    My questions is about the causes of Indian Independence and how British rule (economic exploitation etc.) played a part in causing independence. I have just started reading my first book which criticises British rule in India but I have no clue how to analyse the book.

    Does anyone know how I should structure my analysis? How should I incorporate my quotes?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I believe if you are to look at it Historically then I would go about establishing facts and evens so you know what happened when.

    I would then do further reading to establish the why and how of things.

    I would read from a number of sources and hopefully ones that contrasted and opposed each other.

    I would then compare the evidence and views to decide what I thought were the issues and impact followed by an evaluation of event and views.
    I would then decide what my opinion was on the event.

    That then gives you a very detailed set of notes, which you can mould into your essay.

    The key is to have an open mind and no agenda. Your conclusions must stand up to independent scrutiny and you must be able to back up why you think it was about cause xyz.
