Description

This substantial work examines British policy towards India during the second half of the nineteenth century as formulated in Britain and India by the highest authorities.

The period from the Revolt and the assumption by the British Government of direct responsibility for the administration of India to the end of Curzon's viceroyalty is a crucial one and 1905 may be taken as the end of the first phase of the Crown's rule in India.

Dr. Gopal has studied the private as well as the public correspondence of the Viceroys, Secretaries of State, and others concerned such as Gladstone and Salisbury. Many of these collections of paper have only recently become available for public scrutiny. Dr Gopal has thus made a pioneer study and assessment of British high policy towards India as a whole during this period.

To the current reinterpretation of British-Indian history this work by Dr Gopal makes an important contribution.
