History of Constitution of India: Charter Acts and Company Rule in India 1773-1858

Read the Free Preview HERE.

 The book is written by Sumir Sharma to fulfil the requirements of the students of the Post Graduate course in History of Punjab University. It meets the need of the Paper HIS 213: Constitutional Development in Modern India 1773 – 1947 Unit I and Paper HIS 211: Modern India Political Process, Unit III.

The content of the book is also relevant to the students of Indian Polity and Indian Constitution pursuing the course of Post Graduate in Political Science. It is also suitable for the students of Law course.

The content of the book is equally relevant to General Studies Main paper II. The content provides material for the first section which reads, “Indian Constitution – historical underpinnings, evolution …” The book is also relevant for undergraduate classes honours course.

It has eight chapters and two Appendix. They are as follows.

Chapter 1: The Brief History of the East India Company.
Chapter 2: The Regulating Act, 1773
Chapter 3: Pitt’s India Act, 1784
Chapter 4: Charter Act, 1793
Chapter 5: Charter Act, 1813
Chapter 6: Charter Act, 1833
Chapter 7: Charter Act, 1853
Chapter 8: Act of Better Government of India 1858

There are two Appendix. In Appendix I, there is an essay on the sources which are used for writing the contents of this book. In Appendix II, the suggestions are provided to make the book more interactive.

The book is developed as a textbook. It is written in a narrative style. On every topic, the content is written in point format. For the point format, it is meant that every paragraph explains its main heading. The paragraph is given a title or a number. It helps in writing the answers in the examination. The purpose is that the readers and the students can quickly develop an answer to any question on the topics explained in the book.

The book explains the Charter Acts as the historical background of the History of the Constitution of India. It is evident that my next volume will be on the legislation during the Crown rule in India. I will soon publish the relevant next volume. I am presently working on that volume.

I will also write the Hindi version of this volume and release it in June 2018. The free download of that book will also be made available for five days. Keep in touch. To remain updated, subscribe to this blog. Check for subscription in the sidebar.

Syllabus Based Free Wikipedia Books

Attention BA III 6 Semester History Students:

You can download the following book for WORLD HISTORY 18TH - 20TH CENTURY.

Click HERE to Download the book. 

The book is compiled as per the contents of the Unit Structure of the Syllabus. 
The relevant articles are arranged as per the sequences of the topics. 

The students may find some of the articles quite elaborate and exhaustive. They may not be able to reduce it to the note format. However, if the students show some patience and intelligence, they will find every possible point explained in those articles. 

The map work is also developed by articles. The location of the city is shown on a map in every section. 

Soon You will find a book written by the Blogger. The book will be in digital format. You will be able to read on your mobile, iPhone, Tablet or PC on a free Kindle software.

I believe that this book will also interest the aspirants for Civil Services. The book is arranged as per the requirement of the Punjab University Chandigarh syllabus. I have some reservations about the nature of the curriculum.

One argument may emphasise the reason for the contention. There are six semesters at BA level. They have given only one semester to World History. I hope that it conveys the real issue.
