence of a new India vibrant with a fresh lease of life.

Adequately illustrated with maps, this volume also contains a detailed chronology, biographical notes on distinguished personalities notes on distinguished personalities, a list of Congress sessions including names of Prime Ministers, Presidents and Vice-Presidents of independent India as well as an exhaustive bibliography.
