Abstract

Indian historians are playing a major role in the development of the discipline of modern Indian history, a role which is bound to increase as more resources and talent go into that field in India. However, British historians of the 1970s and 1980s were instrumental in placing the discipline on a more scientific footing and some of their contributions will without any doubt be of lasting value. This rapid survey reviews the contribution made by some British historians to the historical literature on modern India. What is presented is a study of trends, with the focus on works which have played a significant role in the intellectual history of the discipline.
