Description

India's British connection had far-reaching consequences on the sub-continent's complex polity. The traditional cultures imbibed the new concepts of rule of law, justice, nationalism, social reforms and English language .

This well-documented study underlines the real nature of British rule and the enormous amount of give-and-take between the two civilizations. It covers the wide canvas of attitudes, literature, art, architecture, language and political philosophies shared by them.
