From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-10-There is much to like in this history of the British presence in India through the independence movement. The story is told mostly from an Indian perspective, with great depth of detail. The often-remarkable sepia photographs offer texture to the narrative. Young researchers will find answers to their questions, information about somewhat obscure personages, and jumping-off points for further inquiry. However, there are numerous annoying aspects of this book as well. Of the two maps, the one of Asia is intended to place India in a regional context; much of Europe is pictured, but England is not. Immediately following is a detailed political map of India during the British colonial period, before the partition of Pakistan. Unfortunately, this one is so detailed that it is difficult to locate anything. There is neither a map of their geographic relationship nor a discussion of the relations between the two countries today. Organized chronologically, the story is complex, and for the most part the narrative proceeds clearly. Occasionally, however, the text becomes awkward, and the phrasing, artificial. Finally, while many URLs lead to opening pages of the Web sites, there is no hint of how to proceed to anything relevant. Despite these flaws, the book does address this conflict thoroughly, so libraries with corresponding curriculum needs might consider adding it.
