by V. K. R. V. Rao
Director of the Delhi School of Economics
Dr. Rao talks about the published text of three lectures given in the United States last year by the Canadian historian, Frank H. Underhill. In these lectures, Professor Underhill gives an account of a representative Canadian concept of Commonwealth, and in his comments, Dr. Rao relates this to current Indian thought on the subject.
