Administrations And Impeachments
A.D. 1761 TO A.D. 1785 Clive and Warren Hastings need to be bracketed together in the history of India. They were the men who made our Empire, and they were both impeached for their methods by their countrymen. And bot...
Akbar The Great
A.D. 1556 TO A.D. 1605 Here is a subject indeed! Considering the time--a time when Elizabeth of England found that England ready to support her in beheading her woman-cousin, when Charles IX. of France idly gave the or...
A.D. 1657 TO A.D. 1707 With Aurungzebe, the Middle Age of Indian History ends. From the date of his death, interest finally ceases to centre round the dying dynasties of India, and, changing sides, concerns itself absolut...
Campaigns Of The Crescent
A.D. 1001 TO A.D. 1200 Part I For close on these two hundred years the northern plains of India were a battle-field. Winter after winter, as the sun's power declined, and the curious sec...
Campaigns Of The Crescent 2
A.D. 1001 TO A.D. 1200 Part II The Great Raider Mahmud being now put past, the Campaigns of the Crescent continued in feebler fashion. In truth, for a few years Mahomed and Masud, the dea...
A.D. 700 TO A.D. 1001 These, as has been said, are the Dark Ages of Hindustan. She has ever been the prey of personality, the willing victim of vitality. From the year B.C. 620, when her real history begins, until now, th...
A.D. 1389 TO A.D. 1514 For over a hundred and twenty years India remained free from a master hand. It is true that the puppet-king Mahmud, who had fled from Delhi on that fateful night of the 15th of January 1389, returne...
Freedom And Frontiers
A.D. 1834 TO A.D. 1850 What was the cause which led England to refuse a continuance of its charter to the East India Company? It was the price of tea. Before this, all considerations as to whether the Company had done ...

India In The Beginning Of The Eighteenth Century
A.D. 1707 Before making our volte face, and in future chronicling the history of India from the Western standpoint, it will be well to see what this India was which England set herself deliberately to annex. So f...
Jahangir And Nurjahan
A.D. 1605 TO A.D. 1627 These names, "Conqueror of the World" and "Light of the World," are inseparable. It is as well they should be so, for they supply us with the only excuse which Prince Salim could put forward for ...
Manners Morals And Missionaries
A.D. 1850 TO A.D. 1857 Beyond the second Burmese war and the annexation of Oude there is little to be recorded in this short period of seven years. The former passed on, as did every war, to annexation; yet once again the...
Plots And Counterplots
A.D. 1748 TO A.D. 1751 When the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle ended open warfare between the French and the English, both naturally turned their eyes more keenly upon India. What they saw there was stimulating to those who ...
A.D. 1751 TO A.D. 1757 Never was the strange susceptibility of India to the influence of personal vitality better exemplified than in the case of Robert Clive. When, in 1751, he first emerged--a good head and shoulders ...
A.D. 1757 TO A.D. 1767 It was in the year 1757, just one hundred years before the Mutiny, that the battle of Plassey was fought, and that by the enthronement of a Nawab who owed everything to English arms the East India C...
