Description for From Plassey to Partition: A History of Modern India (Old Edition)

Review

I purchased the book from a local bookseller, keeping the new UPSC mains exam pattern in mind. Needless to say, this book has raised and improved my standards of understanding and analytical approach to history.. Have already finished Bipin Chandra's "India struggle for Independence" before this.. However this book is on a completely different level than that.. This book is more mains-oriented and useful in forming analytical answers. Language and presentation is very lucid and keeps the reader interested. Although it depends on person to person, I found this book more according to my reading style and thinking. Long story short, highly recommended!! --Ankit Srivastav 05 Jul 2013

This and its translations, remains one of the most useful books for any serious student of modern history. While remaining accessible to the average reader, including school children, it covers the basic views of the important schools of historiography. I personally used this for a crash course before any competitive examination, apart from using it as the basic book for any topic taught in BA (for MA a little more detail is needed, but then this wasn't written for that level) And as things stand, it's the most uptodate book available today. Even if you're not planning to study history in higher levels (BA and above), this book can come useful in a host of situations. A must have! --Aritra Majumdar 28 Dec 2012

A standard text book for students of the period covered accommodating different views. However, as with most standard books of history written on India there is no discussion of tremendous growth of scientific capability of Indians during the period. --SUSANTA MAJUMDAR 06 Jan 2015
