This Book Studies the grown of political awakening in the present Uttar Pradesh in the later 19th century. This province was considered to be politically backward as no important organisation of the educated middle class like the Poona Sarvajanik Sabha or the Indian Association could emerge in this Province before the establishment of the Indian National Congress. The author has also examined the impact of this organisation on the Political life of this Province. Aligarh under the leadership of Syed Ahmed became the centre of the anticongressites and this camp opposed the demand of the Congress. The bureaucracy supported him. Syed Ahmed wanted 'nomination' instead of 'election' for the legislative councils. In 1896 Syed Mahmud and Theodore Beck Prepared a memorandum on behalf of the Muhammadan Angio-Oriental Defence Association in which separate electorate for the Muslims in the municipalities and the legislative councils was demanded.
