THE SEPOY MUTINY AND THE REOVOLT OF 1857
The great outbreak of 1857 is a memorable episode in Indian History. There is no other event in the history of India of which we possess so many contemporary or nearly contemporary records and accounts, and memoirs, reviews, reminiscences, and hitorical studies. Yet there is no end of controversy, even now, not only as regards the cause of the movement, but also about its precise character. It is primarily this aspect of the question which forms the subject matter of his book.
The book is divided into four parts: The First century of British Rule in India; The Revolt; The Heros and The Review.
