Well written book. It covers the whole Modern indian history. Presentation is good Key points at the end of each chapter is very useful for revision. Bipan Chandra's "History of Modern India" is interesting to read but from the examination perspective Spectrum is better Outscores Bipan Chandra's "History of Modern India" because of its neat presentation. Though the size of the book is small,font size is normal.
I have only one issue with d book. The pages are not up to the mark. The paper used is very cheap, If you are giving discount mean you have to decrease the quality of d product. If possible please do something on this. Rest everything is fine
