The Indian Political Intelligence Office (IPIO) was an intelligence organisation initially established in England in 1909 in response to the dissemination of anarchist and revolutionary elements of Indian nationalism to different countries in Europe after the liquidation of India House (where it was based between 1905 and 1910) in London in 1909. It formally came to be called the Indian Political Intelligence (IPI) from 1921. By the time World War I broke out the IPIO, headed by John Wallinger, had been established in mainland Europe.

Solid account of intelligence operations and policy an interesting period--the unforeseen last chapter of empire.

essentially a fairly complete handbook, road map to the records of the British intelligence services efforts to counter Indian nationalists;
Tthe author should certainly get respect for slogging through the incredible number of files available and presenting in a chronological narrative;
issues of the effectiveness of the program is not really developed and the wider issues are not looked at; it's remit as a ph.d. thesis was to do a thorough work through of the files. It is like a giant flow chart. There are many minor errors resulting from regurgitating the story without a lot of analysis of the characters involved, especially, of the Indians and their supporters. There are more major errors in describing the major Indian players, some of which can be attributed to his English bias. These seem to be carried forward from his strict reading of the documents.
For example, one Indian is labeled as a parsi, which he was not, and this is evidence, in his narrative, for why he became an informer for the British. As it turns out, this man was in the employ of the British for very different reasons, not for the stereotyped penchant of Parsi's to work for the British which Popplewell is advancing here. I understand that in the scale of such a project that errors are made; however, when they frequently become the basis for such explanations, it certainly erodes the value of the rest, no matter how many documents he looked at.
