This book throws new light on the administrative pattern of Nizam’s rule and attempts to trace out the political activities and the freedom struggle launched by the subjects of the former ruler of Hyderabad State. The subsidiary alliance with the British relieved the last Nizam of all responsibility to maintain peace and other which caused state-wise discontent among his subjects. The Activities of Hyderabad State Congress, Arya Samaj, Vande-Mataram Movement and Quit India Movement kept the flame of discontent against the autocratic rule of Nizam alive. He also gives a graphic picture of socio-economic condition of oppressed masses in the State. The subjects were caught in miserable plight due to very poor and insufficient facilities for general education, industrial development and an alarming state of poor economy. The terrorist activities of Razakars under the sympathetic canopy of the last Nizam disturbed the prevailing cordial religious atmosphere in the state which placed the people in the very precarious situation. The author has focussed on politicio-social and religio-economic life of the people in Marathwada and as such, the book traverses the courses of a unique exploration in this field.
