The Ghadar Movement by Grewal, Puri and Banga

Posted in New Publications by Pippa on November 5, 2013

Threghadare eminent historians have come out with a book on the Ghadar movement, which was launched 100 years ago and played a defining role in militant activism and opposition to the British rule in India. The book has been written by Prof J S Grewal, Prof Harish K Puri and Prof Indu Banga. It spans 613 pages and is divided across five sections with thirteen contributors in total, including the book’s three editors, two UK scholars (Darshan Tatla and Shalini Sharma), and several others from Panjab, England and North America. Besides the individual chapters, the book also contains over one hundred pages of primary source material (mainly in Gurmukhi), including some extensive excerpts from the original Ghadar newspaper published in San Francisco from 1913 on.
