The Colonial Subjugation of India tells the story of the formation of the British Empire in India and presents a minutely detailed narrative of the violence inflicted on the people of this part of the world to conquer it and the instruments of coercion put in place to rule over it.

Beginning with the arrival of Portuguese, Dutch, French, and, finally, British mercantile ships in the Indian Ocean throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, this book charts the course of Britain’s rise as the dominant colonial power in the Indian subcontinent. It traces India’s history of anti-colonial resistance starting with the Battle of Plassey in 1757 and explains how the country attained freedom through a long and sustained struggle extending over nearly two centuries; how the revolt of 1857 was an important moment in this struggle; and how the national liberation movement of the period between the 1920s and 1947 culminated in independence on 15 August 1947, representing the triumph of anti-colonial Indian nationalism over British imperialism. An important and groundbreaking study of a crucial period of modern Indian history
