History of Education in Modern India, 1757 2007 presents a historical overview of education in Modern India from its colonial beginnings in 1757 through the birth of an Independent India in 1947 till the early years of the new millennium. This revised and updated edition reviews controversial issues like the introduction of English education in India, the authorship of the education dispatch of 1854, the genesis of Curzon's university reform of 1899 1905 and also the implementation of the new national policy of education promulgated in 1986 in the background of the shifting political scenario in the last decade of the last millennium as well as the developments and the changes that have taken place in education in our country in the early years of the new millennium following globalisation. Meticulously researched and lucidly written, the book is based on the critical use of archival sources, newspapers and private papers and is essential reading not only for students at the graduate and postgraduate levels but also for a larger audience in India and abroad with an interest in education in India.
