Emergence of the Congress

Emergence of the Congress Sudhir Chandra The Emergence of the Indian National Congress by S R Mehrotra; Vikas Publications, 1971; pp 461; Rs 60, TILL about a decade back Indian nationalism used to be treated as almost co-extensive with the Indian National Congress. The significant events necessarily preceding it rarely received more than an introductory survey. Application of serious research techniques and efforts in order to understand the nature and course of Indian nationalism, however, has underlined the importance of analysing the background to the Indian National Congress. The result has been a series of books attempting a comprehensive account of the developments that eventually paved the way for the Congress. Mehrotra's is the most exhaustive work in this series.
