Summary
  • "This is a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of a defining period in India's recent past - the attainment of independence and the simultaneous division of the subcontinent. Exploring the interplay of imperial, national and communal forces during the freedom movement. Sucheta Mahajan highlights the contradictory reality of an independence that also brought partition in its wake. She provides an insightful view of an era which marked the end of colonial rule in India while being a crucial phase during which the foundations of independent India's polity were laid."--Jacket
