Quit India Movement: A Study

Shachi Chakravarty (Author)
Synopsis The quit India Movement of 1942 is a milestone in India’s struggle for freedom. This densely researched volume deals with the developments in the multi-facet upsurge during the World War II. The close interactions between historical forces that stood behind Gandhi, the Conservatives, Jawaharlal Nehru, and the Congress Socialist Party encompassing various revolutionary units have been for the first time, fruitfully examined from the clinical perspective of an unbiased historian. Clearly formulated analytically argued and elegantly presented, the work offers a refreshing insight into the epic struggle and its social dynamics. The author’s notes and references include a wide selection from private papers and records from the Cambridge University Library and the India Office Record Room and Library on the one hand and to the District Collectorate’s records in Ballia, Azamgarh and Ghazipur on the other. The interesting aspect of the exercise is a natural blend of source material in the narrative without being pedantic or obtuse.
