History of Modern India is one of the famous books of Bipin Chandra. This book was published by Orient Blackswan in This book is a journey mapping the . 2 Mughal twilight: the emergence of regional states and the. has become, as never before A Concise History of Mode Modern Russian Grammar Routledge .
The text is largely based on the author s research on nationalism and colonialism in India and also draws from the works of eminent historians of the period. Challenging and revising colonial and nationalist interpretations of history, this book moves away from a largely political narrative to a social, economic and religious history of modern India. It explains how conditions in India during the eighteenth century helped the British East India Company establish its rule in India. It also gives us important insights into the primary aim of colonial rule which was the economic exploitation of India through trade and investment. The topics are arranged thematically in order to showcase the various forces that went into the making of independent India. However, in the entire arrangement of themes, the chronology of the period is enmeshed innovatively with the various forces that evolved both as a cause and effect of British imperialist rule of the subcontinent.
Jan 31, Akshita Bhardwaj rated it liked it. Unlike India's struggle for Independence, this happens to be a mere compilation of facts. For more exhaustive and opinion-based work India's struggle Sep 03, Keerthy rated it really liked it Shelves: This book gives a brief account of events that tied India together after the fall of Mughal Empire and the freedom struggle. Serves as an introductory read to those interested in the history of India. Nov 03, Rohit Shinde rated it liked it Shelves: A bit biased toward Congress I think.
Aug 13, Ravi Bhati rated it liked it. A neat and clean write up on the History of India. Well written. Good reference book for competitive exams. Jan 02, Aachal Bidwai rated it it was ok Shelves: But is not the best one if you want to dive into the British Indian history of colonialism.
Sep 12, Sherin P L rated it it was ok. Overall a good book. A fair enough idea about the freedom struggle is in this book.
But it lacks depth. So many important incidents are just mentioned or are not explained further. Many important personalities are not given due coverage, including Bose, Patel etc. Over emphasis on the deeds of Nehru is seen.
So this book can't be counted as a comprehensive read of our freedom struggle. But good enough to get a blur picture of what has happened over the struggle years.
Aug 18, Sharayu Gangurde rated it did not like it Shelves: Greatly disappointed with this book. It vilifies the British badly and I have never read such an anti-British book ever. Did not think Bipin Chandra would ever present history in such a manner. He seems very biased about certain social reformers and leaders. Not worth Civil Services prep for sure. Oct 24, Athul rated it it was ok. Its a bleeding text book. That's what this is. Apr 25, Sarath Ramakrishnan rated it liked it Shelves: Biased at times.
Dec 08, Prathyush Sambaturu rated it liked it. It provides an account of the following events of the Modern Indian History: This book only provides important notes on these events and does not even go into the details of many events that happened during this period.
It is suitable as an overview for a reader who is new to Modern Indian history. You might need to read some other books in conjunction to get a detailed account of this period of Indian history. Quick Summary: In this book, the author narrates the story of Modern India beginning with the downfall of the Moghul Empire during the early 18th century.
He examines the various reasons for the downfall of the glorious empire. The void in the political sphere of India created by the fall of such a powerful dynasty was to be filled by numerous small kingdoms. The Marathas had come to paramount power during the late 18th century.
But during their westward expansion, they met with the Afghan forces under the leadership of Ahmad Shah Abdali in the third Battle of Panipat only to suffer a loss.
From here on, the company shrewdly used the strategy of "Divide and Conquer" policy to gradually subjugate majority of India. The common suffering and misery endured by the people across the country under the company rule gradually united them against one common enemy - the EIC. After the first major revolt in , the British took the control of India into its own hands from the EIC.
This only further increased the sufferings of the people such as huge burden of taxation and many other forms of suppression. Decades of the EIC rule plunged India into economic backwardness and its people into poverty and illiteracy. The lack of sense of unity among the people in various parts of India was time and again exploited by the EIC. In , a group of western educated Indians formed the Indian National Congress under the supervision of a retired British civil servant in India.
INC was at the forefront in the nationalist movement of India. During the first phase , the moderate nationalists were active in filing petitions to the government to improve the administration.
But the militant nationalism took over the second phase of the nationalist movement which also spread to INC. During both these phases, the mass movement involving people was absent. In Gandhi, who earlier returned from South Africa after leading the Indian people there against racial discrimination, took over the reins of Indian National Movement.
This marks the beginning of Gandhian Era, which evoked a mass reaction from the people across the subcontinent. Also, during late 's, India witnessed many revolutionaries Bhagat Singh, Azad, etc. In spite of all the movements, revolts, and uprisings, the British were not yet ready to leave India. This period also saw the rise of communalism in India. In , the second world war broke out and Britain which fought on the side of allies had to fight on many fronts.
The Indian Army was used to fight the British wars without a consensus of its people.
The popular revolt for Indian Independence in was suppressed by jailing majority of Indian freedom fighters. The plan was that they will enter India via Burma and release the Indian people from the yolk of British rule. After , Gandhi and other freedom fighters who were just released from jail fought the final struggle for Independence. Due to various reasons, the British finally chose to grant the Independence to India. The British and the Indian politicians accepted the partition of India based on the demands of the communal forces.
During the partition which was hurried and recklessly planned by the British, India witnessed one of the horrific killings of both Hindus and Muslim moving across the frontiers of the newly formed India.
Nevertheless, plagued with economic backwardness, the looming darkness of partition, on the midnight hour of 14th August , India became independent.
This ends and begins the making of Indian Nation. Dec 06, Shiva Gupta rated it really liked it. Apr 22, Shubham Srivastava rated it really liked it Shelves: History by someone you can consider the most appropriate one to write.
A clear description of events during the end of medieval period, the freedom struggle and finally a brief of journey into the challenges of a free India.
This gives us a good intellectual exercise while discussing the sensitive attitude. The author has taken a slight socialist bent while explaining.
Not many authors are able to present history is such elaboration and lucidity. Must read for every citizen of India. Apr 17, Ismail Lakdawala rated it really liked it. He gets a little repeatitive in the first half.
A few chapters overlap the facts. He describes the decline of Mughals in comprehensive details. Pays equal attention at mentioning efforts of every person involved in the freedom struggle. Gave me some insight to reflect our history upon today's society.

Between history text books of high school and this book, one gets unique perspectives of social and political narrative of india.
From the decline of mughals to the reign of britishers and the independence of india, this is a handbook to get a overview of events of the period. Loved reading the book. May 07, Eric Miranda rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is more a factual and academic popular for IAS students as I understand book focused on historical accuracy, rather than mainly opinions and narratives.
I highly recommend this if you're looking for a factual rather than narrative description of the history of modern India. Good for getting overview of Indian struggle for independence Bipan Chandra has written in very simple words the reasons and implications of colonialism in India.
And he has done this task by explaining it from all point of views like administration, economic, political etc. Oct 29, Jeevan Benny rated it really liked it.
