Product Description

 

 

National Movement: Origins and Early Phase, to 1918

This volume deals with the ways in which resistance to British rule developed, closing with the Revolt of 1857. It then passes on to the factors that led to the rise of national consciousness in India. This is followed by an account of the development of the National
Movement from 1885, when the Congress was founded, till 1918, on the eve of Gandhi’s emergence as its undisputed leader. While giving a narrative of events, dissensions and shifting British policies, the volume seeks to understand how the National Movement, beginning as a middle-class initiative, went on to acquire a mass character with early stirrings of workers’ and peasants’ struggles.
