Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time-Critical, Historical, and Miscellaneous Essays by Thomas Babington Macaulay. Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay, PC FRS FRSE (October 25, 1800 - December 28, 1859) was a British historian and Whig politician. He wrote extensively as an essayist, on contemporary and historical sociopolitical issues, and as a critic. His History of England was a seminal and paradigmatic example of Whig historiography, and his literary style has been praised since its publication, even after widespread condemnation of his historical claims that became popular in the 20th century. Macaulay served as Secretary of War between 1839 and 1841, and as Director General of Payments between 1846 and 1848. He played an important role in introducing Western and English concepts to education in India.He published his argument on the subject in the "Minute of Macaulay" in 1835. He supported the replacement of Persian by English as the official language, the use of English as a means of instruction in all schools, and the training of English-speaking Indians as teachers. On the other hand, this led to macaulaism in India, and the systematic elimination of traditional and ancient education and the vocational systems and sciences of India.
