About the Book:

Based on archival and other sources at Edinburgh, London, Nottingham, Calcutta and Delhi, Birth of a New India consists of four articles on Bentinck, Dalhousie and Curzon which appreared in the learned journals abroad in the past three decades. Each one of the four articles either corrects an error or rediscovers the truth in the specific contribution of a Governor-General to the creation of a New India in the nineteenth century.

Because of the difficult inaccessibility in India of these journals which carried these articles in the past, they are now put together in a monograph for the use of the graduate and the post-graduate students of history, sociology and education in Modern India.
