The Rising Star

Show Summary Details


The relationship between Gokhale and Sir William Wedderburn, who became chairman of the British Committee of the Indian National Congress in 1889, is explored in this chapter. For the following thirty years, the British Committee was the pivot of the Congress propaganda in Britain. Sir William Wedderburn was its moving spirit, and the journal India, its mouthpiece. It is impossible to understand the course of Gokhale’s political career without understanding the personality and politics of Sir William Wedderburn.
