On the eve of the fiftieth anniversary of Indian independence Anthony Low examines anew the distinctive character of perhaps the most momentous struggle of the twentieth century. He shows how the struggle was conditioned by the ambiguity of the British position, determined to hold fast to their Indian empire yet reluctant to offer unyielding resistance to their nationalist opponents. Britain and Indian Nationalism makes a major contribution to the historiography of modern India, to Britain's relations with its empire, and to the history of decolonization in the twentieth century.

Book Description:

On the fifteth anniversary of Indian independence Anthony Low examines anew the distinctive character of perhaps the most momentous such struggle of the twentieth century. He shows how the struggle was conditioned by the ambiguity of the British position, determined to hold fast to their Indian empire yet reluctant to offer unyielding resistance to their nationalist opponents.Imprint of Ambiguity makes a major contribution to the historiography of modern India, to Britain's relations with its empire, and to the history of decolonisation in the twentieth century.

Review:

"Author and editor of more than 15 books on British Empire and Commonwealth history, Low has produced a number of works in which his analysis of India is contextualized by his mastery of Asian, and especially African, history....this valuable work encapsulates Low's thinking and research on the topic." Choice

"Low has written a meticulously researched and tighly reasoned book analyzing the defining thirteen years of what is often called the Indian struggle for freedom." Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"...represents fresh archival investigation, and the list of these archives is as long as your arm. No question but that this is a very scholarly peice of work. I can only hope that in time it will be on the shelves of all those with a serious interest in Western colonial experience generally, in Britain's Indian experience particularly..." Peter Ward Fay, The Journal of Asian Studies

"Britain and Indian Nationalism is a thoughtful and judicious study, and will figure prominently in discussions about the end of Britain's Raj." Douglas M. Peers, Journal of Asian History

"...this is an engaging series of essays on the encounters between Britain and the Indian nationalists--one that will be of great interest and value to students in this area." Sankaran Krishna, Journal of Asian & African Studies

"Low's study in its finer nuances brings us a step closer to fathoming the depths of British colonial ambition in India." Sudipta Sen, Journal of Modern History

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. India's struggle for independence was arguably the most momentous of the twentieth century, and central to it was the generation of powerful nationalist forces. In a series of detailed studies Anthony Low shows how the ambiguity of the British position conditioned the distinctive character of this struggle: how the British determination to hold fast their Indian empire (unlike the Americans in the Philippines) prior to 1942 was nonetheless complemented by a reluctance to resist their nationalist opponents in the unyielding ways of the French in Vietnam and the Dutch in Indochina. Much that Gandhi did, Professor Low concludes, would have been unnecessary in the Philippines and impossible in Indonesia and Vietnam, but astutely fitted the peculiar conditions of the nationalist struggle against the British in India. Published on the fiftieth anniversary of Indian independence, Britain and Indian Nationalism makes a major contribution to the historiography of modern India, to Britain's relations with its empire, and to the history of decolonisation in the twentieth century.
