Why was Bismarck interested in England's problem «The Defence of India»? What was the part played by India in Berlin's diplomatic circles during the time of Imperialism? How did Kaiser Wilhelm II and the German Foreign Office react to growing Indian nationalism? How did Berlin become the center of Indian revolutionaries during the First World War? These are some of the questions dealt with in this book which is based mainly on documentary sources not previously used. Interesting and provocative material interpreted by a well informed author.
