History

This book objectively traces the growth of American official attitude towards the Indian nationalist movement from 1905 to 1929. It provides the foundation for understanding the subsequent developments of Indo-American relations. The volume encompasses manifold facets of Indian nationalism including Swadeshi and Boycott, terrorism in Indian politics, efforts by Indian nationalist émigrés in America to promote the cause of Indian freedom particularly on Lala Lajpat Rai's five years exile in the United States and his endeavour to win the support of American people and the government to the cause of India, impact of First World War, advent of Mahatma Gandhi and his launching of non-cooperation programme. The author thus brings us to 1929, when in his opinion there was definite crystallization of American attitude and policy as regards the early realization of India's national destiny within the British Empire as a fully self-governing dominion. This is the first attempt of its kind undertaken by an Indian historian based on archival materials available in the National Archives and the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
