Product description

Review

The book is relatively concise when compared to books on the same topic by other authors. It captures the holistic view of not only struggle for independence but also the later Mughal period (post Aurangzeb), the decline of central authority, rise of regional satraps and the domination of tribes from Afghanistan. Those who are preparing for Civil Services should definitely go through this book twice or thrice, especially as in the new pattern the history syllabus will begin from the mid-18th century instead of mid-19th century, as was the case earlier. --Kavinder Negi on 06 Mar 2013

this book gives a brief description about the events happened chronologically and so easy to get the writings of the author... one should read it --Ankit Bala on 22 Feb 2015

It is the must book for all IAS aspirants. Written in very Lucid language, like a story very interesting to read. This book made history easy for student like me of engineering background. --Abhi Sinha on 07 Feb 2015

Though the content of the book is extremely good, but the paper quality makes it so dull that noone would feel the urge to open the book n read it. lol. But if u r preparing for cse, u must buy it n extract the juice out of it. Good luck to all IAS aspirants. :)

Since I've just received this, am going to write about the quality of the paper and printing . The paper is good but the printing lacks a little. So am giving a 3 star for now.
I will add to the content of the book once am done reading it.

Go for Rajiv Ahir's Spectrum Modern History! I've red both the books. This book is boring and too many irrelevant facts and stories as far as UPSC is concerned.

The book is informative and interesting... But superficial and more like an exam guide.

Also, the book just is a bunch of loose papers slapped together. It had started coming apart within 2 weeks... Not really worth the money you pay.
