India during the final decades of British Raj was a country in turmoil. The Gandhian era was in full swing, the Muslim League was becoming a force to reckon with and the revolutionaries were doing their best to disrupt British rule. What, at that time, was the British attitude towards India? Dawn in India is an account of the views, opinions and attitudes held by the British in India. A chronicle of the history of British emergence in the country, it goes on to justify British reluctance to grant Swaraj to India, casting a critical eye on Indian nationalism, Hindu-Muslim strife and British reforms in the country. Assessing the role of political leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi and Bal Gangadhar Tilak, societal norms and spiritual movements, Younghusband provides a portrait of India in the decades preceding Independence through British eyes. A classic from the early twentieth century, Dawn in India is a remarkable account of the complex relationship between Britain and India. Printed Pages: 256. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 102930
