An authoritative account based on a dispassionate study of the movement of 1857 written from the standpoint of a true historian, this monumental work claims to be purely objective, and scrupulously impartial.
What caused the Revolt of 1857? Assuredly, the greased cartridge is the general reply with just a few dissidents. The obnoxious grease, by itself, could hardly cause such a mighty conflagration. The question has often been asked as to who were responsible for the uprising. If it be asked why the revolt of the Indian people was delayed for almost hundred years, the explanation may be found in many facts.
This work has brought together an enormous amount of material within the compass of one volume, and contains the most comprehensive bibliography on the subject. There has been many popular single volume accounts of the uprising but as a scholarly monograph, Sen's 1857 remains unsurpassed.
