THE INTELLECTUAL ROOTS OF THE INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT IN INDIA -1893-1918 by DR PRITHWINDRA MUKHERJEE
with a Foreword by Jacques Attali

The independence of India in the Western collective imagination seems to have the father figure of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. However, The Mass Movement launched by the Mahatma from 1919 was not born from nothing. For a long time, indeed, we have omitted an intense creative period which preceded him; it is the fundamentally radical program of Indian Revolutionaries of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century which was in complete contradiction with the battle of Gandhi with the zeal of non-violence.
In this well-researched book which is his doctoral thesis of state headed by Raymond Aron and supported under the chairmanship of Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie 1986, Mukherjee makes us to see the philosophical, historical and religious aspects, in short, the intellectual aspect of Indian nationalism. From Rammohan Roy to Sri Aurobindo - through Karl Marx and Rabindranath Tagore, the whole corpus of Indian nationalism’s ideological influence is analyzed by the Author, and in light of this culture it has a centuries-old history.
Hitherto largely ignored, an overview of the activities of revolutionaries in India as one of their networks incorporated outside the country (England, Russia, Germany, France, USA and several Asian countries ...) is also revealed for the first time. To destabilize the English yoke, Radical Nationalists did not hesitate, "during the First World War, to turn to William II and Germany, pursuing a policy of logistics, directly relating to the Middle East, who gave them special attention.
Supported by many archives which are inaccessible till today, there are unpublished personal papers or direct interviews with the protagonists of the Movement. The Work of Mukherjee Prithwindra is undeniably a major contribution to the historiography of India.
