This book studies the Congress organization in the United Provinces in the period between 1936-42 and the manner in which the party dealt with the challenges thrown out by the British government. The author records the growth of the new ideological trends and the process of mass mobilization of the party. This book discusses in detail the party organization as it functioned under the protective umbrella of the Congress ministry. The political roles of the students and the youth, the labor movements and the agrarian upsurge have been studied in detail. The author also studies the post-ministry ethos from 1939 to 1942. Here the main themes discussed are: the attempts by Gandhi to bring cohesion to an organization that had become unwieldy and dispersed, the changing attitude of the leadership towards the War, the scope of individual satyagraha, and the specific situation that gave rise to the Quit India Movement. Making extensive use of the police abstracts of intelligence prepared by the CID, which have seldom been used until now, and interviews with freedom fighters with a range of political leanings, this important book provides a fascinating account of a crucial phase in the Indian National Movement.
