Despite presenting a dated view on Indian history, this book offers readers a Britisher's perspective on the Indian culture. It explains how India came under the British regime and details the history of the country during that period. Readers will understand how the British policies towards Indian governance were formed and how the Indian Independence Movement gained its momentum. Spear explains that Mughal rule initiated the entry of modern civilization to India, offering a view that is often disputed in Indian academic circles. He also puts forth his view that the British Raj completed this transformation, bringing Western Civilization to India.
