Sir Surendranath Banerjea , a foremost political leader of Bengal, dedicated his life to opposing colonialism through moderate but liberal methods. A Nation in Making, is an autobiographical work reprinted by Rupa. It renders political events of late 19th and early 20th century Bengal in magnificent detail. His failures become his stepping stones to success, and in the latter part of the book, he indeed becomes its hero.

His achievements in the public sphere are punctuated by personal memoirs, interactions with people of renown, many of whom were his friends. He expresses admiration for Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar who helped legalise widow-remarriage. His father died before he won his case with the Civil Service Commissioners. He was disqualified with his friend Behari Lal due to a discrepancy in age. He cleared the examination again in An inadvertent mistake cost him his position as assistant magistrate in Sylhet.

His dismissal from the Civil Services seemed fatal and one friend even advised him to start a new life in Australia. He gave up active teaching when elected to the Imperial Legislative Council in which involved frequent travel. Theirs is a heaven-appointed task. Again, the Indian National Congress in was convened just three days after his beloved wife died. Truly a great statesman, he always put personal sorrows aside for duty towards nation.

He involved himself in such cases, using his newspaper to demand justice. His indomitable spirit caused the Englishmen to pun on his name — Surrender Not! President of the Indian National Congress twice, he was elected to the Calcutta Corporation and remained in office for two decades.

His work as minister brought great impetus to medical education; but ultimately remarkable was his unceasing work during the partition — and through the years for its reversal. His opinions regarding the Minto-Morley Council, Montagu-Chelmsford Reforms, participation in Swadeshi, his fight for making Calcutta University autonomous kept Banerjea at the helm of plenary action.

This book is an excellent treatise of history in the making set forth in crisp and lucid English hardly heard today. Banerjea weaves back and forth through political happenings, but hardly mentions being knighted in This book should belong to every personal collection as it is easy to read and reference repeatedly.

Annotations and footnotes on historical figures mentioned here would enhance its worth. An index at the end is absolutely necessary for future editions.
