Though the real subject of history is the political activity of man through the times, a mere chronicle of battles and sieges is no longer found interesting. The old method of dealing with this subject is likely to kill interest in its study.

'A History of Modern India' dates from the rise of European settlements to the establishment of Independence in 1947.
