Book Description
Our investigation in this volume commences in 1932 when Krishna Menon along with Ellen Wilkinson, Monica Whately and Leonard Matters were commissioned by the India League to proceed on to India. The group was entrusted with a mission to study in depth the nature of the authoritarian regime initiated by Wedgwood Benn and carried out in cold blood by the combined efforts of Samuel Hoare and Willingdon. India that they saw had been witnessing deepening economic crisis, mounting communal tension, increasing ascendancy of official repression against the Congress movement and also the rise of overwhelming pressure from below for a radical transformation of the society having their impact on Gandhian strategy and tactics. From London, Menon had been watching closely the failure of the western democracies to contain the sinister advent of Fascism. As a perceptive observer, Menon went about discerning for himself the laws of motion of capitalism in its historical phase of corporations and combinations and delineating the legitimising process of the capitalist states. With his immense insight into the existing political and economic systems. Menon had galvanized the India League into an effective platform for struggle. By 1932 the League committed itself to Swaraj. It had become an uncomfortable organization for the Conservatives and the Theosophists who deserted it and the League affiliated itself to the mass movement in India.
