The question of Indian self-government has again come to the fore with the British offer of March 17 (described elsewhere in this issue). Having from time to time published articles giving the British point of view, we are now printing the following statement of the Indian Nationalist case by an outstanding Indian scholar. Mr. Bannerjea was one of the twelve original members of the Committee of Intellectual Cooperation of the League of Nations. He resigned in 1924, and after serving as adviser to the International Institute of Agriculture in Rome and to the Bureau of Agricultural Economics in Washington, he was appointed three and a half years ago to his present position of lecturer on Indian History and Public Administration in the University of Berlin. In addition to contributions to leading European and American publications, Mr. Bannerjea is the author of three books: India’s Nation Builders (1919), The Present Position and Future Possibilities of Indian Agriculture (1925) and The Place of the Indian Village in World Commerce, which is about to be published.
