This book dispels the received wisdom that the Plassey conspiracy was an 'Indian born' conspiracy, that the British had no 'calculated plotting' behind the Plassey revolution, that it was the 'internal crisis in Bengal which inevitably brought in the British' and that the British conquest was almost 'accidental'. By making an in-depth analysis of the genesis of and the circumstances leading to the Plassey conspiracy and revolution, Professor Sushil Chaudhury discounts the 'collaboration thesis' as well and shows conclusively that it was the British who not only engineered and encouraged the conspiracy but tried their best till the last moment before the battle of Plassey to persuade the Indian conspirators to stick to the British 'project' of a revolution.
