Excerpt from The Government of India
This book was written in all its substantial parts before the Government took steps to meet the conditions which the war had created in India. I venture to publish it, however, because it indicates a different point of view from that which appears to be animating the Government, though in some respects their practical proposals do not materially difier from mine, but also - and this is the chief reason - because during the time of transition upon which we are entering, and which the montagu-chehnsford Report does no more than inaugurate, it is important that we should understand the origin and evolution of our Indian connections. India is a going concern, a problem in organic politics. Its needs cannot be met by an adjustment here and an adjustment there; they have to be viewed in their wide sweep. This spirit will have to be maintained after the montagu-chelmsford Report has produced its first harvest of legislation.
