In 1932 Menon, Ellen Wilkinson, Monica Whately, and Leonard Matters were all commissioned by the India League to travel to India to mount an in-depth study of the authoritarian regime initiated by Wedgwood Benn and the cold-blooded tactics employed to enforce its authority.

This account follows the group that witnessed a deepening economic crisis, mounting communal tension, increasing ascendancy of official repression against the Congress movement, and the rising pressure for a radical transformation of the Indian society.
