British Foreign Policy, 1874-1914: The Role of India

By Sneh Mahajan | Go to book overview

Notes

Preface
1
I have mostly used 'the Indian Empire' and 'India' for what was the British Empire in South Asia and was known as 'India' until August 1947. I have generally used 'Britain' and 'Great Britain', though it was usual to use 'England' and 'English' at least until 1914.

See note by E. L. Altham, 10 August 1901, PRO, War Office, 106/48, E 3/2 and a comprehensive survey published by the War Office in 1907 on 'Military Resources of the Russian Empire', PRO, W.O. 33409.

Bourne (1970); Steiner (1977); Chamberlain (1988). C.J. Lowe (1967) has devoted one chapter to the defence of India in the 1880s.

In fact, in Millman (1979) covering over 600 pages there are hardly any index entries on India. This is as much true of Heller (1983).

Martel (1986:295).

Amongst these, mention may be made of Greaves (1959) and Gillard (1977). Two journals also devoted an issue each to this question: International History Review vol. 2 (1980), and South Asian Studies vol. 21 (1987).
