The British Achievement in India


The spirit underlying British statesmanship in London now; the spirit which entirely animates our judgment on problems such as India. The Indian question as put by the Indian leaders who demand a great change in the character and control of the administration of the country, and in a reversal by the speaker, "Has England the right to leave India?" Some clear estimate, however perfunctory, of what the British have done in India. The unfounded charge that the British have neglected the cultural advancement of the country. An examination of the British in India, looking specifically at literacy, language, defence, social order, public finance, trade, population growth, establishing an association with the Princes. Issues which must be settled if permanent safeguards are to be made. Consequences of the British leaving India. The aim of Britain to give India full responsible government, but with the British Parliament as the judge of the stages in that advance toward independence. What a non-British internal war would mean. Some comments on Mr. Gandhi. Encouraging the whole world to get the right perspective of this problem, and realizing its significance for world prosperity. Returning to the report given by the Simon Commission.
