ALLAN OCTAVIAN HUME: 'Father of the Indian National Congress' (1829-1912) A BIOGRAPHY
ALLAN OCTAVIAN HUME: 'Father of the Indian National Congress' (1829-1912) A BIOGRAPHY
Description
About the Book:

Allan Octavian Hume (1829-1912) is best known for his key role in the creation and early development of the Indian National Congress, but he also had a long and a controversial role in the Indian Civil Service (ICS). The only biography of him is a brief memoir written by his like-minded compatriot, Sir William Wedderburn, published in 1913. After years of original research on Hume's life in India, Edward Moulton, in this critical re-edition, presents for the first time an incisive and comprehensive appraisal of Wedderburn's biography.

The special relationship between Wedderburn and Hume was grounded in their liberal critique of the British Raj, consolidated by their mutual identification with India's new educated classes and anchored in their strong public commitment to Indian nationalism.

This re-edition will be of particular interest to students and academics in modern South Asian history and politics and the members of the general public who share a general interest in these fields.

About the Author:

William Wedderburn, the author, was a member of the Indian Civil Services (ICS) and British MP (1893-1900). He was associated with the Indian National Congress from its inception and became its president twice, in 1889 and 1910.

Edward C. Moulton is Professor of History at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
