9780195658965: Selected Writings of Allan Octavian Hume: District Administration in North India, Rebellion and Reform, Volume One: 1829-1867

This is the first volume of the selected writings of Allan Octavian Hume, the founder of the Indian National Congress. It focuses on Hume's years in district administration in what was then the North Western Provinces. What lends special interest to this early phase of his life was that some eleven years of it were spent continuously in one district, Etawah. From these documents Hume emerges as a committed reformer in the British liberal utilitarian mode, but one who was very sensitive to local Indian opinion.

Book Description Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2004. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. This is the first of four volumes of the writings of Allan Octavian Hume (1829-1912), a genuine British liberal radical, who began his professional life as an Indian Civil Service (ICS) officer, evolved into a persistent critic of the Raj and became famous as the principal founder of the Indian National Congress the political organization which led India to independence in 1947. This volume focuses mainly on Hume's years in district administration in the North-Western Provinces, now part of the state of Uttar Pradesh. Hume was immersed in this region for seventeen years, eleven of which were spent in one district, Etawah, where he was magistrate and collector from early 1856 to the spring of 1867, except for two years (1861-3) of sick leave in Britain. He lived through the thick of the Rebellion of 1857-9, blamed the outbreak on misguided British policies and was criticized by fellow-officers for being too generous towards the insurgents. Hume emerges, from these documents on his years in district administration, as a committed, liberal radical reformer, but one who was especially sensitive to Indian opinion. From his perspective, this meant that at times his European ideology had to be modified to fit Indian conditions or its application postponed until it found local acceptance. He tried to govern in consultation and cooperation with Indian officials and local leaders. Printed Pages: 908 with frontispiece. Size: 22.5 Cms x 29 Cms. Bookseller Inventory # 002173
