- It covers the analytical part nicely. It will help you improve your mains history answer writing skills.
- It is written more like a movie script. If you are not an avid reader of storybooks you will really struggle to focus. It is more like a sleeping pill (especially for those that find history boring).
- Biggest drawback: It doesn’t cover events that occurred prior to 1857. You have to cover the left out portion from A Brief History of Modern India by Rajiv Ahir (Spectrum).
- A Brief History of Modern India by Rajiv Ahir (Spectrum) is itself a huge book (700+ pages). You may not get enough time to cover Bipin Chandra. You should try skimming through this book to cover some important topics.
