Spectrum OLD vs NEW

about an hour ago in History & Culture Flag
I came across this new spectrum for modern India. It was more thick than the 2016 edition.
There must have been content addition in the new book.
Fellow aspirants, if any of you have read the new one (2018 edition), please tell me if it is necessary to read the new book or the old edition(2016) would suffice.
Thank you.
Nothing worth having ever comes easy !

    BA History - Political science. LLB. LLM student.

  • Yaar dekho. Aajkal UPSC kuch bhi pooch rahi hai, chahe Prelims ho ya mains ho...

    Ab kisne socha tha ki Lord Wellesley par is saal Prelims mein question as Jayega.. Yaa is saal Mains mein agar aisa hi kuch Ulta seedha question pooch liya toh..

    Isiliye behtar yahi hai ki Jitna zydaa se zyada cover kiya ja Sakta hai utna cover kar Liya jaaye...

    New edition thik hai mere khayal se toh.

    Baaki agar Optional history hai toh koi zaroorat Nahi fir New edition padhne ki
  • Nothing worth having ever comes easy !
  • If you have read old NCERT then old edition is fine IMO.

    New edition has some 400+ more pages and covers post independence topics too. Going by the upsc questions I guess new one should be purchased. 2016 edition content is too miniscule w.r.t. it
