The book on the Mutiny and its Impact, covering the Period from 1857 to 1884, has deep bearing on the political and constitutional developments in the annals of Indian sub-continent. The causes of the mutiny depict the sense of frustration and anger against the functioning of the East India Company. Its administrative end became a glaring phenomenon in 1857 and its functions were transferred to the British government which remained in power for nine decades-indeed a crucial period in our history. The Viceroy became the overall incharge of the administrative machinery of the new set-up. The theme has been divided into twenty-five chapters with a comprehensive detail. The period of about three decades commences with historic first and second Sikh Wars after the demise of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, a powerful ruler of the Punjab and covers the period of Lord Dalhousie, Lord Canning, revolt and the Act of 1858, Indian Councils Act of 1861, the Indian middle class India under the crown, several political developments, Lord Ripon and the constitutional reformes, Lord Dufferin, England, Russia and Afghanistan, Madan Mohan Malaviya and Copal Krishna Gokhale-their public activities, servants of India Society, Conquest of Burma, and last but not the least the development of education in the Indian sub-continent. This indeed gives a vivid picture of historic personalities and significant events attached to their long-drawn socio-economic and political career.
