Ramesh Chunder Dutt (1848-1909) is one of the brightest stars in the galaxy of nineteenth century Indian thinkers both in History and literature as well as in contemporary politico-economic conditions. His innumerable writings on India's economic conditions under the British rule, and on the Cultural Heritage of this Country are too well known to need any fresh introduction; they made his name known in India, as well as in the West. He was at once a man of great capacity and of great character. The present work is, as the title indicates, an Account in great details, of the life and works of the above mentioned thinker. The work is not simply a Narrative biography, but it has been written from a particular standpoint-it depicts the life of Romesh Chunder Dutt, an acknowledged master in the field of Indian economic history and administration, as a chapter of the contemporary national life. The present work describes all the stages of the life of Ramesh Chunder Dutt and his Career both as an administrator and as a writer. All his works have been reviewed to highlight their importance in the field of scholarship and national movement. A Good collection from Romesh Chunder's correspondence, included in the work, has greatly enhanced its value. The work is profusely illustrated by rare Portraits of Ramesh Chunder and his family.
