Marx and India

There is more to Marx's work on India that meets the eye.  Henry Carey was
working to oust Marx from the New York Tribune at the time.  Carey argued
that the British were responsible for all ills in the world.  Marx's article
was intended to tweak Carey.  He referred to this as his secret war on 
the Tribune in a letter to Engels.

This incident is written up in my 1987 book on Marx.
