The book presents an account of nationalist revolutionary activities during three decades from 1907, as recorded by the Home Department of British India.

Stung by ‘terrorist activities’, the then Home department, for the benefit of senior officials in the administration, had published a number of secret political reports of Which two publications – Political Trouble in India (1907-1917) and Terrorism in India (1917-1936) – are of great importance.

While the Political Trouble in India (1907-1917) is the source book of the famous ‘Sedition Committee Report’ prepared by the British, the second compilation, i.e. Terrorism in India (1917-1936) is also of considerable importance, for, the same was “intended to assist those, mainly policy officers, whose duties require them to make a detailed study of the whole or portions of the past history of Terrorism.”
