REVOLUTION IN INDIA by Frances Gunther


Email this review


For 18 years revolution has been in progress in India. Only Britain is impervious to its significance. But on the British government rests the responsibility as to whether it be a bloodless revolution -- or another war. Mrs. John Gunther speaks out bluntly, in the most impassioned plea for Indian independence that I have read. Its value is somewhat counterbalanced by its violence of denunciation of British misrule; and weakened by a flippant, smart-slecky style. But she presents cogent facts to support her thesis, in a loosely collected group of speeches and articles. She marshals the steps that would have to be taken if England is to accept a revolution in her outmoded foreign policy; she challenges America to back an independent India.
