Routledge Revivals: India and the Simon Report (1930)
Beskrivelse: First published in 1930, this book sought to explain to western readers the vital necessity of approaching the 'Indian problem' from the emerging national standpoint in India, and of appreciating its ideals. The author relates this necessity directly to the task undertaken by the Simon Commission in 1928 to make a survey of India and the resultant suggestions for constitutional changes in their report in early 1930. This work represents an attempt to bridge the gulf between India and Britain, one which appeared to be widening at the time of the report. This book will be of interest to students of colonialism and colonial India, especially as a prelude to its independence in 1947.
