A Comprehensive History of Modern India is an attempt to cover the history of India from the beginning of the eighteenth century till nearly the end of the twentieth century in a succinct and balanced manner without ignoring important details. The book carefully analyses all aspects of modern Indian history with due emphasis on facts, clarity, and lucidity of language. Each chapter incorporates the views of historians and famous people as well as a summary of that chapter for a quick revision of the facts.
Many topics which are generally studied under contemporary history pertaining to the developments in the recent past (including developments in science and technology, and environmental and ethnic movements) have been also dealt with. Over the years, the book has been revised to include topics that have gained relevance in academic discussions. Events in Science and Technology and environmental policies are updated to almost the present.
This book covers the latest syllabus for the Civil Services (Main) Examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission for modern Indian history portions in a comprehensive manner. The students appearing for state civil services examinations as well as those taking the UGC (NET) or the SLET examination will also find the book quite helpful, apart from those who have taken up history as a subject of their choice for their graduation and post-graduation courses.
All constructive comments and suggestions for improving the book are welcome.
