More than 4 weeks availability
This is the first book to appear on British intelligence operations based in both India and London, which defended the Indian Empire against subversion during the first two decades of the twentieth century. It is concerned with the threat to the British Raj posed by the Indian revolutionary movement, the resulting development of the imperial intelligence service and the role it played during the First World War.
Richard Popplewell, with commendable archival industry, brings together in very readable form a lot of interesting details about their activities [Indian revolutionaries], and the policies of the British intelligence officials, also few in number despite their extensive international links, who scotched the revolutionary efforts.
