Item description for The British Conquest and Dominion of India: 2 Volume Set by Sir Penderel Moon...

The British Conquest and Dominion of India was a historical episode falling within fairly definite dates. It ended, without doubt, on August 15, 1947, when India and Pakistan were declared independent. Its beginning cannot be fixed with quite the same certainty. It is generally dated from the battle of Plassey, June 23, 1757, which made the British the potential masters of Bengal. But they did not immediately realize their power or exploit it to the fullest, and it was not until 15 years later that they began to govern the province themselves. Moreover, during the ten years preceding Plassey, events had taken place in south India which, by revealing the weakness of Indian rulers, had prepared the ground for the subsequent Britis mastery of Bengal; and on this account the real starting point of the whole episode may be regarded as the French attempts under Dupleix, dating from 1748, to gain control over the Indian rulers of the Carnatic and Hyderabad. On this basis the total period involved is just about two hundred years. Part One of this volume covers roughly the first half of it, during which time the East India Company, aided and controled to some extent by the Crown, conquered India and set up a British system of administration under which it ruled most of the country until the disaster of the Mutiny (1857-1858). After this full responsibility for the government of India passed to the Crown.
