Dadabhai Naoroji (1825?1917), popularly known as the ?Grand Old Man of India?, was a prominent figure of Indian nationalism. In his public life spanning over six decades, he wrote thousands of letters to political leaders and intellectuals in India, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere, most of which no longer survive. This volume includes many correspondence, collected at the National Archives of India, which open a window to his political career and the broader contours of the early Indian nationalist movement and Victorian politics in Great Britain.
