The Indian National Congress: Centenary Hindsights

by D. A. Low (Editor)




The Indian National Congress, India's most important political party, was founded in 1885. These papers, by leading historians and political scientists, address a wide range of topics concerning the Congress's history and function, including its affinities with the Italian Risorgimanto; its early links with British radicals; the role of women in the congress; its relationships with the Indian peasantry, merchant communities, and Hindu nationalist groups; its success in the Hindi belt; its acceptance of partition; Jinnah's link with the Congress; and its caste and regional composition.
