Vol XVI in the series. Illustrated with B&W maps. From the cover: “At this turning point for India the public wishes to understand her political and economic situation. This book therefore sets out to explain the present position against its historical background. The main lines of India’s development, in particular the establishment, extension and gradual relinquishment of British power, are stated and earlier times touched on to identify the living political legacies of Hindu and Muslim India. Confusion of thought on all sides in achieving the delicate substitution of popular for despotic rule is shown to have grave consequences for India’s political and economic future.”
