    First half of the book, in which the advent of the Europeans in India is described, has been explained in a story-telling way. National movement part seemed a bit biased but spoken in a concise manner. Almost all the facts are covered for competitive exam preparation in India.

    This book is brief infact its brief of brief (please don't get confused). It covers India's political and independent struggle from 1857-1950. The writing is quite dry just like a textbook. It might work as a reference for someone who is well aware of that era but if you are new to the topic then you might get overwhelm with so many things and little descriptions.

    A strictly exam-centered book for UPSC aspirants that condenses content from various sources into one. A more comprehensive coverage is ensured to complement Bipin Chandra's "History of Modern India".

    Serves its intended purpose. Crisp, concise and covers a whole lot of ground, with curous tidbits thrown in between.

    If you are using this for UPSC or other competitive exams then it is good but it fares badly when we look from a historian's perspective. If you are using this for UPSC or other competitive exams then it is good but it fares badly when we look from a historian's perspective.

    A brief history means a very concise one. This books just lists the important events of Indian history. Don't read if you want to explore various aspects of the freedom struggle.

    Fairly interesting read on Indian history from the beginning of late 15th Century Portuguese entry to the formation of constituent assembly and 1st independent functioning parliament of free India in 1952. It’s fairly descriptive and provides enough for understanding, analysis and an unbiased judgement. Best part about this read is that it can be read purely as a text for educational purpose, or even as a pure non-fiction literary work; it consolidates both worlds finely. Only drawback is too much Fairly interesting read on Indian history from the beginning of late 15th Century Portuguese entry to the formation of constituent assembly and 1st independent functioning parliament of free India in 1952.

Only drawback is too much information confined in a comparatively smaller space. That said, it definitely serves the intention.

    This book gives a clear picture of events that took place right from the begining of Portugese(Vasco-da-gama) in 1498 to present India 2018. This book is very good as it highlights th major incidents in the Indian struggle. It is very nice upto 1947 timeline and I fell short post independence ...the author though covered many points was in a rush to pack up the things and completed in so soon.

    This is one such book which is suggested to every UPSC aspirant for the exam. The summary given at the end of every chapter makes this book more useful as it becomes a ready reckoner for revision at the last moment. If you are appearing in any kind of exam which ask questions relating to modern history then this should be your book to clear that section of the exam.

    Although it appears to be a very small book, it contains lots of content with respect to what happened in the history of Modern India. It covers most of the movements if not all, of course at a very high level yet in a readable format.
