The life of Rabindranth Tagore was inextricably tied to India's struggle for independence. That struggle struck at the heart of the British Empire. Together, "Rabindranath Tagore" and "The Modern British Empire" tell the story of colonialism from the perspective of both the conquered, and the conquerors. These two books were written separately; "Rabindranath" came first and out of that research grew the impulse to write "The Modern British Empire." Some material from the first book overlaps with the second. This serves to reinforce content for students new to the information. It is natural for students to regard events of the nineteenth and early twentieth century as remote and unrelated to their lives. These two books illustrate how closely tied the centuries are. Not only is the dynamic of conquest uniform throughout the ages, but actions of leaders and nations in earlier times shaped the world with which the students live today.show more
