This book has significant historical value: a) it offers a serious insight into the British psyche at the height of Victorian England by delving into the serious debates which ensued in the wake of the revolt in India. The result is analytical reflections on British imperial, evangelical,economic, political, military and moral thinking. While a majority of the Britons were social, political or spiritual Rudyard Kiplings, a smaller number, like Chartists headed by Ernst Jones and the Irish nationalists were moral provocateurs who seriously challenged the conscience of theircountrymen on imperial issues. b) The book breaks a number of myths which had been carefully nurtured in Britain about the popular acceptance of British rule in India. Even though public opinion by its very nature is a combination of fact, fiction, and gossip, the extraordinarily large number ofreports from the field in India (the fist mail dealing with the uprising in India brought more than 20,000 pieces of mail from the rebel colony on 26 June1857) shattered the long held convictions in Britain that their rule was popularly embraced by the populace in India. c)The book further opens anew vista in the study of the Indian 'mutiny'; so far it has been viewed everything except a Muslim rebellion, while the reports from the field indicated that it was a Muslim rebellion first and last. Why this interpretation was missed by so many scholars in the past is an inexplicable enigma. WhileHindu participation was based on their perceived or real grievances and was limited in scale, the heart and soul of Muslims was in the revolt and it was shared in all parts of Indo-Pakistan subcontinent - from province to province and from villages through towns into cities. d) The book also opens anew chapter on the degree to which Christian evangelism had taken hold of British imperial effort in India, used and exploited it to advance missionary efforts in the South Asian colony. It also reveals the degree to which Christians had become intolerant of other faiths.

The Oxford History of the British Empire is a major new assessment of the Empire in the light of recent scholarship and the progressive opening of historical records. Volume III covers the long nineteenth century, from the achievement of American independence in the 1780s to the eve of world war in 1914. This was the period of Britain's greatest expansion as both empire-builder and dominant world power.

Before 1947, India was a dependency of the United Kingdom and consisted of British India, and the Princely States. It encompassed the entire area which now forms the four countries of India, Pakistan, Myanmar, and Bangladesh. Industrialisation was limited and lop-sided. Agricultural sector exhibited features of feudal and semi-feudal institutions, resulting into low productivity. The political system was fragmented and the national unity was in danger. The Constitution of India adopted on November 26, 1949, became operative on January 26, 1950. It provides for two layers of Government, one at the Central level, and the other at the level of the States. This book presents a comprehensive description and analysis of the constitution, system of government and dynamics of politics in India, a geographically and demographically vast country inhabited by people professing different religions, speaking variety of languages and adhering to diverse socio-cultural ethos.

This classic collection by eminent scholars takes a critical look at the mobilizations, genealogies, and interpretive conflicts that have attended efforts to make India Hindu since the rise to power of Hindu political parties from 1980. The second edition has been updated with a new preface in which Ludden provides an incisive analysis of the recently held elections and highlights how Hindutva operates inside India's political mainstream.

Can there be dialogue between Muslims and Christians? Can we overcome the long history of antagonism between the two largest religious communities in the world, who occupy nearly sixty percent of believing humanity? In The Muslim-Christian Dialogue, 20 essays address these vital questions as they explore the promise and problems of dialogue between the two great traditions. Here Muslims and Christians speak of their faith with passion and insight as they seek to move beyond mutual antagonism and caricatures (the Muslim as terrorist, the Christian as crusader) toward mutual understanding.The essays cover a range of issues from the encounter of Islam and Christianity with modernity to Islam in Africa, from the role of women to the understanding of Jesus in Islam and Christianity, and the role of the Prophet Muhammad in Muslim piety. Rather than seeking to convert the other, these internationally known scholars and religious leaders contribute to mutual understanding between Christians and Muslims.
